For those who were curious about this film we profiled last October, when it was in production, you should know that it's now available for streaming on Netflix, if you have a Netflix streaming account. 

The thriller was previously titled Wards Island, when we first alerted you to it last year, but it's now called Battledogs.

The film, which stars Dennis HaysbertAriana RichardsErnie HudsonCraig Scheffer, and Bill Duke, centers on a viral outbreak in New York City that turns the infected into werewolves.

Alexander Yellen is its director, making his directorial debut.

The film was shot in Buffalo, which stood in for New York City, where the real Ward Island is located.

Haysbert plays Lt. General Christopher Monning; Bill Duke plays President Donald Sheridan; and Ernie Hudson plays a character named Max Stevens.

A werewolf outbreak in New York City, with Dennis Haysbert, Ernie Hudson and Bill Duke, all in it sounds like it could be fun. Unfortunately, it doesn't look that way in the below trailer.

The film aired on the Syfy channel earlier this spring, courtesy of Asylum, known very well for their home video genre releases, that are, at times, rip-offs of Hollywood studio movies.

Here's the trailer. If you're intrigued by what you see, you can now watch the whole film on streaming on Netflix:

    The CG actually looks too good for Asylum

    So it's a rip-off of WWZ but only with Werewolves instead of zombies! Check please.
