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

Co-writer Tom Stern revealed: "I had visited Paris a few times with a friend of mine who grew up there, who had told me all about the catacombs and how they used to, when they were teenagers, go party in there. They'd explore the closed down parts of the catacombs, wading through waist-deep water and one time, they took acid and were tripping as they crawled around these ancient catacombs in water with human skulls, just carrying a flashlight in the pitch darkness. So I had that image in my head, that seed of inspiration." Burns says the catacombs proved a big jumping off for another critical element as the two writers prepared their initial pitch. "We started to think about rave culture - it was just starting at the time," Burns said. "Our idea was that the problem with being a werewolf is you're just a dumb animal, and the character who's a werewolf can't talk, he can't respond. So we started to think of whether there was any way you could be a werewolf and be aware of what's happening. We'd found this psychedelic magazine, Psychedelic Illumination, that talked about this 'new' designer drug DMT, and these controlled 'lucid dreaming' trips you could supposedly go on. That's how we got into this dream control and hallucinogenics that gave you some sort of heightened awareness." See more »
When the werewolves are attacking everybody at the St. De Loup church, Chris begins to rock back and forth eventually causing the cross he's tied to to break and fall backwards. When the police arrive and people are escaping, Chris is seen running out of the church still tied to the cross. There would be no way for Chris to be able to get up and run since everybody was clearly trying to escape and nobody would stop to help him up. See more »
I enjoyed this movie. Its not in the same league as the Original (An American Werewolf in London), but fun all the same. I think a lot of the reviewers on here have gave it a bad write-up, because they were probably comparing it to the original too much.
6 out of 10 ... It's worth watching.
