1. It pushed the special FX boundaries. The changing of course, but his slowly decaying ghost friend is the highlight of the movie for me.
B. It has permeated into pop culture. Remember that part in BEERFEST, when the guys first started training and Barry Badrinath wakes up, naked in a field, blood all over, and a dead dear next to him . "Oh no, not again!"
I picked two beers to pair with this movie and the first one, Newcastle's Werewolf, is a no brainer and probably the easiest of the two, to find at your local beer store. For this particular pairing it will be easier if:
1. You don't mind that Yorkshire (the setting of the movie) is quite a ways away from Newcastle, the home of the brewery.
2. And, you don't mind that Newcastle is even further away from London.
However, they are both in Northern England and if we can believe in a mythical werewolf then we can also believe that it has a wide territory from which to terrorize foreign backpackers.
The second beer pairing would be my choice, if I could find this beer nearby. You may have trouble tracking this beer down if you don't live in Washington. The label, the name, the werewolf and the fact that it is a pumpkin beer make this the perfect seasonal pairing for his movie.
