New Lycans versus the best transformations ever

The third in the underwhelming Underworld series of films, Rise of the Lycans , hits US cinemas on 23 January, and to celebrate SCI FI Wire is contrasting the Lycans with the best werewolf transformations ever.

Their list:
The Wolf Man (1941)
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
The Howling (1981)
Teen Wolf (1985)
Van Helsing (2004)
The Wolf Man (2009)

The new Underworld movie is said to boast more werewolves on screen simultaneously than ever before. But how does it stack up against classics like An American Werewolf in London? The SCI FI Wire list includes videos, so head over and take a look . What do you reckon? And will you go and see Underworld 3 even though Kate Beckinsale's not in this one?
