An American Werewolf in London Review

   Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 6.12.49 PM An American Werewolf in London is one of the most perfectly constructed horror movies ever created, and certainly the best werewolf movie I’ve ever seen (then again I haven’t seen many werewolf movies). Written and directed by John Landis, An American Werewolf in London has the perfect mixture of hilariousness and thrills to keep the viewer attached to the screen as the film unravels. Yes, this film is most famous for its transformation scene that definitely changed the landscape with regards to monster transformations, but this film is great all around, from start to finish. Starting off with two backpackers  roaming the English landscape as they share jokes with each other, this film starts off nicely and then just keeps on getting better, keeps on getting funnier, and keeps on getting scarier. Though apart from Landis’s comedic sensibilities, something I’ve always loved about this movie is the lore, the undead roaming Limbo, especially the conversations and stupendous banter that takes place between our protagonist and the undead. Since I don’t want to ruin any story-points, I shall finalize my review to imploring you as the reader to go watch An American Werewolf in London, a stupendous film, a great film to watch on Halloween, and a 91 out of 100.
