On the strength of his Hitchcockian-thriller debut, Mute Witness, writer-director Anthony Waller was hired to direct this belated sequel to the 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London, but lycanthropy in the City of Light just ain't what it used to be. The movie offers plenty of gruesome makeup and special wolf-transformation effects, and there are some effectively spooky moments in the plot involving an underground population of hungry Parisian werewolves. One of them is seductively played by Julie Delpy, who is rescued from attempted suicide by an American tourist (Tom Everett Scott, from That Thing You Do!) but ultimately can't hide her dual identity when darkness falls and the full moon shines. The movie begins well, but gradually succumbs to nonsense and mayhem, prompting critic Roger Ebert to observe that "here are people we don't care about, doing things they don't understand, in a movie without any rules." In other words, you'd have to be a die-hard horror buff to give this one the benefit of the doubt. --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sequel?
Wherever I look at reviews of this film on the internet, I always find one line 'Not as good as the original'. When compared to An American Werewolf In London, there are too few similarites to link the films for it to be a fair comparison. When you watch the film as a stand alone movie it's awesome. There are some great special effects (I particularly like the idea of two werewolves fighting), and a brilliant soundtrack which is also worth buying.

The plot however is nothing too spectacular, but it can be forgiven because the films content is so good, and it contains some great acting from Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do!, Boiler Room), Julie Delpy (ER), Vince Vieluf (Rat Race, Grind)and Pierre Cosso (Not a household name, but he certainly deserves to be).

Basically, three Amrerican friends visit Paris as part of their 'Daredevil Tour' and after sneaking to the top of the Eiffel Tower after hours, Andy (Everett Scott) stops the mysterious Serafine (Delpy) from commiting suicide. But when he tries to get involved with her he gets caught up in an underground group of werewolves lead by the sinister skinheaded Claude (Cosso).

Overall this film is unmissable if you're into this kind of thing, but it does have mixed opinions so you may want to look into it further before buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars An American Classic
This film is a sequel to "An American Werewolf in London," a wonderful, but extremely thin movie. I think this one is infinitely better than the original. The bad guys are more charasmatic, the love story is deeper, and the main character has many more layers. The special effects are super and the script is well written. This is one of my favorite horror movies of all time.
Comedy in a horror is done wrong in a LOT of cases, but not in this case. The main character is haunted by the ripped up corses of the people he killed as a werewolf. One of them is a beautiful girl, and she's... So she spends her time on camera trying all kinds of ways to trick him into killing himself or to get him killed.
Good flick. Buy it today!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good
I thought it was good, but I have never seen the first one(american werewolf in London) I dont see how you guys didnt like it. the acting was a little iffy but still a good movie. thought the fx was good, alittle romance, some comedy, some horror, but whateber

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
This is a terrible movie and it's a shame it's even associated with one of my all time favorites, An American Werewolf in London. The animation here is novice, the acting is bad, the script is silly. Overdone, overproduced, overkill. Skip this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars A pathetic attempt at a "Sequel"
This movie is pathetic. you could never compare this to the classic an american werewolf in london, it's just not possible. i only saw it once & that's enough for me. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars GUILTY PLEASURE
Bill Pullman stars as a cocky, self-assured federal judge-to-be who seems to get away with murder..or does he? Pullman takes his secretary out, and in a fit of drunken stupor, rapes her. She threatens to expose him; he decides to hire someone to kill her. Director Anthony Waller keeps the pace a little slow, but does manage some great camera angles and a few plot twists to save the day. Devon Sawa, Gabrielle Anwar, Joanne Whalley and Angela Featherstone provide good support and the ending is a real doozy!
A nice change of pace mystery.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
I think this film is one of the best films Devon Sawa has ever appeared in. I will admit the beginning is pretty boring, but as the film goes on, the better it gets. It's all about a lawyer, Callum Crane (Bill Pullman) who only cares about himself and his career and a young boy, Nathan Corrigan (Devon Sawa) who has just got out of jail and begins looking for his real father who just so happens to be Callum. On a one off date with his secretary, Sophie (Gabrielle Anwar), Callum gets very drunk, and rapes her. She then files a lawsuit against him after he fires her and gets promoted to be a judge. Callum hires Nathan after he saves him from being mugged by two thugs in a carpark to kill her. Nathan gets $5.000, a photo and an address of where Sophie lives, but throws it away, only to be found by his pal, Leo (Jaimz Woolvett) who owes money to someone. When he hears there's another $25.000 in the bag for killing Sophie, he sets out to find her...
Very good film which I recommend if you want to be in suspense!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pullman pulls average movie into entertainment
Actor Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping) gets past the average acting of the younger stars in "The Guilty" to make a pretty good suspense/murder mystery. Too much airtime was given to the younger actors which is always a mistake when seasoned talent is also used. Afterall, it's Mr. Pullman's name and talent that makes viewers want to see the movie. It's murder with a twist and a moral: Don't get caught up with Generation X.

4-0 out of 5 stars Indeed, a very good thriller !
you will be surprised with this low budget, low production company, movie. a nice, well written, and wonderful direction,
The Guilty is a good choice for rental, and even buying. Trust me...i trusted, and was not dissapointed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Everyone loses
The only performance I enjoyed was from Devan Sawa (Final Destination). Anwar's character is first raped, then killed. Pullman's character is unsympathetic. Although I enjoyed the director teasing me with the prospect of Anwar undressing in her apartment. But definitely not a feel-good film. ... Read more
