American Werewolf in London, An (SE)
David Kessler (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are travelling through Europe when they come to a small town in the English countryside nearby London. The people there are all but friendly and both guys decide to go further eventhough it’s night time. A little later, they get overtaken by a wolf-life creature that kills Jack while David gets saved by the villagers who finally decided to save the travellers. A little later, David wakes up in a London hospital where he meets a beautiful nurse (Jenny Agutter) with whom he falls in love.
However, as full moon gets closer, David starts to notice some changes on himself and realises he’s turning into a werewolf.
Sound and Vision:
The 16:9 anamorphic screen and Dolby Digital 5.1 do a good job although it still shows that you’re watching an old movie.
Actor commentary, Behind-the-scenes documentary, interviews with both John Landis and Rick Baker, documentary on the special effects, photo gallery, comparation between storyboard and the movie, and 4 pages on the film production are the extra’s that come with this DVD. Quite good and defenitely a minimum for a cult-classic like this.
An American Werewolf in London is a horror cult-classic and although it can look a bit outdated compared to modern day movies, the 20th anniversary edition DVD is defenitely worth checking out if you’re into Horror.
