So you take a classic 1941 horror movie and remake it.  What do you expect, a simple remake along the lines of the original, with a simple plot about a monster and love.  Do you reboot it, make it 2010, with a lot more in it, and make it nothing like the original except for the name?  I think most would go with the first one, however after seeing Paramount's attempt at reviving classic horror, I might have liked the high budget reboot instead.  

The Wolfman was quite a painful experience, and I am not talking about the excessive gore and blood that was drenched across the screen, I am talking about the extremely thin plot, and horribly boring horror movie experience.  It seemed like everyone that was part of this movie wanted to go with the classic horror feel of the original Wolfman, except make it a lot bloodier.  It made for a movie that felt weak, empty and resorting to cheap tricks to try to scare the audience, an audience that has had 70 years to evolve from the original release.  I was bored and didn't feel scared or jumped once during the whole 2 hours and 5 minutes this movie ran, when the movie ended, someone next to me got up and said, "That was one of the worst movies I have ever seen."  I am not going to go as far as to say one of the worst, but I am going to say that no one here should go see this movie in the theater, on DVD, HBO or on Sunday afternoon on TBS, unless you are looking for one of the least scary horror movies ever made to fall asleep to.
