AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS (1997)


John Landis' 1981 classic AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON will forever be one of the great self-aware horror parodies (basically what 2005's CURSED tried to be).  But in 1997, a sequel came along...AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS.

Breakdown:
The daughter of the werewolf from AWIL is alive and living in Paris where her mother (from the first film) and stepfather are trying to overcome her lycanthropic disease. A trio of American tourists on a thrill seeking trip around Europe manage to stop her from plunging to her death from the top of the Eiffel tower and are embroiled in a horrific but often hilarious plot involving a secret society of werewolves based in the city and a drug which allows werewolves to change at any time... This time there's no need for a full moon...

From Ben Jewitt on IMDb

My thoughts:
Like I said in the intro, it's tough to follow a classic like the 1981 original...even if it is 16 years later.  Don't get me wrong, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS definitely had its moments.  I actually quite enjoyed it when it was first released.  But as far as post-modern self-aware werewolf movies go, I'll take CURSED any day.
