Storyline

The daughter of the werewolf from AWIL is alive and living in Paris where her mother (from the first film) and stepfather are trying to overcome her lycanthropic disease. A trio of American tourists on a thrill seeking trip around Europe manage to stop her from plunging to her death from the top of the Eiffel tower and are embroiled in a horrific but often hilarious plot involving a secret society of werewolves based in the city and a drug which allows werewolves to change at any time... This time there's no need for a full moon... Written by Ben Jewitt <moribund.boy@mcmail.com>

Bad wolf!
15 August 1998 | by (portland, or) – See all my reviews

It's very hard to compare this movie with American Werewolf in London.There, the first-time seen transformation effects, the plot and the acting were very satisfying, and the movie was a classic of contemporary horror. Here, lots of loose ends in the screenplay and incredibly poor acting made this film enjoyable only for the see-all-terror-movies buffs. The movie shows well the trend of using CG (computer graphics) in every key scene, which really seems artificial and boring after some shots.
