What I consider the best werewolf movie of all time. I didn't care for Paris too much, although the transformation scenes were okay, which is funny, because I think the London transformation scenes were a lot more amazing and realistic looking! Although there are comical moments in London, this is a very dark movie, with tragedy written all over it starting with the first fifteen minutes. The actors are enchanting and the scenery is breathtaking. The best scenes are the Piccadily Circus scene and the subway. This is definitely a four star movie.

House of Horrors is probably the best place to go for info on horror movies period. This place is so informative and graphic filled. There is also a wonderful place to order from through here called Blackest Heart Media. Please check it out entirely...but you'll be there for a while, there is just so much neat stuff to check out!
This is a site that has a link to an actual fan page devoted to David Naughton, the star of American Werewolf. The reason I didn't just link directly to the David Naughton site is because this is an interesting site devoted to fan pages, a lot that are hard to find.
Actually, this site is a fan site devoted to Paris, but it's pretty good!
