With an ingenious script, engaging characters, nerve-shredding suspense, genuinely frightening set-pieces and laugh-out-loud funny bits An American Werewolf in London is a prime candidate for the finest horror-comedy ever made. Americans David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are backpacking in northern England when Jack is killed by a wild beast and David is bitten. Back in London David finds himself falling in love with a nurse, Alex (played with winning charm by Jenny Agutter), and turning into a werewolf. Adding to his problems, an increasingly decomposed Jack keeps coming back from the dead, and he is not a happy corpse. The Oscar winning make-up and transformation scenes still look good and rather than send itself up Werewolf plays its horror seriously, the laughs coming naturally from the surreal situation. Naughton is engagingly confused and disbelieving, desperately coping with the ever more nightmarish world, while Landis delivers one absolutely stunning dream sequence, an unbearably tense hunt on the London Underground and a breathtaking finale. Gory, erotic, shocking and romantic, this unforgettable horror classic has it all. –Gary S Dalkin

A marvellous, pop tragic, serio-comic monster movie, with David Naughton haunted by the chewed-up ghost of Griffin Dunne as he tries to cope with the curse of the werewolf. The pre-CGI set-piece metamorphoses - as Naughton elongates and distorts into lupine form, sprouting hair, teeth and claws - are still amazing.

Writer/director John Landis also throws in American observations on British strangeness (from the unfriendly patrons in the Slaughtered Lamb pub to the dreariness of channel-hopping with three choices), a memorable shower sequence with Jenny Agutter, nightmare Nazis, pointed barbs at the expense of horror film conventions like silver bullets, and a witty assemblage of moon-themed songs (Blue Moon, Bad Moon Rising, Moondance).

Verdict:
Carnivorous lunar activities rarely come any more entertaining than this.
