** AssholeVictim: The sadistic [[HerrDoktor Dr. Hoenneger] and his equally cruel orderlies certainly fit this trope. The hunters slain by Lawrence during his first rampage might fit as well, considering their earlier attempt to lynch him (though in light of the fact that he [[JerkassHasAPoint actually did become a ravening monster under the full moon, their conduct might have been justified). [[spoiler: Sir John counts, too, though he's less of an asshole victim and more an asshole losing combatant in a fight.]]

** The 2010 version explores a very different side of the relationship between Lawrence and his father as well as the psychological aspects the 1941 version wanted to do intentionally.

**No matter what Lawrence was wearing previously, the Wolfman is always in the same clothes post-transformation. This was the case in the original as well, and something that fans liked to poke fun at.

**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.

**You could try to spin it as a BittersweetEnding. At least the true monster in all of this, [[spoiler:John Talbot]], is dead.

**To really drive the point home, the original film has a total body count of four, [[spoiler: including Bela and Larry, our two werewolves]]. In the remake, over a dozen people die before Lawrence is even bitten, and by the time the credits roll, there are probably upwards of thirty people dead, at least.

The remake of ''Film/TheWolfMan1941'', released in 2010 and starring Benicio del Toro. 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.
