The Comic Critic Reviews The Wolfman (2010)

I don’t blame Universal for wanting to reinvigorate our interest in its classic horror holdings, but it is surely no easy task. The remake of The Wolfman is an admirable effort. If anything, I wish it had contained even more elements of the original movie. And I have to confess my fond memories of watching the original and my enjoyment in taking my dad to see the remake have strongly colored my impressions and judgment. I had a great time, but does that mean it is a great film? All I know is that for the rest of my life, I will doubly enjoy viewing both versions.
