With an ingenious script, engaging characters, nerve-shredding suspense, genuinely frightening set-pieces and laugh-out-loud funny bits An American Werewolf in London is a prime candidate for the finest horror-comedy ever made. Americans David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are backpacking in northern England when Jack is killed by a wild beast and David is bitten. Back in London David finds himself falling in love with a nurse, Alex (played with winning charm by Jenny Agutter), and turning into a werewolf. Adding to his problems, an increasingly decomposed Jack keeps coming back from the dead, and he is not a happy corpse. The Oscar winning make-up and transformation scenes still look good and rather than send itself up Werewolf plays its horror seriously, the laughs coming naturally from the surreal situation. Naughton is engagingly confused and disbelieving, desperately coping with the ever more nightmarish world, while Landis delivers one absolutely stunning dream sequence, an unbearably tense hunt on the London Underground and a breathtaking finale. Gory, erotic, shocking and romantic, this unforgettable horror classic has it all. Tom Holland's Fright Night (1985) remixed the formula with vampires, as did Landis himself in Innocent Blood (1992). A disappointing sequel, An American Werewolf in Paris, followed in 1997. --Gary S DalkinSee all Product description

I have had many copies of this film but keep lending it out to friends to encourage them to become as big a fan as me, woops!
I was very pleased to find this film at such a cheap price, and the availability of Prime was an added extra.
Product itself was the same old amazing movie but had an added special edition disc which I haven't had before.
The film isn't scary, it has a couple of jumpy scenes but it's more gorey. But it's an absolute classic which everyone should see and as for the soundtrack.. one of the best!
Highly recommend this film.
Very atmospheric. It is a classic movie which was well ahead of its time. One of my favourites. I watched it, then gave it to one of my brothers- the one who is deaf, because it is a very visual film with a lot of action to entertain someone who is deaf. It would be nice if he could hear the groovy soundtrack!
In fact , it is so "good" ( what " Bad Moon rising"?) that I am going to buy it again- only this time, I am NOT going to give it away!
