This week's subject is The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. The film is of course a remake of The Wolfman (1941), starring Lon Chaney Jr., which immortalized the werewolf legend on film.
An emphasis on character and plot over special effects usually results in a superior film. But with a horror picture, you occasionally do have to deliver the horror goods. Joe Johnston's The Wolfman fails on both grounds.
