An American Werewolf in London

(1981)

Beware the moon.

Filmmaker John Landis backs up comedies The Blues Brothers and Animal House with this monster movie classic (written when he was just 19-years-old), featuring pre-CGI effects from Rick Baker and equal lashings of terror and humour. Follows a backpacking yank who undergoes a hairy transformation after being mauled by a werewolf on the Yorkshire moors.... More

David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are two American tourists backpacking through the UK when they find themselves at a Yorkshire pub populated by strange locals and ominously called The Slaughtered Lamb. Deciding not to stay there, the pair head off across the moors and are mauled by a large beast. When David emerges from unconsciousness a few weeks later he's told that Jack is dead - so why does he keep appearing to David looking like a reanimated corpse? And what's with all of David's strange new wolfy dreams? As the full moon approaches he's about to live up to the film's title.Hide
