  • An American Werewolf in London 1981

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2013

    John Landis recreates a terrific eerie atmosphere in the dark moors of Wales and moves it down to London without losing the film's credibility. I was afraid that the werewolf would turn out to be clumsy and plastic but fortunately this was not the case largely thanks to the special effects.

    Essentially the ending is great. No prolonged outro'ing or other nonsense. Clean cut and off to a couple of beers. That a boy, John!
