The Wolves of Savin Hill doesn’t have so much to do with a horror, its feet firmly planted in the crime thriller camp. Director John Beaton Hill combines a few different storylines: the aftermath of the young boys discovery, Sean’s murder and subsequent coverup of Tommy’s sister and Tommy getting suckered into a heist gone sour by his old friend. On their own these are all elements to a good story. However taken in all at once there are too many tangential plot points that don't feel fully fleshed out. Performances are pretty good and if you enjoy hard-boiled crime fiction and noir especially in the Raymond Chandler vein the film picks up some steam after the midway point.
Ultimately Wolves of Savin Hill is good in a “Hey I haven’t watched this on Netflix” kind of way. There's some potential within but there's nothing about it that stands out all that much
