An American Werewolf London

Director: John Landis Run Time: 107 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 1981

Starring:  Griffin Dunne, David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, Joe Belcher

A backpacking trip through England gets hairy in John Landis’ AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON.

With amazing special effects and slight comedic undertone, An American Werewolf in London is a perfect John Landis movie that nearly defies genre. It very quickly begins with a wolf attack on two American college friends, David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), who are backpacking through the UK. Jack dies while David wakes up alive in a London hospital with some mysterious marks. Haunted by those who have been killed by the werewolf and by some strange new nocturnal activities, David realizes that he is now the werewolf and the only way to end the cycle, is to end his life. Beware the Moors!
