Cinema: At least two horror movies made in Luxembourg feature in a Total Film Top 50 list… …it’s just a shame that it’s a list for 50 Worst Horror Movies!

Feardotcom and An American Werewolf in Paris feature at 13 and 12 respectively.

Feardotcom was a pretty poor stab at catching on to the zeitgeist of haunted technology, produced by the now defunct Carousel Films. Starring Stephen Dorff and Natascha McElhone it was not well received at a time when The Grudge and The Ring were much better possibilities, but was an early venture into the realms of the sub-genre torture porn that Saw and Hostel would later earn buckets of cash from.

An American Werewolf In Paris, (a Delux Fim production) did it’s best to capture the comedy/horror of the original John Landis classic, but budgetary contstraints were all to obvious to see as Luxembourg’s old-town doubled as Montmatre and FX shoddier than a thousand wobbly sets threatened to tear the whole thing down despire starring Julie Deply.

Total Film does a fine trade in best/worst lists and it’s rare to find Luxembourg produced films within them and even more so to find that they place back to back.

The bods at TF are blissfully unaware of this fact, so bask a while, then enjoy the trailers below.
