An American Werewolf in London

October 26, 2013 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


“An American Werewolf in London” (1981)
Directed by John Landis

“Beware the moon, lads.” From an eerie country pub, across the foggy moors and straight into the heart of London’s Piccadilly Circus, director John Landis’ wised-up, suped-up grisly romp through lycanthrope lore remains one of the best, if not the best, werewolf movies of all time. For every jaw-dropping monster effect, courtesy of Rick Baker, there’s an equally memorable, character-driven line—”I didn’t mean to call you a meatloaf, Jack!”—as an American backpacker (James Naughton) falls prey to the beast’s curse.
