american werewolf in londonTwo friends, David and Jack, go to London.  Jack is attacked and killed by a werewolf and David gets attacked, but survives.  After that he spends time in the hospital recovering, where he meets Alex (Jenny Agutter.)  He ends up staying at her place for a while, when he sees his friend Jack again, except this time Jack is a member of the undead and is kind of haunting David, but it’s quite funny.  At first David doesn’t believe that he’s a werewolf, but he soon realizes he is when he turns into one and ravages through the town.  This film is mostly known for it’s transforming from man to werewolf special effects.

This movie is a great werewolf movie made in the early 80’s.  And it’s far better then its new sequel that came out a few years ago.  This one doesn’t use a computer made werewolf like its sequel does.  There is a decent amount of gore in this movie.   In my opinion the ending is the best part of the film, well the last 30 minutes or so when the werewolf is attacking everyone.  When I first saw this film I thought it was rather slow at first, but after another viewing I noticed that it is very well paced.   I highly recommend this werewolf movie to anyone who is a horror fan.  I give it an 8 out of 10.
