An American Werewolf in London is the best werewolf movie I have yet to come across. It blends comedy, horror, sex, terrific in-camera effects and make-up to create a fantastic film. An American Werewolf is over 30 years old and it still has the best werewolf transition sequence of all time. The music Landis uses is fun and keeps the film lively, while the relationship between David and the nurse Alex fulfills every American male’s hot foreign girl fantasy. The story doesn’t give you that typical happy ending either which is perfect, and it doesn’t get too long for the horror and suspense to get dull.

This is one of my favorites and one I enjoy each and every time. It’s also awesome that the two movies John Landis directed before this were Animal House (1978) and The Blues Brothers (1980).

God Bless America
