Does anyone know of a werewolf comedy film? I can't think of one...

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] June 12 2006 11:09 PM EDT

An American Werewolf in London, 1981 (John Landis). How funny does it have to be to be shelved in "comedy"?

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] June 12 2006 11:21 PM EDT

That one with Michael J Fox in it, I can't remember the name.

there is nothing comedic about teen wolf

Stephen June 12 2006 11:24 PM EDT

Teen Wolf and Teen Wolf Too. Although that is 'comedy' in its weakest sense of the word.

Mem June 12 2006 11:25 PM EDT

You disappoint me, Bast. I love American Werewolf in London. If anything, its sequel, American Werewolf in Paris, could be considered.

And Teen Wolf was most assuredly not a comedy. It was silly, to be sure, but it wasn't a comedy.

I'm talking actual, conscious comedy. I don't need your list of comical werewolf filmmaking. I already know there's a huge, long list of it.

Abbott and Costello never did get around to meeting the Wolf Man for some reason.

Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolf-man

The Shaggy D.A.? Is a man/dog comedy close enough?

QBJohnnywas June 13 2006 3:01 AM EDT

American Werewolf In London, while a brilliant movie, was definitely comedy - a very funny send up of every werewolf/horror cliche going. It just happened to be very scary as well.

The scene when his (dead) best friend visits him in the hospital and eats toast was hilarious.

Great film though, fantastic soundtrack and Jenny Agutter.

Dog Soldiers.

'Do you think it's all over? It is now.'

Mem June 13 2006 6:14 PM EDT

I wholeheartedly disagree with you, Johnny. I did not laugh once during AAWiL. If it was a comedy it sure had a funny way of showing it (bad pun, I know). I sure would like to see a werewolf comedy with intentions of being a werewolf comedy. It'd be a riot... (I know, I shouldn't have...)

QBJohnnywas June 13 2006 6:20 PM EDT

I think for me that's why American Werewolf is such a good film, because you can take it seriously as well. Landis never once shows anything but respect for the genre and as a straight horror movie it is one of the best. I guess it's not out and out comedy but of course one man's comedy is..well, I laugh at some strange things!

Full Moon High (1981)

QBJohnnywas June 13 2006 6:33 PM EDT

You should check out GL's recommendation Dog Soldiers if you haven't already seen it. It's more send up and black comedy than outright laugh a minute stuff but it is a really good film.

And if there aren't any decent werewolf movies out there....write one! ;)

Mem June 13 2006 6:40 PM EDT

Well, duh!

AdminG Beee June 13 2006 6:45 PM EDT

And another, perhaps more promising this time. Curse (1999)

Where's Spoon?

There is no Spoon! :D

Mem June 13 2006 7:11 PM EDT

I'm sorry, Beee, but metaphors to a woman's period don't exactly strike me as funny...

Thraklight Resonance June 13 2006 7:16 PM EDT

I saw a rumor posted sometime back that Peter David's "Howling Mad" might get turned into a film, but nothing so far.

Stephen June 13 2006 7:23 PM EDT

Are you kidding? Women's periods are comedy gold!

And where do you think the whole "turn a normal person into a howling dog once a month every full moon thing" originated from?
