Howling Good Fun
I saw this movie not really sure what to expect from it. I love the classic monster movies and I usually don't like remakes, but this one was pretty good. I saw the directors cut but I'm not really sure what the differences were. The plot was similar to that of the original Wolfman movie. It revolves around Lawrence Talbot traveling to visit his father. While at a Gypsy camp he is attacked by werewolf and is bitten. He survives the attack but notices the changes in his body. He recovers from his injuries at an unnatural speed, which is the first sign that something is different about him. That night he transforms into a savage beast and wreaks havok on the surrounding area. The next morning he is arrested for his crimes and thrown in an asylum. He escapes the asylum and causes more carnage in the city. I will not give away the rest of the plot but I will say it involves a fight with another werewolf. In the end the only real complaint I have is with the previously mentioned werewolf battle, it was quite unnecessary and out of place. There were some rather violent scenes but they fit in well with the theme of a savage monster, as the movie would make no sense if they weren't there. I would definately recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the horror genre who won't mind a change to the classic.
