Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

One of the greatest directors of the 1980s, John Landis (The Blues Brothers, Trading Places), expertly combines macabre horror with dark humour in the lycanthropic classic, An American Werewolf in London.

American tourists David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are savaged by an unidentified vicious animal whilst hiking on the Yorkshire Moors. David awakes in a London hospital to find his friend dead and his life in disarray. Retiring to the home of a beautiful nurse (Jenny Agutter, Walkabout) to recuperate, he soon experiences disturbing changes to his mind and body, undergoing a full-moon transformation that will unleash terror on the streets of the capital...

An American Werewolf in London had audiences howling with laughter and recoiling in terror upon its cinema release. Landis’ film has gone on to become one of the most important horror films of its decade, rightly lauded for its masterful set-pieces, uniquely unsettling atmosphere and Rick Baker’s truly ground-breaking, Oscar-winning special make-up effects. Now newly restored and presented with an abundance of extra features, this big beast of horror can be devoured as never before...

Fantastic transfer

Fantastic transfer of a stone cold classic. Fantastic service by zavvi

Arrow does it again....👍

This is a superb box set, it's the best the film has ever looked and the overall package is beautiful.

A classic horror/comedy never looked better

For one reason or the other, I put off buying the Blu-Ray version of this movie for years, and now, I was able to get the ultimate release - a movie in 4K UltraHD in a great-looking package with plenty of extras. But, this is another problematic release because it is exactly the same as the previous Blu-Ray limited edition, just the 4K instead of the regular Blu-Ray disc. Because of that, for most movies that Arrow releases as Limited on Blu-Ray with the 4K sources will get a 4K release a year or two after, so what's the point of having Blu-Ray only release in the first place? Why not include something more, make different artwork, or improve it some other way? I gave this release 5 stars, because it would not be fair to this movie to give less, but if there is a way to rate ArrowVideo it would be one star only.

5 Star for Movie, 0 Stars for Arrow.

Robocop and An American Werewolf in London, both previously released as Limited Edition, on Blu-Ray. How can a Limited Edition be released again, with the same special features, the same poster, the same Lobby Cards and the same booklet and still be called Limited Edition? Everybody who bought the Robocop and An American Werewolf in London Blu-Ray Limited Edition's must feel cheated and deceived. This Edition is not Limited by any means and title should be updated to, re-released edition with 4K Discs Arrow should feel embarrassed by these releases.

Expensive Upgrades Forever?

Here we go again. Exactly the same contents and outer box, but with the 4K disc for an extra fiver. This is just my opinion, but I’m sick of distributors milking a blu ray set for all its worth, then releasing the higher definition, expecting people to buy it again. It’s the same with all 4K steelbooks at the moment. The prices are outrageous and I refuse to pay them. Saying that, I’m sure people will buy this. The set contents are great, as is the film. All packaged in a strong box with great artwork. You won’t be disappointed with it

Same Edition, just 4k

This release is the exact same as the limited edition Blu-Ray release. How lazy and uninspired can Arrow be? If You have LTD edition Blu-ray, just wait for the standard 4K release. Agree?
