Much too lame to be considered a sequel to "An American Werewolf in London."

The humor isn't funny, the horror isn't scary, and the digital wolf f/x look cheap.

If you liked ...London for its wit, chances are this one will fall flat for you as it did for me.

Lacks the style, wit and suspense that marked Waller's debut feature, Mute Witness.

Audience Reviews for An American Werewolf in Paris

Hmmm not too bad, the wolf effects are very poor cgi which makes the wolf look like its sick and losing weight. The gore is great and the concept is OK despite being a complete rerun of the first but its the look and feel of the film which still just about manages to win. The film still has the originals appeal with its kooky black humour and macabre sequences but main lead Scott is a bit weak along with the rest of the cast.

An American Werewolf in Paris is an insult to Jon Landis's landmark film. This film features nothing to redeem it's stupidity. The film is simply a washed out version of Landis' classic Werewolf film. The film has some very bad CGI effects, and it has a terrible cast to act out the dreadful scenes. This is one film that should be avoided, it's not even a decent film. This film is a poor excuse to cash in on An American Werewolf In London, now that was a werewolf picture. This film is pure and simply a travesty and is not worth your hard earned money. They could've done something great maybe if Jon Landis and Rob Baker were involved in the project, but instead they hired a hack of a director to market this brainless piece of crap to a "hip and cool" generation of teens. What a waste of money, and Celluloid, the only way this film could have been great was with a rewrite and Jon Landis helming the project. Nothing new to be found here, just a headache of a film.

Not near as serious as "in London", and had quite a few lame jokes. But in a mood like "The Frighteners" it was horror comedy that you can still enjoy. The monster effects waver from cool to really lame CGI. Worth it if you're feeling really lazy and there is nothing else to watch on your streaming video.

An American Werewolf in Paris has no real connection with it's predecessor. However it does follow the same premise and keeps the interesting mythology it started. Paris may not be as classic as it's dry and bizarre prequel, but it is just as entertaining. The humour is only really littered about the first half, but it is very decent. The werewolves themselves are mostly CGI. Though these effects now look amateurish, they are no worse than the monstrosities that we saw in I Am Legend. The difference being that Paris is over 10 years old. It was actually a brave decision for a technique only just breaking out in movies. The corpses are again the real highlight, it adds to the character dynamics. However I'm not sure they resolved the corpses plot lines in this one. A fun and funny film that is tongue in cheek, but never laughable.
