An American Werewolf In London

Updated on December 7, 2014

Stay Off The Moors!

David and Jack are two American students taking a break from school and their families by taking a three month trek across the English countryside. While traveling through a very small country town wet and hungry they are attacked by a creature of the night.

David is the only one who survives the attack but he's having horribly gory dreams and his dead and mutilated friend Jack keeps coming to him and telling him he should kill himself before the next full moon.

An American Werewolf in London was written and directed by John Landis who is the creator of the movie Animal House and Micheal Jackson's Thriller. This is one of my favorite movies and if you enjoyed it too, you've come to the right place.

An American Werewolf in London

One of the best horror movies of all time with incredibly detailed make-up effects by Rick Baker that still hold up for today's audience. Baker set the standards for future monster movies. There's comedy, there's blood and guts and there's a white guy running around in his birthday suit in the middle of the London.

David's Transformation - I see the bad moon rising...

Considering this movie is over twenty-five years old, the special effects are awesome and still make it a great movie today. This is the big transformation scene where David becomes a werewolf for the first time.

I'm Coming for You

Music Lyrics

So you can sing along with the movie...

Blue Moon

Blue moon,

you saw me standing alone

without a dream in my heart

without a love on my own.

Blue moon,

you knew just what I was there for

you heard me saying a prayer for

somebody I really could care for.

And then there suddenly appeared before me,

the only one my arms will ever hold

I heard somebody whisper, "Please adore me."

and when I looked,

the moon had turned to gold.

Blue moon,

now I'm no longer alone

without a dream in my heart

without a love on my own.

Moondance

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance

With the stars up above in your eyes

A fantabulous night to make romance

'Neath the cover of October skies

And all the leaves on the trees are falling

To the sound of the breezes that blow

And I'm trying to please to the calling

Of your heart-strings that play soft and low

And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush

And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Chorus:

Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love

Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight

I can't wait 'til the morning has come

And I know that the time is just right

And straight into my arms you will run

And when you come my heart will be waiting

To make sure that you're never alone

There and then all my dreams will come true, dear

There and then I will make you my own

And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside

And I know how much you want me that you can't hide

Chorus:

Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love

Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance

With the stars up above in your eyes

A fantabulous night to make romance

'Neath the cover of October skies

And all the leaves on the trees are falling

To the sound of the breezes that blow

And I'm trying to please to the calling

Of your heart-strings that play soft and low

And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush

And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

One more Moondance with you in the moonlight

On a magic night

La, la, la, la in the moonlight

On a magic night

Can't I just have one more dance with you my love

      I must have seen this movie at least 10 times. Definitely a classic horror movie and that transformation sequence has to be some of the best makeup work ever.
