What's Better?: The French Lieutenant's Woman or An American Werewolf in London?




To begin round three of this Internet diversion, I give you John Landis versus John Fowles. A literary adaptation versus a horror flick. Oddly enough, both films are listed in IMDB.com as having been released in 1981.

What's Better? The French Lieutenant's Woman or An American Werewolf in London?

American Werewolf.

I definitely have an opinion on this one:

The French Lieutenant's Woman is one of the very few movies to successfully capture the spirit of the book although significantly different from it.

American Werewolf can't even claim Warren Zevon's "Werewolves on London" in its soundtrack. Even if the movie inspired the song, still not good enough.

Well, you've got to know that in the Truffin household this is no contest. In fact, I think I just saw parts of the French Lieutenant's Woman smeared across the wall while an eerie howling sound came from the roof.

Besides, Americans trounce the Frenchies any day! (or at least when the Patriot Act Police are watching).
