Beware of the hair
13 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

A new documentary about Werewolf in London. Some people think that it is not necessary. But could there be enough documentaries, about one of the best Horror films of the last century? I don't think so. And this documentary is edited very well. You get some anecdotes, the ever so great John Landis, who is always on "full" mode. He is so full of energy, you wish you could see even more of him!

If you also consider, how this movie/documentary came to be, it is really more than an achievement by Paul Davis. It also is an indicator for up and coming new filmmakers, that you just have to believe in yourself and your chance will come. Paul D. is now off, having a full schedule and many other projects coming up. Another good thing? You can get this on the new "American Werewolf in London" DVD or Blu Ray as a Special Edition Bonus!
