An American Werewolf in London [Blu-ray]

One of the greatest directors of the 1980s, John Landis (The Blues Brothers, Trading Places), expertly combines macabre horror with dark humor in the lycanthropic classic, An American Werewolf in London. American tourists David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are savaged by an unidentified vicious animal whilst hiking on the Yorkshire Moors. David awakes in a London hospital to find his friend dead and his life in disarray. Retiring to the home of a beautiful nurse (Jenny Agutter, Walkabout) to recuperate, he soon experiences disturbing changes to his mind and body, undergoing a full-moon transformation that will unleash terror on the streets of the capital… An American Werewolf in London had audiences howling with laughter and recoiling in terror upon its cinema release. Landis’ film has gone on to become one of the most important horror films of its decade, rightly lauded for its masterful set-pieces, uniquely unsettling atmosphere and Rick Bakers’ truly ground-breaking, Oscar-winning special makeup effects.

I watched it again just recently and I have to say it still really holds up as one of the great werewolf movies of all time I remember the first time I saw American Werewolf in London back when I was much younger. I watched it again just recently and I have to say it still really holds up as one of the great werewolf movies of all time.

Since childhood (I am 25 now) I have been a huge fan of the horror genre and particularly enjoy horror films from the 80s and prior. Years later I watched it again and I am absolutely blown away at how amazing the special effects were and how truly realistic they…

American horror classic that might be lost on a digitally-minded audience. Three stars on my scale means an average movie that you wouldn’t regret paying for at the cinema.That said, this is a classic horror movie and was well made for its time. In our age of CGI and digital effects, it’s very easy to dismiss older films as being “hokey” or “unrealistic,” but there is also something visceral to them. American Werewolf in London is one of those films that has enough corny sensibility that it doesn’t take itself too seriously while at the…
