**The best horror film of the eighties**
This is a gem, it really is. Alternately amusing and horrific – John Landis plays our emotions like a fiddle here. He is pulling all the strings and we are uncertain as to which string he is going to pull next.
From the eerie Yorkshire countryside of the opening scenes through David’s _awful_ nightmares in hospital to amusing zombie chit chat and finally the climactic slaughter in London – this film never lets up.
How many films will you find Kermit the frog sharing a scene with throat slicing, machine gun wielding mutants dressed as Nazis?
– Potential Kermode
“Beware the moon, lads.”
Still frightening and funny 38 years later.
The transformation scene was absolutely incredible, but also really painful. You literally hear every bone crack in his body, and all his organs reshaping and shifting. No other werewolf movie has topped that scene and never will. The song Bad Moon Rising is the icing on the cake.
Rick Baker make-up work is masterful. He’s the real beast here.
Still Funny & Frightening After All These Years
Here’s a film that never fails to entertain, year after year. It’s almost a quarter of a century old but hasn’t become dated and the special effects, which were astounding in its day, are still good. Director John Landis is so good at making entertaining movies. This is one of his best.
The appeal to this film is the combination of horror, suspense, action and humor. The latter actually is the key ingredient because this can become a downright scary movie. The levity here and there is welcome relief. There is just the right amount of contrast between horror and comedy.
For parents wanting to know, there also is a fair amount of rough language and there two sex scenes, one as part of the story and one “on screen” in a porn- movie theater where the two male leads meet late in the story.
Jenny Agutter is the love interest in here, a very pretty woman whom Americans audiences aren’t that familiar with. It isn’t just her: neither of the two leading (American) male actors in this popular movie ever became stars, either.
An entertaining but silly sequel came out almost two decades later, “An American Werewolf in Paris.” I own both movies but much prefer this one.
Terrifying & Funny.
An American Werewolf in London is a 1981 horror comedy film written and directed by John Landis. An international co-production of the United Kingdom and the United States, the film stars David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, and Griffin Dunne. The film’s plot follows two American backpackers, David and Jack, who are attacked by a creature while traveling in England, causing David to question whether he will become a werewolf under the next full moon.
After watching an American Werewolf in London for the first time I found the film to be a clever mixture of comedy and horror which succeeds in being both funny and scary, The film possesses an overriding eagerness to please that prevents it from becoming off-putting. It delivers a good share of scares and dark laughs. Some of the special effects are a little creaky now, but the snap of Landis’s editing and the razor’s-edge balance of horror and comedy are still fresh. The metamorphoses into the werewolf scenes are spectacular and the beast’s rampage through Piccadilly Circus is marvellous. Splendid gory fun. It feels increasingly like a symbol of traveller abroad alienation-what trying to live in a place that isn’t home can feel like: confusing, rageful, even physically debilitating.
