An American Werewolf in London

An American Werewolf in London

Directed by John Landis

In this 1980s horror classic, two men are attacked by a werewolf while on vacation in the English countryside. Jack dies and David is taken to a hospital, where he starts to have visions and dreams in which Jack urges him to kill himself before he transforms into a werewolf. Will he listen? Don't bet on it. Famous for funny films like ANIMAL HOUSE, John Landis wove hilarious bits into the scary story, kicking off the horror-comedy trend that inspired many other directors. Michael Jackson was so impressed he enlisted Landis to helm his famous "Thriller" video. Contains violence and gore.

A horror-comedy that makes for a fun watch. Even if the story doesn't hook you, it is worth the watch for practical effects fans (please stay at least long enough for the transformation sequence!). Must-see if you're a fan of werewolf movies.

One of the first werewolf movies I ever saw and the transformation scene still looks amazing today. The mix of comedy and horror strikes such a perfect balance.

My all-time favorite werewolf movie! It was a real treat to see it on Shudder. Only serves to reinforce my subscription to Shudder.
