[Reviews by cornholio and Maynard Morrissey.]

Ambrose (Nick Damici) used to be a soldier but now he is old and blind. He just moved to a new place, a retirement community. But instead of the peace and quite one would associate with such a community, Ambrose finds that people there are dying from mysterious dog bites quite a lot. But at the first full moon, Ambrose is attacked himself and realizes that those are not actually dogs. So he decides to go to war with the creatures.

With the choice of setting and protagonist, Late Phases has all the possibilities for a really fresh take on werewolf stories. But while the idea is great, its execution left me completely cold.
