An American Werewolf in London VHS

A great classic werewolf movie.
Remember back in the early 1980s when special-effects makeup artists were tripping over themselves to create the next big effect? The Howling boasted a fantastic werewolf transformation scene courtesy of makeup wizard Rob Bottin. Then along came Bottin's mentor, Rick Baker, with his own spectacular effects in this popular horror comedy directed by John Landis. An American Werewolf in London is more of a makeup showcase than a truly satisfying movie, but the film is effectively moody when David Naughton discovers that a wolf attack has turned him into a bloodthirsty lycanthrope. Jenny Agutter plays his love interest (watch out, he bites!), and who can forget Griffin Dunne as Naughton's best friend, an undead corpse who progressively rots away as the plot unfolds? All things considered, it's easy to see why An American Werewolf in London became a modern horror favorite. --Jeff Shannon

With many memorable movie moments, this film makes my Top 100 American Made Films. Unfortunately, the attention to pointless detail and ensuing pace hurt the films watchability. Soooo, unlike Jack (the doomed hiking buddy, whose spirit, following the death of David, is freed from limbo) American Werewolf in London will remain in cinematic limbo; a film that resides somewhere between Heaven and Hell.
