Topic: American Werewolf in London Vs. The Howling
Which is your favorite and why?
I am a huge Joe Dante fan which has me leaning towards the Howling a little bit. The atmosphere at the resort and the antagonist is just a little more frightening than anything going on in American Werewolf in London. Pino Dinaggio's score is just on another level than what's going on in American Werewolf in London musically. He scored Carrie and basically every De Palma film. I do really enjoy how friendly AWIL is. Starting off with Blue Moon and the great dialogue from the two guys who are about to get mangled these two movies are pretty darn different considering how often they get compared. AWIL has it's moments of nice gore as well I really go back and forth on this. Something about Landis' direction I really do like. It just looks a little better than Dante's. Dante is hilarious though he literally had the fog pouring in which is something he does on a lot of his films.
While we are at it what are some of your other favorite werewolf films?
I just got Teen Wolf on Blu Ray....
