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 Bakers’ ground-breaking, Oscar-winning special makeup effects. Now restored in 4K, and presented with an abundance of extra features, this big beast of horror can be devoured as never before...

Nice set!!

I have a love-hate relationship with Arrow of late, with their multiple releases of the same title - limited edition, steelbook limited edition, limited amray with slipcase, blah blah blah......really does smack of cashing in. BUT this release of AWIL is beautiful, more for Graham Humphries great artwork, really. The disc is full of new featurettes, interviews, etc, but the hook for me was that artwork. One gripe would be the back of the slipbox should have had a more eyecatching image........like the face of the werewolf with blood dripping mouth. As it is, the image on the back is boring and lazy, really. Still, a great set!

Classic

What can I say of this classic horror comedy? Only it finally got release it deserves! This one is definetly the best one I've come across of this movie. Beautiful packaging, superb extras. Arrow has done it again

Collectors royalty

Amazing edition of one of the all time greats, perfectly put together By Arrow and sold by Zavvi the box set is everything it looks with a nice solid outer case picturing great new artwork , with a reversible sleeve inside and replica cinema lobby cards and a double sided poster and to finish it off a nice detailed booklet. The transfer is amazing and really pictures the feel of the feel from back in the day, the soundtrack is also great with its original mono and 5.1 DTS, buckets of extras to keep you entertained and awesome audio commentary , really is everything and more , a great pre sale from Zavvi at a great price delivered on time as promised via the release date , a complete gem and no hassle purchase 5* all round , buy now before it sells out and becomes out of print.

Awesome Set

One of my favourite Horror Movies of all time and the first Horror I ever saw so this holds a special place in my collection. Shame this isn't a 4K set but the transfer is Awesome and fully restored. Great sound quality and loads of interesting extra features. The artwork is amazing on the set. The box set also includes a Book, Postcards and a Poster. Arrow Video outdid themselves with this release and I cant wait to receive the Ribocop set in November too. Fast delivery and great price Zavvi, Thank you.

An American Werewolf

This NEW print from Arrow is a 4K restoration from the original negative! Looks and sounds amazing, really vibrant colours and only a fine layer of grain. Loads of Special features to go through. All in all a really good Package.
