Skinwalkers (2002)
Starring: Adam Beach, Wes Studi, Saginaw Grant,
Director: Chris Eyre
Category: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Suspense
Studio: Warner Home Video/PBS Pictures
97 Mins.



From the director of Smoke Signals, comes a mystery from the Southwest. Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, played by Wes Studi (The Last of the Mohicans, Dances with Wolves), and Officer Jim Chee, played by Adam Beech (Windtalkers, Smoke Signals), of the Navajo Tribal Police investigate the murder of medicine man Roman George, who has left a partially completed pictograph at the crime scene. A clue to his killer? Chee thinks so, since he himself is studying to be a medicine man with his former guardian, Wilson Sam. One clue sends chills through the young officer: an arrow used in the killing has a tip of human bone, a sign that a Navajo spirit - a "skinwalker" - is at work. Leaphorn has little patience for his partner's interest in the supernatural. Moreover, he is distracted by the deteriorating health of his wife Emma, who is diagnosed with recurrent cancer by Dr. Stone, a brilliant young Navajo physician who has recently returned to the reservation. The plot thickens when medicine man Roosevelt Bistie turns up dismembered at an archaeological dig. Again, there are signs of a skinwalker on the job, including human footprints that turn into animal tracks - a trademark of skinwalkers.
