AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON - REVIEW (31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN #22)

In addition to my personal 31 Days of Horror (movie marathon) I am part of a 31 Days of Halloween (horror movie review series) with my job at MOVIECLIPS. Each day during the month of October we are going to post a two-man conversation/review of a different horror movie. Yours truly will be featured in a few of these. Today David and Zack are discussing John Landis' An American Werewolf in London:


(Curator's Note: On the horror reviews I did not sit in on I am going to be offering "My Take" if I have seen the film in question.)


My Take: Werewolf movies don't get much better than this. And if you contest that claim you really must fill me in on what hidden werewolf masterpiece you've seen that I don't know of. The transformation during "Blue Moon" is one of the quintessential showcases of movie effects. It's unforgettable, but what will likely leave the most lasting impression with you is the film's cold and abrasive finale - not unlike how it begins.

★★★★½
