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

Having nailed down the preliminary details of the creature, Tom Stern felt he was ready to pitch Sighvatsson and his producing partner Steve Golan. "I had the sculpture (of the werewolf), I had the storyboards done, and I had a pretty good presentation," he said. "I made this big, passionate presentation and Steve Golan was basically like 'well, that's nice, but there's no way they're going to let you direct it. It's not about your idea. It's about finding a bankable director whom the foreign investors will accept as bankable'. At that point, I felt really betrayed because I'd done all this work on a presentation only to find out it was pointless, so I was angry, and I think I kind of showed my anger in that meeting, which was probably not a good career move." From that point, Stern was out as director. Both he and Burns were still officially attached to the project as writers for the moment - just with a different director at the helm. See more »
When Andy bungee jumps off the Eiffel Tower, he hits his head on the rebound. If he had rebounded back from where he was shown, it would have smashed his skull to pieces and killed him instantly. See more »

Not as bad as it could have been...
This movie was not a terrible successor to the 1981 classic An American Werewolf in London. There are ways in which it could have been worse. The possibility that Seraphine could have been David's (the werewolf in the original) daughter was presented in a rumor mill while the film was still in post, the idea turned my stomach. Thankfully, they took it in a different direction. The humor is good, the special effects are somewhat lacking, but overall the idea was a great one. Fans of the original shouldn't be mad, the two films stand on their own, as separate entities. Will they make another? The question is already being tossed about, I hear.
