I can assure you that this is not in the least bit amusing. Gerald Bringsley

As I sit here and watch An American Werewolf in London (1981), I cannot help thinking how amazing this movie is. It’s not over done, the story is solid, and the make-up effects are cool, gory, and gushy. The nightmare sequences add a layer of excitement, as well as show what is happening David Kessler. His dead friend, Jack Goodman, comes to warn him about what he’s becoming, trying to convince him to kill himself.

The transformation is a delight. His reactions to his body shifting is perfect. A strange thing in this movie is the London Zoo scene, not because he’s in the zoo, but for some reason I recall this same scene happening in the Incredible Hulk TV Series (1978), but maybe it happened in both. The humor bits aren’t over done or cheesy, which I enjoy in the right movie, I’m glad they didn’t go over the top with it in this film, it would’ve changed the feel of it completely.

An American Werewolf in London is one of the finest werewolf movies made, I love it, and that is why I give it all 5 Stars!
