Episode 23: An American Werewolf in London

November 11, 2017

Welcome back! This is the first of our Werewolf shows. We take a look at the cult classic film that took the werewolf transformations to the next level, with mechanical make-up effects that pre-date the wonderful computer graphics that we enjoy today. So does the film The Howling. While Roger Ebert gave An American Werewolf in London a poor review, saying it " ...seems curiously unfinished, as if director John Landis spent all his energy on spectacular set pieces and then didn't want to bother with things like transitions, character development, or an ending."

 

We however found it highly entertaining in spite of it's flaws.  Although we do have some questions about the ending.
