The similarities to John Landis's classic An American Werewolf in London stop at the title. The follow-up has none of the chilling effects, the acting's horrendous (even the luminous Delpy seems to be sleepwalking through the film) and the story's a by-the-books clunker. Traveling in Paris with a group of friends to score some cheap thrills and sex, Andy (Scott) saves a woman (Delpy) mid-flight in her suicide leap from the Eiffel Tower. He tracks her down, only to discover she's a werewolf who was bitten by her thirsty boyfriend. Plenty of carnage and anti-climactic metamorphoses follow.
