 Case: In "An American Werewolf In London ' two young travelers are attacked by a strange creature – something like a monstrous Wolf-in the English countryside. One of them is infected by the beast and is to be transformed into werewolf terrorizing then London.

What to prwtoanaferei for this classic horror film … In the early 80 's the Director John Landis (The Blues Brothers, Animal House) chose to do something different and the result was this film-dynamite that was a great box office success and at the same time it took the minds once and for all!

The film begins in particular atmospheric with American tourists David and Jack to soylatsaroyn in a magnificent English countryside. During the night they meet a strange pub with even more eccentric regulars. Will not stay for long, however, since the questions are "annoying" and realize that the climate does not lift them. Then while walking through the unworldly "swamps" are attacked by a mysterious monster that resembles a wolf. The Jack brutally murdered by the beast while David saves in spite of hair and heavily injured, survives by locals. The young American awakens in a hospital in London to see that his life has changed completely. Mysterious nightmares and strange "warning" visits from the dead friend bedevil him constantly. Soon we will have a full moon and David will never be the same anymore!

"An American Werewolf In London" combines horror, gore, lykanthrwpia and comedy with virtuosity and perfectly balanced way winning from the first moment the viewer's sympathy. Central figure is undoubtedly the great David Naughton Topanga the young protagonist with the same name. Next to him stands decently pretty Englishwoman Jenny Agutter (Walkabout) as the nurse who takes care of the physically and mentally injured David and that it won't take much for him to sleep at her house and expected … on her bed! Interesting but definitely subordinate is the presence of dyspistoy physician Dr. Hirsch (John Woodvine) who decides to investigate the attack site near the original pubs while a separate mention should be made to the Jack (Griffin Dune) that the film does not deprive us after his death but the xanaserbirei with the sarabaliasmeni form of ' nekrozwntanoy ' which in every appearance increasingly rot!
The film's pace is fast enough without pointless CRUD, interpretations suggest fully adapted to the climate imikwmiko of the film, and the overall story is well-written.

Horror Trivia

For the more observant there is a cameo appearance of Director in sequences with the chaos caused by the exodus of lykanthrwpoy from the cinema London roads. The Landis is the bearded guy who falls into a showcase after hitting a car.

The film also features beautiful photography, especially in the initial shots of the countryside turned into beautiful Wales while amazing and soundtrack that gives us anebastika pieces from blues scene, jazz fusion and rock, also matching the whole climate. But what stood out more film is the eye-catching effects that gave in "An American Werewolf In London" the Oscar for best makeup for the year 1981. Justified choice would say after monumental scenes like the obsessive metamorphosis of David in front of the astonished eyes of the spectators are among the best we've seen in movies the werewolves with the effect being in very advanced for his age level. In the field of the effects Master Builder Rick Baker did wonders signaling a new era for the genre. In conclusion the "An American Werewolf In London" is a horror movie filled with innumerable good things that charm. For many considered the best movie with Werewolves until our days. The only negative I could find is perhaps too abrupt finish although the wonderful sight that we have hitherto watched erases any complaints. Not the polyskefteste and enjoy this exquisite film, one of the best in the category of werewolves.
