This hip, edgy thriller -- in the electrifying tradition of SCREAM, SCREAM 2, and FROM DUSK TILL DAWN -- delivers a howling good time with a hot young cast of stars! On the loose in Europe, three wild college grads from America bring their "Daredevil Tour" to Paris in search of some serious fun. There, Andy (Tom Everett Scott -- THAT THING YOU DO!) falls for the beautiful and mysterious woman of his dreams (Julie Delpy -- THE THREE MUSKETEERS). The only problem is ... when the moon is full, Andy's dream girl turns into a total nightmare! Rocking with a cool soundtrack featuring today's hottest cutting-edge recording artists, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS is an outrageously thrilling adventure you don't want to miss!
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 ShannonSee all Product description

It was not as good as "An American Werewolf in London". I feel like watching "An American Werewolf in London", again, but not "An American Werewolf in Paris".
"An American Werewolf in Paris" was just another horror flick that contained nudity.
The music was noisy (lots of punk rock) and not great. The plot was somewhat entertaining. There were lots of 'loose ends', at the end, though. So, the film was also somewhat disappointing/frustrating, but this shortcoming was not not a 'deal-killer'. I guess that was because the movie was weak/tedious, from the start. So, by the end, my expectations were already low.
Thus, the film was 'passable', but it could have been much-better.
Bottom Line: I'm glad I saw "An American Werewolf in Paris", because I had seen "An American Werewolf in London" and, so, was curious about the sequel.
Yet, I do not want to see "An American Werewolf in Paris" again.
Furthermore, if you have already seen "An American Werewolf in London", then you can go through life quite easily without seeing "An American Werewolf in Paris"; it is not another "An American Werewolf in London".
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.

Was that injection adrenaline, a stimulant? Opposite of the depressant that caused the instant transformation... Maybe it was an instant cure...Read more
