Product Description

Amazon.ca

On the strength of his Hitchcockian-thriller debut, Mute Witness, writer-director Anthony Waller was hired to direct this belated sequel to the 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London, but lycanthropy in the City of Light just ain't what it used to be. The movie offers plenty of gruesome makeup and special wolf-transformation effects, and there are some effectively spooky moments in the plot involving an underground population of hungry Parisian werewolves. One of them is seductively played by Julie Delpy, who is rescued from attempted suicide by an American tourist (Tom Everett Scott, from That Thing You Do!) but ultimately can't hide her dual identity when darkness falls and the full moon shines. The movie begins well, but gradually succumbs to nonsense and mayhem, prompting critic Roger Ebert to observe that "here are people we don't care about, doing things they don't understand, in a movie without any rules." In other words, you'd have to be a die-hard horror buff to give this one the benefit of the doubt. --Jeff Shannon

2.0 out of 5 stars Remake werewolf in Paris Oct. 11 2006
Format:DVD
I enjoyed "American Werewolf In London:, but I will admit. This one went all wrong. They should not be afraid in doing a remake on this one. The only traits that I seen in this one that originates from American Werewolf In London, is that the crowd was convincing. No superstition to accentuate this film which should be a signature from the first one. The CGI effects are not bad at all (could be better). I do recommend however, that it is worth watching the first time. If they do a remake I also recommend owning a copy of this one just to have the original. It would be like the movie "The Punisher" which the remake is better. Should do a "An American Werewolf In Germany" (where a lot of werewolf legends overflow for a good night read). Maybe Russia or Scotland?

1.0 out of 5 stars Ouch! Aug. 11 2005
By El Cid
Format:DVD
This movie isn't the badest werewolf movie I ever seen, but it's because there is much competition. This movie is a shame, an error, a disease.
I watch all the werewolf movies I can, and I think this one took all the good stuff in all and use it as badly as possible.
The best thing is possibly that this movie is a racist manifestation against France, where werewolfs in Paris have nothing to do but kill Americans.
Don't think you can at least see good horror scene: this movie is made form children. There is less graphic violence than in Star Wars Episode I. There is at least one scenaric error all the 15 minutes. And all the good stuff is stollen from other movies, mainly «An American Werewolf In London», by far best.
Not he badest, but not far.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible May 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a terrible movie and it's a shame it's even associated with one of my all time favorites, An American Werewolf in London. The animation here is novice, the acting is bad, the script is silly. Overdone, overproduced, overkill. Skip this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serafine cured in the ambulance, maybe? April 9 2004
Format:DVD
*spoiler*
Was that injection adrenaline, a stimulant? Opposite of the depressant that caused the instant transformation... Maybe it was an instant cure... Hence the "I love you" that made that goofy guy grin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weaker Relative of A Strong English Parent Feb. 27 2004
Format:DVD
Thanks to George Gershin's American in Paris, An American Werewolf in Paris was a natural after An American Werewolf in London--I was even calling the first film that as a not terribly funny joke when it came out. American Werewolf in London was a terrific film, breaking new grounds in werewolf transformations--they were truly astonishing, revoltingly gory bubbling hideous seeping stretching changes that made the audience realize how truly horrifying and painful becoming a werewolf would be. And then there was the lead character's best friend, a tortured corpse who kept decaying in disgusting detail throughout the film. To top it off, all this absolutely innovative and realistic special effects was matched with a smart, funny script, terrific acting, and a witty soundtrack--it's still one of the best horror films ever made.
So it's no surprise that a sequel would be made, and it's no surprise that the sequel falls short, especially given that none of the major personalities involved in the original returned. Directing, script, acting, special effects, music, are all in different and apparently less proficient hands. It's not that American Werewolf in Paris is a bad movie, not by a long shot, but it pales in comparison to its parent.
Two major weaknesses mar the film. The first, and most serious, is that it all too often tries too hard to be funny, and falls flat. Most of the humor is abandoned toward the end in favor of action and at that point the movie improves, but early scenes made me suspect the whole thing was going to be a failure. The second flaw is that the CGI werewolves are really inferior They blend badly with the live action at several points, and frankly it's almost always hard to really make them out, especially their faces.

4.0 out of 5 stars FULL MOON FUNNIES Feb. 14 2004
Format:DVD
I liked this movie; it's not quite as "novel" as its predecessor, set in London, but it still has some fresh and chilling moments. I didn't mind the CGI werewolves, they were kind of neat. Here's some other thoughts:
*PHIL BUCKMAN might have made a better hero than TOM EVERETT SCOTT; where Scott had the boyish naievete down, he didn't have the physical swagger or heroic drive that Mr. Buckman had. Buckman should have gotten more screen time.
*JULIE DELPY didn't put enough ooomph in her role, either. She's lovely, but listless.
*I never understood exactly what Delpy's father was trying to do, and whether by the end Delpy was still a werewolf?
*Julie Bowen was a howl as the ditsy pickup, and even funnier as one of the walking dead.
*Why Did Delpy think she was the one who had werewolfized Scott?
A pleasant, if inconsistent, diversion.
