Yes. It’s true. An American Werewolf in London and The Sixth Sense are tied for 31st on the 31 Scariest Movies of All Time list. And I can’t bitch with either one. You can say what you want about M. Night Shabbadoo, but his first movie idea kicked ass. If by any chance you haven’t seen it, I won’t spoil it for you. But I will say that it has Bruce Willis in it, and that scary kid from the Sixth Sense!
An American Werewolf in London, on the other hand is considered a classic by a lot of people. At first I was going to start complaining about it, but the more I think about it, it really is pretty good. Great music. Zombie Nazis for some reason. Corpses in movie theaters talking to their pals. What’s not to like? And let’s not forget the transformation scene, the thing that people kept yapping about for the next 1o years. Actually, now that I think about it, the transformation scene where Dr. Pepper changes into a wolf is probably the best one ever done. No? Yes? What do you think? You gonna start bitching about science?
Original trailers after the jump.
I hated The Sixth Sense.
…………call johnny rambo.
I liked the Sixth Sense. I thought Donnie Wahlberg did great in it.
I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand……..
I’ve actually seen Sixth Sense but only because it was Bruce Willis.
I see bad movies.
I liked the Sixth Sense, but I wouldn’t call it particularly scary.
American Werewolf, however? One of my all-time favorites. The transformation scene was one of the best ever, especially considering CGI hadn’t been invented yet.
In May I actually did a whole post on the movie, for no apparent reason. (http://darwinfish2.blogspot.com/2010/05/bad-moon-howling.html) My only beef with it is that it never used Zevon’s Werewolves of London in the score.
