When a British Army platoon led by Wells (Pertwee) stumbles across a stack of bloody bodies (the remains of a top-secret special services unit) out in the middle of the Scottish Highlands, it's obvious that there's something very strange going on. Their suspicions are confirmed when they find a civilian zoologist wandering through the woods looking for evidence of some very shaggy beasts. Before they have a chance to say "silver bullets", the platoon's holed up in an abandoned farm house fighting off a bunch of attackers who all look like they need a good short back 'n' sides.
Cooper: Go on then Bruce, what scares you?
Bruce: The self-destructive nature of the human condition.
Spoon: You're just taking the piss now.
Cooper: What about you, Spoon?
Cooper: There's no argument there. Joe?
Joe: Only one thing guaranteed to put the shits up me: a penalty shoot-out.
Cooper: Figures. Terry?
Terry: Watching a penalty shoot-out... with Joe.
Bruce: What about you, Coop?
Cooper: Spiders. And women. And... spider-women.
Trivia: In the scene where Wells asks Cooper to knock him out, Kevin McKidd throws a stage punch the first time, but misjudges the distance of the second and catches Sean Pertwee on the nose. Pertwee didn't feel the punch however as he really was drunk for that scene. This is all talked through on the DVD.
