John Landis, at age 31, was coming off Animal House (the highest grossing comedy in the history of Hollywood at the time) and The Blues Brothers when he revised a script he conceived at age eighteen. One of the last, and greatest, examples of classic Hollywood horror, An American Werewolf in London is infused with a lifetime of lessons Landis learned from his own cinephilia. Highlights include a killer soundtrack, including “Bad Moon Rising,” “Blue Moon,” and “Moondance”; a beautiful, genuinely melancholy conclusion; and a rampaging attack through Piccadilly Circus, following a particularly vocal lupine transformation in an X-rated movie house showing, naturally, See You Next Wednesday.
