Dammit! I was finally, finally going to exercise my rights as tie-breaker!
Last week, I asked you what your favorite werewolf film was. Until last night, there had been a four-way tie: An American Werewolf in London, Teen Wolf, Underworld, and The Wolf Man. But today, somebody in the wee hours of the morning tipped the scales in favor of . . .
The Wolf Man!
I can tell you right now, if I had been the deciding vote, this wouldn’t have won. It’s been about a decade since I last saw it, but when I watched the film, I actively disliked The Wolf Man. Sorry, voters, but it’s easily my least favorite of the films I’ve seen on this list (although, to be fair, I haven’t seen a number of these movies).
Sadly, for me, I have been overruled. Therefore, The Wolf Man takes first, An American Werewolf in London takes second (because that’s the film I would have picked, no question), and Teen Wolf and Underworld tie for third. Do you know, I’ve never seen Teen Wolf? I have a sneaking suspicion that if we had a werewolf at our high school, he wouldn’t have been popular just because he could play basketball. But, you know, maybe. Michael J. Fox is sort of inherently likable.
A vampire basketball star, though . . . that might have been different.
