An American Werewolf in London
Short plot summary

Two Americans, on hiking tour of Europe, stop off in northern England. One of the guys gets killed by a werewolf, the other (David) gets injured.

The dead guy comes back to tell David, our hero, that he is a werewolf but David doesn't want to believe it.

Then the killing starts...

What our panel of critics thought

"A movie filled with naked Americans running through forests and zoos."

"1970's naked shower fun at a time in history when in England you were lucky to get a dribble from your shower - power showers (like the Americans have) came later (and never in rooms that a nurse could afford). I want my money back."

"This movie includes my favorite moment of cross dressing mayhem in the 1970's."

Please tell me the ending or plot overview if necessary

David changes into a werewolf at night. He kills people and then wakes up, naked, in different places.

David dies after changing back from being a werewolf after blood filled chase through the streets of London.

Dr Bravisimo-Encore II Movie Review

My oh my, a strangely compelling attempt to get at ones chuckle muscles and horror glands all for the price of a single ticket! Thankfully, the two genre types are kept separate.

A very watchable movie, in which one is taken on a scurrilous ride of a werewolfian rampage across London.

Whilst the movie is geographically challenged - it starts off in northern England and then switches to any old hospital in London - to non locals this faux pas can be put to the back of ones screaming, horror filled, chuckling mouths.

For this movie is filled with moments of comic 'don't look behind you' terror, interspersed with a comfortable Sunday morning feeling which pleases its audience who cannot help but return for repeated viewing.

Quotable quotes (real)

David you are a werewolf, kill yourself.

Other comments

Another borderline classic/popcorn movie, included in this strand as it is a favorite of the reviewer.

This movie is above average for its genuine warmth - we really care for the characters when not doing wolfy things. That it is filmed on location in London is a bonus.
