St. Larry, patron of werewolves
For today’s special Devil’s Night edition of Lisa Marie’s Favorite Grindhouse Trailers, we pay tribute to the werewolves!
Sadly, werewolves have been kind of overshadowed lately. Everyone loves the zombies. Everyone loves the vampires. Everyone loves the weird little creatures that secretly control the Dark Web. But, werewolves — those brave lycanthropes — have not been getting the respect that they deserve.
So, to correct that, here are 6 trailers for the wolves!
- The Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
Oliver Reed as a werewolf? Hey, it makes sense. This classic Hammer film brought new fame to the werewolves of London.
2. The Werewolf of Washington (1973)
The movie has its issues but that is a great title!
3. Werewolf Woman (1976)
This is an Italian film, starring Annik Borel as a woman who thinks that she’s a werewolf. And, depending on which version of this film that you see, she might be right.
4. An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Meanwhile, back in London, a young American backpacker discovers why American tourists are not universally beloved in Europe. They have a bad habit of wandering out to the moors on nights when there is a full moon. This classic film features perhaps the best scene to ever take place in a sleazy porno theater.
5. The Howling (1981)
1981 was a good year for werewolf films.
6. An American Werewolf in Paris (1997)
It’s not a very good film but …. hey! Look! Paris!
Have a howlingly good Halloween, everyone!
