Wes Craven tackling a werewolf movie
sounded cool. Craven is the guy
responsible for such horror treats as A
Nightmare on Elm Street and that
Meryl Streep violin thing, so it would seem
hed be a good bet to make the first
decent werewolf flick since An
American Werewolf in London. The
fact that he enlisted that films makeup
man, Rick Baker, to assist on
Cursed was further reason for
excitement. Then the studio started
calling for a PG-13 movie with massive
re-shoots, and everything went to blazes.
The result is a clichéd mess with
goofy-looking werewolves. Shot two years
this film is almost legendary for the
problems it has faced. Production was
shut down, and the movie was almost
entirely redone with a new plot and cast.
The likes of Corey Feldman, Mandy Moore
and Skeet Ulrich ended up on the cutting
room floor, while poor Scott Baio was
reduced to a cameo.
