An American Werewolf In London

synopsis


David Naughton and Jenny Agutter star in writer/director John Landis' classic cult black comedy. American backpackers David Kessler (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) take off for a three month European jaunt. Walking in the desolate English countryside, they come across some locals who give them chilling words of advice: "Keep off the road and keep clear of the moors" and "Beware of the moon." The boys set off into the darkness and hear a terrifying howl from across the moors, unaware that they are being stalked by a mythical beast with a taste for blood. Those who are killed by this creature become the undead, roaming the earth throughout eternity, but anyone who escapes with his life has a different fate in store...

A horror film with likeable characters!

These days the zombie, vampire and werewolf films are all one and the same. They may impress with their mind-blowing special effects or neo-gothic production design, but the real substance- story and character - is missing. While An American Werewolf in London is not a masterpiece, you don't hate the characters and actually find some of their banter amusing (the acting is fairly good). This makes the film far more engaging. The extra offerings of incredible puppetry/animatronics (so much more juicy than CGI) and lots of gore just make the film all the better.
