* {{Novelization}}: Jonathan Maberry wrote one. It's noteworthy in that the author only had two months to pen the entire thing, yet the book is generally seen as a big improvement over the film. It mostly adheres to the final cut of the movie, with a couple of scenes added (such as deleted scenes) and more fleshed-out characters. There is only one significant alteration: Lawrence figures out who the werewolf on his own and does so earlier on.

The remake of ''Film/TheWolfMan1941'', released in 2010 and starring Creator/BenicioDelToro and Creator/AnthonyHopkins. A PragmaticAdaptation and more of an {{Homage}} to its predecessor, some of the most noticeable differences from the original are that it's now set in [[VictorianBritain 1891 England]] as opposed to [[TheForties 1940s]] Wales, and is also much [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] and more [[BloodierAndGorier violent]] than its counterpart.

** Del Toro's Talbot bears a striking resemblance to OliverReed's Leon from the Film/HammerHorror ''Film/TheCurseOfTheWerewolf.'' And you don't get more Spanish with a name like Benicio del Toro. The idea that love might inhibit the transformation is also from ''Curse''.

* ShoutOutToShakespeare: Quite a few from ''Hamlet'', considering Lawrence is an actor in this version whose most recent play '''was''' ''Hamlet'' and the references and parallels to the play are played pretty creepily in the film. And ''Hamlet'' was famously played by Sir ''[[MeaningfulRename Lawrence]]'' Olivier.

* {{Badass}}: Aberline. But then again, when has Hugo Weaving ever played anything '''but''' a [[Film/VForVendetta bad]][[Film/TheMatrix ass]]?

* EtherealChoir: This ''is'' DannyElfman we're talking about, but it's not used as much as an effect compared to his other scores and is only used in a few scenes.

* PlayingTheHeartStrings: DannyElfman's score definitely makes very good use of the strings. Probably as a subtle ShoutOut to the original score.

** Creator/{{Max Von Sydow}}'s DeletedRole (still present in the director's cut) implies that the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beast_of_G%C3%A9vaudan Beast of Gévaudan]] was a werewolf.

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Subverted. During one of Lawrence's rampages, he chases one of his hunters into a bog. Trapped, the hunter fires his revolver at Lawrence. It doesn't work, and the hunter attempts to shoot himself. Turns out that he spent his six on the beast, and gets graphically decapitated instead.

* FollowTheLeader: Was released to capitalise on the paranormal romance trend started by ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. To be fair, this movie was stuck in DevelopmentHell for a long time. A full treatment had been completed as early as 2006, and the film was originally slated for a 2008 release. In fact, it was pushed back from November 2009 to February 2010 largely because of fear that they could not compete with New Moon.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicSuicide: {{Discussed}} when Lawrence asks [[spoiler: his father]] why he didn't kill himself to prevent anyone else's death when he became a werewolf. However, he couldn't do it even knowing what would happen.
