Dat transformation sequence!
A little disappointed at first. Then more disappointment. I think it got such a good reputation because the transformation at the time was amazing. The script seems clunky, it doesn't flow at all, and the dialogue is either too camp or unnatural to fit the movies look when it attempts to be moody. It destroys any atmosphere. Overal the dialogue has a dumbed down and unoriginal feel.
The main actor, as well as some others, are really poor. They don't get the feelings across at all. Making scenes pointless. The scenes after a while feel like poor set pieces. After seeing the pub with the pentagram a few times a I begin to wonder if the movie was a joke. The idea that the main charcater thinks he main be mad is completely pointless as we all know he's a werewolf. But that's the imagination of John Landis. The plots doesn't go anywhere interesting either. I think the transformation is good. The part when he tries to insult all that's English... Embarrassing. He warns his love interest to stay away be a use he's dangerous. It's still daytime. Then rest of the movie is awful.
I don't mind cheesy scripts but this also tries to be serious and it never succeeds with any. No atmosphere or suspense to feel scared and not funny enough to be a comedy. Aged bad.
One of the best horror movies ever made but if anyone refers to it as a comedy horror ill be forced to hurt you very badly!! And the transformation scene is hands down the best scene in any horror movie couldn't be bettered if with today's SFX "i didn't mean to call you meatloaf,jack"
This movie's pretty shitty, giving it a 5 but just because of the famed balloon thief part. Cried laughing.
