A classic

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.

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

"Re-watch - Oct. 31st I mentioned Wolf Man was a guest, right? OK, good, I thought so. After Night of the Demons I took a dinner break and then dove back in to wrap up my Halloween night. And given the fact that everything prior to this film was good but not outstanding it was nice to end on a pair of very strong films. Werewolf is, of course, perfect. Not a single frame of film is wasted here, the characters are interesting and amusing, the humor is wisely used to provide relief while not being"

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Few films balance horror and comedy with the deft assurance of An American Werewolf in London. Two American teenagers hike across Yorkshire moors and right into a tooth-and-claw encounter that converts one (Griffin Dunne, inadvertent star of the show) into a particularly talkative corpse and the other (David Naughton) into a werewolf. What follows is a series of loosely associated set pieces that alternate between the blackly hilarious and the disturbingly violent. John Landis plumbs the Freudia"

"John Landis does the impossible by mixing comedy with horror and making it stick. Two Americans on the Yorkshire Moors, are attacked, leaving one dead and the other badly injured. Hospitalised in London, he soon discovers that they were attacked by a werewolf and the line is still in him. The transformation sequence is still incredible considering it wasn't computer generated. One moment your laughing, the next screaming. A bona fide classic."

"11.4 Useimmissa kauhukomedioissa on suurimpana ongelmana se, että onnistuneen hauskuttelun lisäksi säikyttely tuntuu pakostakin laimeammalta. Näin ei kuitenkaan ole tässä John Landisin kasariklassikossa, jonka groteski ja näyttävä transformaatiokohtaus on kestänyt aikaa yllättävän hyvin. Rick Bakerin näyttävät tehosteet ovat hyvin tunnistettavissa vuotta myöhemmin julkaistuun Michael Jacksonin Thriller-musiikkivideoon nähden. Paljon tässä oli hyvää, kuten Englannin sumuise"
