Phil reviews the unbelievably awful An American Werewolf in Paris, the sequel to the John Landis horror classic An American Werewolf in London, and the poster child for sequels that completely miss what made the original great.

“This movie is a Part 4. And with very few exceptions, franchises that last all the way to a fourth installment end up scraping the bottom of the cinematic barrel. And when it comes to horror franchises in particular, there's a tendency to continue on even after hitting bottom, and using the shredded, shattered remnants of the cinematic barrel itself to make at least three more shitty sequels after that.”Stargate SG-1 “Avenger 2.0”
“While it isn’t the worst concept for an episode ever, it’s still not winning fan love, twelve years after it aired. Okay, so maybe some fans love it, but this fan cringes over the existence of it.”Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1989)

"I think we may have seen more of John Travolta's crotch in this 96-minute film than Kelly Preston has in the entire time she's been married to him."Why Charlize Theron should have played Mad Max
“A post-apocalyptic version of (let’s face it) the Wacky Racers doesn’t feel like something that people have any kind of racial hang-ups about, so why would people mind if a woman took over?”An American Werewolf in London (1981)
In this episode, we take a look at the classic '80s horror/comedy An American Werewolf in London, directed by John Landis.
