American Werewolf in London Remake

Word is out that the movie American Werewolf in London is definitely going to be remade.  No ifs, ands, or buts – an AWIL remake is on the way!  This is good and bad.  Good because of course, any movie that is centered around werewolves – especially one as good as American Werewolf in London – deserves to be seen by new audiences.  I know alot of times, I hate seeing movies that are old just because they seem so…well,…old!  So, it will be nice to see a modern retelling.  Also, I think this movie is a better “werewolf movie” than the other recent werewolf movie remake – the Wolf Man.    Sure, American Werewolf in London only shows one blood-lusty version of the werewolf, but it does have it’s good points…it shows the pain of the werewolf transformation like no other movie before or since has done so vividly, and because of this, offers a tiny bit of insight into the difficulties werewolves face.

But, the bad part is that since it is a classic, so are they going to ruin it by redoing it?  So many movies they’ve redone have bad cgi, and bad acting and you just end up wishing they had left it alone.  They redo it because they know it comes with a fan base – lovers of the original, lovers of werewolves, and lovers of horror movies.  Why bother making it good when werewolf fans especially will be lined up to see it anyway?  Hopefully, this will not be the fate of AWIL.  I think that werewolves deserve another movie in theaters – one as good as AWIL…and hopefully the director and producer are werewolf fans too and don’t screw it up for us.

(P.S. – The writer they’ve signed on for the American Werewolf in London remake is Fernley Phillips – writer of the movie The Number 23).

    American Werewolf in London is one of my favourite movies, so I hope it’s good. Has anyone seen American Werewolf in Paris? Because I watched 30 minutes of it then stopped because it was really bad.

  3. Lunar says:

    It all depends on who remakes it and how much effort they put into it. Sometimes remakes come out good. All depends.

  4. Aconissa says:

    @Lunar: Definitely. Not many people like the wolfman remake, buts its my favourite movie. But all in all, remakes are usually not quite as good.

  5. Lunar says:

    I liked the remake better than the original. But that’s just my opinion.

  6. Aconissa says:

    @Lunar: Awesome! Its nice to know Im not the only one who likes the remake more…. But ive been to sites that talked about it, and they all said its really bad. Damn them.

    Everyone has their own preference of movies. Critics are there criticize, hence the name.

    Interesting Fact: Put two straws in your mouth: one inside a drink and one outside it. You won’t be able to drink through either straw. Try it!

  9. Aconissa says:

    It sounds awesome and I would, if I had straws at home 🙂

  10. Aconissa says:

    It sounds fun and I would try, but I don’t have any straws in my house 🙁

  11. Aconissa says:

    Comment awaiting moderation? WHY!?
    Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I don’t have any straws at home so I can’t try it but I will when I can, it sounds awesome

  12. Aconissa says:

    For some reason all my comments telling you that I don’t have any straws at home and therefore unfortunately cannot try the trick are “awaiting moderation”. How annoying.

  13. Aconissa says:

    Sadly, I don’t own any straws 🙁

  14. Aconissa says:

    Lunar, my comment wont stop awaiting moderation. What Im trying to say is I cant try the trick cause I dont have any s’traws

  15. Aconissa says:

    I’ll try when I get some straws, it sounds fun 😀

  16. Aconissa says:

    I’m sorry, all my comments are awaiting moderation. ALL OF THEM. Its so annoying. Just know that I cant try the trick, have no straws

  17. Aconissa says:

    I cant comment on what you said cause all my comments are awaiting moderation! It sucks.

  18. Lunar says:

    Mine was too on this one. But I can see your comment just fine. It took a day at least for my straw comment to go through.

  19. Aconissa says:

    Now they are ALL working! Weird!

  20. Lunar says:

    Lmao that’s a lot of comments

  21. Lunar says:

    Wonder why this one is sending everyone’s stuff to “moderated” :\

  22. Aconissa says:

    @Lunar: Somethings wrong with this post.

  23. Lunar says:

    lol I gathered that. I was meaning more of the lines of exactly what was causing it. Guess they fixed it.
