    Best wereolf movie ever made

    Just to correct a prior review, you couldn't tell the transformations were computer generated because they weren't! This was made in 1980-81 and there were no CGI effects. Everything you see was done with practical make-up and was actually filmed. The scenes are so good that the Academy of Motion Pictures created a category to recognize achievement in special effects, which they awarded to Rick Baker who is the genius behind these effects. Funny and still scary it is an absolute must see!

    Will Scare Your Pants Off, Mate

    Definitely one of the best werewolf movies ever made, 'American Werewolf in London' is a smashing good time. The transformation scene and the decaying zombie friend are true classics. I also liked the use of Credence Clearwater Revival's 'Bad Moon On The Rise' as part of the soundtrack. Guaranteed to scare you blooming crazy.

    A Must See Werewolf Movie

    This is probably one of my favorite werewolf movies of all time. The werewolf looked very real and I enjoyed the fact that you couldn't tell the transformations of it were computer generated.This beats The Howling.

    All time favorite werewolf movie

    Great special effects and it's not your typical low budget film just like The Howling and their series. I recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a good werewolf movie. It's simply the best.

    The best there is

    The best werewolf movie to date. Sometimes I go straight to the transformation scene because that is my favorite scene! If you're looking for a horror flick, this is for you.

    Welcome To The Slaughted Lamb!

    Director John Landis strays away from the typical straight comedy productions that made him famous to produce a cult classic horror film - The American Werewolf In London. The film is based around two American College friends holidying in England who are attacked by a Werewolf. One dies a savage death, the other (lead actor David Naughton) survives only to have inherited the werewolfs curse and thurst for human blood. Being a huge horror fan i would say that ''Werewolf'' is by far the scariest film i have ever seen. Director Landis delibritly filters the film with scenes of light comedy, but the sheer suspense and gore defietly make this a first class horror flick. The special effects are groundbraking and still look amazing today, there is a great soundtrack to the film as well as very, very errie background music.
