    Definitely “An American Werewolf in London” is #1. “Monster Squad” was a definite favorite as a kid.

    My grandmother’s favorite movie was The Howling – strangely enough. I’ve yet to see it – I should…

    I just watched a fun New Zealand mockumentary recently called “What We Do in the Shadows” that has a great twist on werewolves (and vampires) living in modern-day New Zealand. Very funny stuff.

    American Werewolf in London is great. The last thirty minutes especially utilized the humor and unhinging of the character beautifully.
