An American Werewolf in Paris

Movie Summary

Director:
Anthony Waller
Released:
1997
Rating:
R
An American Werewolf in Paris is the widely reviled sequel to the classic 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London. It came out in 1997 and was directed by Anthony Waller. While the original had Oscar award winning practical special effects, this poor sequel featured low quality cgi transformations that have not aged well at all. The film follows the American tourist Andy McDermott (played by Thomas Everett Scott). While at the Eiffel Tower he rescues a suicidal girl names Serafine (played by Julie Delpy) from jumping off it to her death. However after rescuing her she quickly disappears. Andy is focused on finding her however and eventually tracks her down. However he doe not know that Serafine is the daughter of the couple from the first film, and, as such, is a werewolf. On their first date Andy ends up getting chased by another werewolf and is bitten. He wakes up in Serafine's bed and she tells him he is now becoming a werewolf as well. Now it is up to Andy to hunt down and kill the werewolf who bit him and Serafine to hopefully end the curse.moreless
