Movie Reviews

A darkly funny werewolf movie.

Not your average werewolf movie - this is much better than that. Decent plot, though not overly original. No, what sets this apart is the humour and the A-grade production and performances.

There's hints of the comedy aspect early on, but those are mostly just witty dialogue and you think it is just the usual banter of young people. It is only once David is in hospital that you realise that this is almost as much a comedy as a drama. The bumbling detective, the appearance of his dead friend (on a few occasions) and their discussions, some of the other scenes. Wherever possible, writer-director John Landis throws in some humour.

Production is also very good. Werewolf movies are often B-grade (at best) efforts and this is far better than that.

Good cast too. Solid performance by David Naughton in the lead role, as well as from Jenny Agutter.

I have a question...

The doctor says that David has been asleep (comatose, in my opinion) for three weeks. My question is: where are his parents? I'm a Mom and if an embassy official told me my kid was in the hospital overseas, I'd be on the first plane out of the country.

Other than that, still as good and scary as when it was first released.

Landis' Best Film

Just a really fun and seamless mix of comedy and horror that totally lives up to its reputation, especially that phenomenally cool and terrifyingly painful transformation scene. Outside of that though, there's still tons of genre goodness: love the mysterious pub full of steel-eyed townspeople, love the lyrically blunt soundtrack, love how British it can be ("A naked American man stole my balloons.") Even poor-man's-Harold-Ramis David Naughton can't distract from the fun.
