10/10.The other great werewolf movie of the 80's alongside The Howling.An American Werewolf In London has the perfect blend of horror with some dark humor such as the cursed man's dead friend hounding him to kill himself along with the guy's victims.Rick Baker's work is pretty good though obviously his work on The Howling is indeed better.I would say both are equally good movies.If anything, they revived the public's interest in one of the best mythological creatures The lead, David Naughton anguish could match Lon Chaney Jr's anguish in The Wolfman quite well. One of the best scenes comes when he awakens in the hospital all pale with yellow eyes and fangs, the monster starting to surface.Yet another masterpiece of horror film making of people who cared about the mythology.An American Werewolf In London is a truly perfect horror movie.Rob245
Continuity mistake: In the scene where David (as a werewolf) exits the theatre, causing general havoc and mayhem, a car crashes into the one in front of it, sending the "driver" through the windshield. If you watch closely (or use slo-mo), you'll see that the driver goes through the windshield just before hitting the car in front of him (or her).
Alex: David, please be rational. Let's go and see Dr. Hirsch.
David: Yeah, be rational. Sure. I'm a fucking werewolf, for Christ's sake.
