The novelization by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright is based on the shooting script rather than the finished film. This is the reason that the novel diverges noticeably from the film. See more »
Valerie's grandmother made the cloak for her. It is shown several times in the movie to be only ankle length on her. But in many of the scenes it is shown to be about 30 feet long, way too long to be of any practical use. This could be interpreted as an intended difference in length since the 30 feet long cloak only appears in scenes in which Valerie is dreaming of running away with Peter. See more »
I went to the cinema today with two good friends to see this film. I had seen the trailer and got worked up that this would be a good film. However, it is not as good as it could have been. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy some of the film. Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons and the excellent Gary Oldman acted brilliantly in the film, and the effects for the Werewolf were pretty fantastic as well. However, the rest of the cast let this film down and although it is classed as a "horror" movie, there is only really one jump-worthy moment. I don't want to give away the secret of the wolf, but if you listen closely, you can easily tell who it is...
There is a bit of gore, but if you are into some of the supernatural stuff (especially Twilight, even though I'm not a fan), you should give it a shot and might like this... but horror-lovers, keep well away, you might end up feeling a bit ripped-off...
