OSCAR® and Saturn award-winner AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON successfully combines horror and comedy in an unforgettable picture.
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON has become a cult classic since its 1981 release. While hiking in England, college students David and Jack come face to face with a werewolf despite receiving warnings not to be outside after dark. Jack is killed but David survives. After waking up in the hospital with a bite wound, David receives a warning from Jack that he will turn into a werewolf during the full moon unless he takes his own life.
“A clever mixture of comedy and horror which succeeds in being both funny and scary, An American Werewolf in London possesses an overriding eagerness to please that prevents it from becoming off-putting.” –Variety Magazine
“Director John Landis here pulls off the difficult trick of revitalising the horror genre while parodying it at the same time.” –Alan Jones, Radio Times. Rated "R" for Sex, Nudity, Violence and Gore
