The Immortal Saga Of The Wolf Man

This is an awesome documentary hosted by John Landis (Who knows a thing or two about Werewolves and Wolfmen) concerning not only the making of the classic Universal Monsters film but some of the history of Lycanthropy, as well as other films that have dealt with the subject matter. Make sure though you’ve seen the original 1941 Wolf Man before watching this for there are SPOILERS aplenty contained within.

  1. Oddly enough, this is the 2nd time in a week that I have heard someone have a strong negative reaction to John Landis. Am I missing something?

  2. I found this bit of information last night on IMDB, thought it was kind of funny, and it obviously ties in with John Landis. There is a connection between Animal House and Twilight Zone: The Movie:

    “Mention is made of Lieutenant Neidermeyer getting “fragged” by his own troops. This was the fate given to Neidermeyer in the ending of Animal House (1978), also directed by John Landis.”
