Werewolves: A Journey of Transformation (Redux)

This is a revamp of my previous werewolf list because I set that one up as a Twitter list by accident. This is just the I originally intended to set-up.

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

"""Directed by John Landis. With David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, Joe Belcher, Griffin Dunne. Two American college students on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists."" via IMDB

Can you believe that the guy who helped bring us Animal House also brought us this awesome werewolf movie? It is so wolfy! Don't let the ""comedy"" tag on IMDB fool you. American Werewolf has it's funny moments, but the lodge frequented by the wolf-aware locals is super creepy. If you have never seen this movie, be sure to add it to your October to-watch list . . . . if you dare!"

Ginger Snaps (2000)

"""Directed by John Fawcett. With Emily Perkins, Katharine Isabelle, Kris Lemche, Mimi Rogers. Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf."" via IMDB

A Canadian Werewolf movie---with girls. Really? Oh yes! This movie is a ""flipping"" force of nature. Just stop after the first one and avoid the sequel---it loses everything that made the original great. If you've got a sister you share a special bond with, ladies, this one is for you. If you're a dude, you probably will still love it because it's a great werewolf movie."

Werewolf Makeup Halloween Tutorial- CHRISSPY

Okay, so if you follow me on social media, you know I have a bit of a Chrisspy! and makeup obsession. The two work well together. She is a talented makeup artist. What can I say? Anyway, if you're thinking, "Forget this werewolf movie stuff. I want to BE a werewolf," this tutorial is a great place to start. I don't know if I can advocate for the groovy contact lenses, but if you have good eyesight and can get away with virtually no RX on those, you go with your bad self. Arr.!

The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde--the ultimate classic that inspired so many of us to look within . . . to the DARK SIDE! This also inspired Mary Reilly.

Mary Reilly (1996)

"""Directed by Stephen Frears. With Julia Roberts, John Malkovich, George Cole, Michael Gambon. A housemaid falls in love with Dr. Jekyll and his darkly mysterious counterpart, Mr. Hyde."" via IMDB

Why love one side of a man when you can have two? Say what you want, but yes, I think the Jekyll/Hyde phenomenon is totally like a werewolf."

Mary Reilly

Who has the patience to write a version of Jekyll and Hyde from the maid's perspective? Apparently, Valerie Martin did. Wanna get creeped out?


182 West 4th Street

The Slaughtered Lamb Pub--Pop a cold one or scarf down some pub food (or both) American Werewolf in New York style at this kitschy pub inspired by American Werewolf in London. Yes, there are stuffed wolf heads and other appetizing decorative items throughout the pub because what else would you want to see there?

Dog Soldiers (2002)

"Directed by Neil Marshall. With Sean Pertwee, Kevin McKidd, Emma Cleasby, Liam Cunningham. A routine military exercise turns into a nightmare in the Scotland wilderness."~from IMDB. Props to you if you can understand what the heck people are saying in this movie. My husband loves it. If you're having a horror movie marathon, you may want to put this toward the beginning of the queue when people can still put their sonar hearing on.
