We don't hear much from John Landis nowadays but, back in the 80's, he was quite a successful director and one of his biggest success was this werewolf flick which has now reached a cult status. First of all, to mix comedy and horror is a tricky challenge and most movies usually fail miserably but Landis did a good job here and sometimes you might wonder if you should be laughing or be horrified b... read more

"An American Werewolf in London" is a overlooked classic of horror that provides laughs and scares and remains fresh upon repeat viewings. Sporting amazing make-up effects by Rick Baker, it also contains a werewolf transformation scene which has to this day not been topped.

Goofball American youths Jack and David (Griffin Dunne & David Naughton) are backpacking in England when th... read more

I have seen hundreds of low ratings on this movie. Which shouldn't be if people actually paid attention to who it's aimed at; The British.
Why are Americans watching this, or any other Nationalities I guess, but I'll tell you now, this isn't a movie for Americans, obviously you get the odd American that appreciates British Cinema, but not many. Americans when they think of werewolf they exp... read more

"John Landis at his goofy, creative doings. I love this movie for the dark humor with dead friend, Jack but obviously, the werewolf transition scene is just so achingly disturbing. I felt like my skin was stretching and for a dental person, the jaw/teeth thing. Ick. • Most well-known scene: David's transition from human to beast. "

" Date: 10/6/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Arrow Video) Re-Watch Note: If I had to pick a favorite Werewolf movie, it would be this movie (The Howling and original Wolfman come pretty close). I always love this movie growing up and it never gets old when revisiting it. I got the Arrow Video Blu-Ray Special edition for Christmas last year and I have saved it for October. The Arrow Video release is perfect after many years of having a mediocre home release. The video and sound quality are fantastic in "

"2.8. Blu-ray Yllätyin, kuinka aidosti hauska tämä olikaan. Käytännön tehosteet ovat kerrassaan upeita. Hienoja kamera-ajoja ja mainiota yksinäisen turistin epävarmuuden kuvausta."
