Synopsis

For my birthday, Grandma sent me a crystal globe of the city where she lives. “If you look carefully, maybe you can see me,” she wrote. Late that night, I woke to find a full moon glowing in a starry sky. “To Grandma’s,” I shouted.

So begins a boy’s search for his grandmother as he is transported on a magical journey through nighttime New York City. The globe/moon pulls him along to sweeping vistas. From the spiraling towers of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, to the grand lions on the steps of the public library, to the heights of the Chrysler Building and other wondrous sights, our hero encounters the city’s jeweled architecture and many delightful denizens–arriving just in time for a huge celebration atop a famous green lady.

Examiner

During all this craziness that happens and while Marlo slowly accepts his feelings for David, he is also quite jealous which is well founded, because David is a well-known playboy in the vampire/werewolf world.

Entertainment Weekly

Many werewolf movies came before it and even more have been made since, but John Landis' giddy, gory 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London remains the lycanthropic gold standard.

The Columbus Dispatch

The big final skit, set at a high-school dance for monsters, is a goofy delight, with an unexpected take on the Twilight triangle and a scene-stealing turn by Brandon Anderson.

Time Out New York

A low-budget comedy-drama, slow to start, in which Masterson's uncinematic direction, and first-time screenwriter Bill Bozzone's reliance on characterisation, reveal their shared theatrical backgrounds.
