We need more werewolf movies in cinema.
Perhaps it's safe to say that vampires are well and truly out of fashion now. Most of us can't even think about 'Twilight' without cringing. And yet, their furry counter-parts - the humble werewolves - are still being shunned in favour of ghosts, poltergeists and zombies. What is this fascination with the undead?
Besides the classic horrors of early cinema (namely 'The Wolf Man'), there have been very few decent notable werewolf flicks - and by that we mean films that don't also feature vampires. 'Underworld' and 'Van Helsing', for example, don't count.

From epilepsy to cancer - these stars are battling with their health.
Pamela Anderson has revealed to her fans that she is finally cured of Hepatitis C, something that she contracted back in 2002 allegedly from her former husband Tommy Lee. She's well-known as being a total health freak with her vegan, all-fresh lifestyle - so it's huge news to hear her health has gone up another level.
Pamela Anderson is finally cured of Hepatitis C
The model and actress revealed the news on Instagram, alongside a prayer that it be made more widely available to other sufferers. Anderson isn't the only celebrity who's spent a lot of her life with a chronic illness, however, and there's still plenty of famous faces who are living with health issues.

Back To The Future Day was on Wednesday (October 21st 2015) but people are still celebrating the legacy of this era-defining movie and stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd even reunited as Marty McFly and Doc on the latest episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'. Needless to say, they were pretty disappointed with the real 2015.
Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson were re-united for the film's 30th anniversary
So we don't have hoverboards, flying cars or self-tying sneakers in 2015 as opposed to what 1989's 'Back To The Future II' would've had us believe, but it's still a common agreement that technology has advanced a tremendous amount in the last thirty years, right? Well, Marty and Doc don't think so. When their time-travelling DeLorean landed in the middle of Jimmy Kimmel's talk show last night (October 22nd 2015), they were amazed at just how little the world had changed.
The star spoke at a special screening to celebrate Back to the Future Day
Almost everybody celebrated Back to the Future Day yesterday (Wed) and there was not a single fan of the film trilogy surprised at the big outpouring of love for Marty McFly and the Doc. There was one person slightly bemused by the film’s popularity, however, and that person was Michael J Fox.
The cast of Back to the Future celebrated their special day
Speaking on the red carpet at the event last night (Wed) that celebrated October, 21 2015 - the day Marty travels to in Back to the Future II - Fox admitted the past few days had been a whirlwind.

When Dr. Emmett Brown gets trapped in a Western world in 1885, it's up to Marty to rescue him when he learns of his untimely death. It isn't long before he runs into Biff's ancestor Buford, however, who doesn't exactly make it easy for the pair to get home. Plus, the DeLorean is out of gas which means they can't accelerate to the required speed anyway to travel forward in time. They have an idea, though, involving the use of a rail spur and a train to push them to the right speed, but before they can implement the plan Buford attempts to force Marty into a duel. And after Doc has fallen in love with a beautiful 19th century lady named Clara and been subsequently dumped after revealing his true origin, he's not in the best of moods to help them finally get home either.
Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown re-unite for more adventures, but this time Doc is looking to the future rather than the past. He encourages both Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer to accompany him to 2015 and help out their future children. However, things take a shaky turn when Marty decides to buy a sports almanac in a bid to get rich through betting. Unfortunately, their journey to the future has been witnessed by Biff, who manages to steal the almanac and give it to his 1955 self. When Marty and Doc return to a dystopian 1985 they most certainly don't recognise, they are forced to go back to the past to rectify the situation - and prevent Biff from ruining their futures.
Marty McFly is an ordinary high school teenager, with a passion for music and a talent for skateboarding - not to mention a beautiful girlfriend named Jennifer. However, his parents have it less easy; his father George lacks confidence and so is easily bullied by his boss Biff, while his mother spends her days drowning her sorrows and getting seriously unhealthy. Soon Marty meets an ageing scientist named Doc, who has built a time-machine into a DeLorean. But when the pair run into some trouble, Marty is forced to escape in the vehicle and winds up in 1955 - the year his parents first got together, despite them being leagues apart. Now not only has Marty got to find the younger Doc to help him get Back To The Future, but he also has the task of uniting his parents so that he eventually gets born.
