Skinwalkers is an excellent film. Adam Beach as Jim Chee and Wes Studi as Jim Leaphorn are both believable and interesting. The story is a good portrayal of the place of menacing supernatural beliefs in Navajo lore, which weaves seamlessly through the suspenseful, modern police thriller tale. The setting is stunning, though the red rock colors and brilliant greens go a little over the top. The Navajo lands here in Arizona are not quite as breathtaking in real life. In the film, though, they are a stark contrast to the poverty, problems, and government neglect of the people, especially in the scenes in the abandoned paint factory, where the young boy is well on his way to death from lead poisoning. The supernatural aspects of the film are scary, as are the threats to the police investigators and the innocent boy. This film is a good introduction to the stories of Tony Hillerman and also to the unique history and culture of the Navajo people.

Well worth the watch, already viewing it on Netflix, loving it so buying it for my forever collection. Was surprised that it was made 14 years ago ! We've got four generations in our family loving it.
