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 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...

An American Werwolf in London

After owning this film for a great number of years now on standard dvd it was time to upgrade. The cover alone for the blu Ray release from arrow is nothing short of beauty. As for the disc itself, plenty of bonus features to be devoured and the transfer of the film truly does elevate this classic up-to the full moon itself. Would recommend to anyone without a doubt. Now that’s enough from me, enjoy and of course, beware of the moon.

American Werewolf in London

This has been a favourite of mine since I first saw it on TV back when I was a kid at the age of about 12 or 13 when this was first shown on TV. The effects are not up to today's standards but they are so impressive for what they had back in 1980/81 There's plenty of great special features going behind the scenes telling you about this. Some I've seen before or read about elsewhere. The film doesn't really need any introduction. But the quality of the digital clean up is amazing. If you have never seen this before, buy it now. If you have it still on VHS or dvd, get yourself a copy of this blu ray. The print is incredible. You also have the option to have original mono or new mixed 5.1 surround sound. Enjoy.

An American Werewolf in London

Another great Arrow release. We all know it’s a great movie so I’ll just say it’s a great 4k transfer and the cover and packaging are great as always from Arrow. Bargain price, highly recommended.

Great Arrow Release!

Great Arrow Video release and is a must have for horror fans. One of my favorites from the 80s, such a fun movie and with incredible make up from the legendary Rick Baker.

Can't fight the moonlight

A horror masterpiece that blends pin sharp satirical humour, chilling horror and eye watering practical effects together to form a film that still holds its place as the best Werewolf movie ever made even today. A film every horror fan should sink their teeth into for sure.

An American Werewolf In London

A unique film which succeeded in being both genuinely scary and funny.Add to that a great soundtrack and score,perfect acting and still fantastic practical effects and you’ve got an all-time classic. The new Arrow version retains grain but brings out more details than has ever been seen before, you can now read all the posters in the underground station!

Arrow does it again with another classic

Well done Arrow, you've done it again with one of my favourites.

Beautiful

Absolutely beautiful

American werewolf in London

John Landis has done it again in producing one of the greatest horror films ever written, its a film you could watch again and again
