'The Wolfman' trailer: Forget the creature, look at those sets!

Maybe the cuddly werewolves from Monday’s New Moon clip weren’t your cup of tea? Then feast your eyes on the new trailer (embedded below) for The Wolfman remake starring Benicio Del Toro. The aspect that actually excites me the most in this trailer is not Del Toro’s beastly transformation, but the film’s atmosphere. I miss the elaborately designed, Gothic-influenced horror films of the 1990s, such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Interview with the Vampire, and Sleepy Hollow, in which the architecture was just as much of a character as the monsters.

As for The Wolfman, its 1880s setting looks splendid, which shouldn’t be a surprise given that the film’s sets were designed by the Oscar-winning Rick Heinrichs (Sleepy Hollow). That should be enough to get my behind in a seat. What about you, PopWatchers?
