Director John Landis and make-up master Rick Baker's astonishing lycanthropic transformation in American Werewolf in London turned this film into an instant horror classic.

When American tourists David Kessler and Jack Goodman (David Naughton and Griffin Dunne) are attacked while backpacking through the English moors, a cycle of murder and mayhem begins. David awakes in London as the sole survivor, where his doctor explains that he and Jack were the victims of an escaped lunatic. David is released into the care of his nurse Alex, and the two return to her flat, where he continues to be haunted by his deceased and decaying friend Jack! Now one of the undead, his friend explains that David now bears the curse of the werewolf! As David questions his sanity, the full moon approaches, and the city of London will find out for certain if he is truly the beast. 

We hope you'll join us in celebrating this gory shred of cinematic perfection the way it was meant to be presented; on 35mm, close to Halloween, and in front of a terrified audience!
