If you just can’t get enough of Never Cry Werewolf (and Google Analytics says most of you can’t), horroryearbook.com has a brief interview with the film’s director, Brenton Spencer. The interview is largely biographical, with few anecdotes or comments about actual film making, but Spencer does have this to say about selecting an actor to wear a werewolf costume:
If I’ve learned anything in my career it is this; If you are looking to put someone in a Werewolf costume, or any creature costume, use an actor, use an athlete, use a stunt man, but don’t ever use a classical ballet dancer. A grande jette is just not scary!
Thanks for that, Spencer!
