As has been documented, werewolf stories are my favorites of this type of monster film. Therefore reaching the defining lycanthrope movie was exciting for me.
On being the one that starts it all:
Me- *thoughts* "I always forget Bela Lugosi is in this... where he plays "Bela." I'm such a fool. He's so good. Dracula isn't even his best role and that's what most people only know him from. I always forget Ralph Bellamy is in this too. One of the down sides of being married to me is:
The only way I could tell Rosa where she'd seen this actor (with an illustrious, six decade career) was referencing the "Titan Condoms" sketch in Amazon Women on the Moon.
On involvement in the story:
*Rosa is texting*
*Bela becomes agitated and leaves*
Rosa- "Uh oh. He’s the wolf!"
*the wolf attacks*
On the reveal of Larry's newly hairy feet:
Wait, doesn't he turn during the full moon? It's not the full moon."
Me- "These movies are where they defined all that.
They made the full moon part up after this one."
Rosa- "So he just changes every night?
What good is everything I learned about this if it's before the stuff I learned."
On Larry's first full attack:
Rosa- "Is he eating them?"
Me- "Yes, they do that."
But no one said, *wistfully* 'It was all true'."
"The way you walked was thorny, through no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil, the river enters the sea, so tears run to a predestined end."
