Recently, I went to the movie with my family, and we saw The Wolfman with Anthony Hopkins and Benecio Del Toro as I mentioned in a previous blog post. If I had to have one favorite paranormal creature, it would have to be the werewolf. Yummy! One of my favorite werewolf movies had to be Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Those werewolves are what I think of when I read a book with werewolves, but what was in the movie The Wolfman was definitely more related to the classic monster movies with Lon Chaney, Jr. as opposed to what we have more of today with the Underworld movies.
Definitely wolfman instead of werewolf. I thought the movie was great for the approach it was aiming for. I had thought it would be a little more werewolfish instead of completely wolfmanish, but I didn’t do a lot of trailer watching and research into what it was like before we went. A family member laughed after it was over, but maybe my love of the paranormal is what gives me more of an appreciation for it.
All in all, if you’re thinking about seeing it, if you like classic monster movies, go ahead. But if Underworld is a bit more your style, maybe catch it at Blockbuster or on pay-per-view. =)
