I completely love this film. I love how it shifts tone so quickly from making you laugh to being completely horrific. Also I love the cheerful "Blue Moon" playing as the end credits roll after such a heartbreaking conclusion. It's so powerful in playing with your emotions.

I would highly recommend The Howling. It’s in the 70s. I thought it was well done but you might not. If you are going for Howling movies, stick to the first. Or if you wanna go ooollld classic try original Wolfman ( though I did actually like the remake too). Love your channel. Keep it up fellas

I am just so confused that you NEED a film to fit in some box or you can't deal with it. I really am. You need to take it as it is. If it doesn't speak to you, fine. And it DOES have a tone. That you don't get it, fine. But yea, as reaction channels go, I gotta give you a 7.9 because some movies don't fit in a box. Transcend boxes. And if you had actually seen it when it was released instead of 30 years later after seeing newer movies. Bah. See you next time. 😁😁😁

Not sure if it is what they were going for but the attraction could be because it's animalistic (the same way Vampires draw people in) so maybe that was the aspect, he even gets more forward and confident the more the film moves forward which could also show that.

Nothing to add except FUN FACTS: Director John Landis, in his late teens, was a stunt performer on Sergio Leone's 'Once Upon A Time In The West.' He kept his union card and in this film he's the guy who gets hit by the car and thrown through the plate glass window. The climax is a masterpiece of economy, since they only had Piccadilly for a Saturday and Sunday night and the police would halt traffic for them for only 3 minutes at a time.

“Fun facts”... the BFF played by Griffin Gunne is the brother of Dominique Dunne...she played the older sister in Poltergeist. She was later murdered by her abusive boyfriend. Their father, Dominic Dunne has been an advocate ever since. Also, David Naughton was the guy in the Dr. Pepper commercials of the 80’s (not sure if that’s just an American thing lol) but I’m sure it’s somewhere in the internet ether if you look lol. (Just my opinion but An American Werewolf in Paris sucked)

This director also worked for National Lampoon. Their movies all have this sort of vibe - mockery (lampooning) rather than true comedy. Some people call it black humor. Watch some National Lampoon movies - they are awesome. :) I think it's really interesting how some Americans can't understand British humor and vice versa. PS - I always thought that scene in the theater was an American attempt at British humor.

The director was John Landis and he also directed Michael Jacksons Thriller video and Coming to America, Blues Brothers and Animal House, it was intended as a black comedy horror as John Landis has a comedy background. The effects were ground breaking for the time especially as they're practical effects. Maybe rewatch it with the comedy element in mind, and films at the time were very rarely over 90 minutes it's a more recent thing that films go on for hours. May be watch The Twilight Zone, that was another John Landis film.

Look at the length of the movie and compare to movies now. 90 minutes... Now that's kind of short compared to most movies now which are at least 2 hours. So you are used to more indepth character development especially between the nurse and Jack because it seems she took a fancy with him in just THREE DAYS in the hospital convalescing a major attack. Technically, he just rampaged for two days... The first day he killed 6 and then the next day he went on a London rampage. Not enough time for the nurse to really connect the dots or even to feel horror but investment in him pulling through. Was too slow in the beginning and then had to clean up too quick at the end. Needed another 30mins for a really good boss battle and an ending where she finds out she's pregnant. Maybe the nurse gives birth and have a scene where the corpses all gather around the crib and sing songs because she's sooo cute. That would have been hilarious.

In the 80's tone wasn't always concentrated on one thing. This was the beginning of the Dark Comedy Genre. As with most FIRSTS, there is an evolution stage that is a bit awkward. You can't rate the comedy up to Shaun of the Dead so you might dismiss it as a failure, but when you see that the humor was meant as a cool off period between the pure bloody scary parts, then you can see why it was necessary. Plus it was meant to try and express the mentality of a person who is a werewolf and how their psyche would be to tormented if they had any humanity left. Oh sure, you can see that a psychopath would actually revel in being a werewolf and most likely be able to be conscious during the transition. But this guy was an innocent with a good heart, so his mind couldn't handle the aggressive violence and he'd black out during the wolf phase. It is true that you can't put this movie in comparison with the others because its tone is eclectic but that makes it a classic. You need to watch Howling, not the sequels as those are bullshit campy, the original uses dark humor in tiny little snippets like the universe is laughing and setting up little quirky coincidences... You two will love it.

My issue with it is that most of the emotional weight/drama hinges on the relationship and the character's inner life but neither are developed enough to feel invested. The effects and action are amazing so it's a fun ride that way.

No, the investment was with his friend. He obviously chose to go on a long journey with this "good friend". A friend his mind keeps conjuring up in a manic form. And since he was a long way from family, in his trauma, he needed consolation. He projected onto the nurse. And she being a nurse. What's to say she didn't have a florence nightingale complex. That she projected on to him. It works that way. She sat on the bed staring at his scratches. Knowing his friend died. Instantly attracted to him, and his condition(so to speak). Fed him(comforter).

In my opinion, thats what i loved about this film the charecters feel real, theres no big movie moments with arcs and backstories, many classics dont have them and are way better than some that do, people focus alot on things like that now but it wasnt a thing back then, it was more realistic ,i usually feel more for naturalistic charecters than the ones that have depth wich is why i felt bad for both of them in this film, its the reason why i root for chief brody in Jaws i relate more to him than any ,modern complex character because he feels human and not a bland clicthe, thats why i also feel for father karras in the excorcist too that film is very human because the charecters have basic human worries, its about ordinary people facing crazy things

I think movies in general were all different around that time. They didn't know what to do. They were experimenting. One of the strangest movies in the early 80s was Xanadu. There was some hits and some misses in the process. So for this movie to still be entertaining they did a good job.

@chris nolan I am fine with that...actually some cult classics didn't do good at the box office. I always liked the little cult classic movie Times Square. My point is that unlike the list of what was on the top grossing films good films don't always do well at the box office and ones that do well at the box office aren't always good films. When Hollywood has both a hit at the box office and it is truly a good film it is great. They were trying to figure out that at that time. not a problem

To me this movie is brilliant. The "shifting tone" makes it more believable in a sense, because that's how life really is - silly one moment, serious the next, confusing the one after that. Also, the whole movie is one of clashes - cultural clash between American and British people, clash between the mundane modern world and the world of superstition, clash between the absurdity and seriousness of life in general. The werewolf is also a creature with two forms. Maybe the duality is intentional. It's funny how you used the phrase "in limbo" just like Jack and the other victims who have to exist in limbo. Maybe the tonal quirkiness puts the audience in limbo... it seems we're all victims of the werewolf. The nightmares in this film were extremely disturbing and visceral, and they stuck with me for years.

By the way - after years, you might revisit the whole idea of lists AND the movies on those list and then consider a new option: "How many have I rewatched?" and "How many contribute scenes or quotes that I use or think of, frequently?" Eventually, someone will point you to David Lynch's BLUE VELVET and - shudder - ERASERHEAD. When you revisit AMERICAN WEREWOLF, you'll recall the similarities of it's soundtrack to BLUE VELVET's absolute perversion of some music.

A radio troupe ("Alien Voices") did hour-long versions of many classics, and this was one of the rare modern stories. They had several of John Landis' cut-out scenes included in their radio program - since it would be necessarily shortened due to lack of gory visual times, plus the bedroom antics. Two important additional scenes was "the town meeting" among the 'villagers' who spoke of knowing who the werewolf was. And the second addition was at the end, where two of the 'villagers' came to London and kill this American werewolf, hoping this would put an end to their own guilt for not killing 'their' werewolf long ago.

Director John Landis comes from a comedic background with previously making The Blues Brothers and afterwards making Trading Places. There were several werewolf films in the early 1980's and this is the best. Others include The Howling, Wolfen and Michael Jackson's Thriller video also directed by Landis. An amazing film. Your thoughts will change. Your reactions don't reflect your ratings. Cheers.

There's a real good point to her incomprehensible attraction to him, actually. Because of his transformation he has probably started to excrete strong animalistic pheromones, which causes her to be inexplicably attracted to him, although she herself admits she can't understand why really. Makes sense if you think about it.

Interesting concept. In as, I think all of our world's problems are still predominantly animalistic tendency now hidden in the human condition, subliminally. I think most of the film is meta. If you can think that way, it becomes even more intriguing. He's constantly in his head. His nightmares. His daydreams(nightmares). The victims he killed appear as he(the werewolf) saw them. Even though he has to be introduced to them as if they have never been seen through his eyes(human eyes). Subliminally, he has seen them.

Look people, I know that the transformation scene is awesome. It still working even after almost 40 years later. But please, stop crying about Practical Effects are better than CGI using this film. It was made on 1981. THE EARLY 80s. The technology for the CGI wasn't perfect. Tron used it a year later more for vehicles and background. And even then we knew it looked very plastic. Stop talking that practical effects are better than CGI, because saying that, you're saying that films like Basket Case or Garbage Pail Kids have better effects than Jurassic World.

@TheKain202 Do you remember the Spinosaurus vs T-Rex scene of Jurassic Park 3? Do you know that the original fight was going to be longer and even ending with the T-Rex being beheaded by the Spinosaurus? Do you know why that never happened? Because the animatronic of the Spinosaurus (The biggest and moree complex made by then for the studio of Stan Winston, btw. Pure technology!) got broken... And couldn't fix it at time... Now do you get my point? Very beautiful till you remember that, at the moment one of them got broken, all your plans got ruined. That the crew are fucked up because they must use something that probably can't be fixed at time, delaying recording and wasting budget.

I can guarantee that what you think were the most impressive shots in Jurassic Park were practical. That movie had less than 120 seconds of CGI. 90% of the dino scenes were done in practical.

@Malk Von Batshit And your boomer opinion lacks. Yes, practical effects can look convicing and be useful... Always that they work. Because hey, maybe people forget but some practical effects could break down easily. "Friday the 13th", the first one. Do you remember that scene of the stab on the neck from under the bed? Well, did you know that the system that had to pull the blood BROKE on that scene? They had to fix it with the VFX supervisor blowing from the pipe. For that reason it is visible air bubbles when it shouldn't be there. "Jurassic Park 3". Do you remember the fight between the T-Rex and the Spinosaurus? Originally it was going to be longer, and it would end with the Spinosaurus BEHEADING the T-Rex. Why didn't happen? Because the animatronic of the Spinosaurus (The biggest and more complex made by the studio of Stan Winston, btw) broke... And couldn't fix it at time. Yes, they can look pretty IF THEY WORK. And even if they work, the thing with the practical effects are simple: IT MUST LOOK GOOD EVEN IN THE RECORDING OF THE EFFECT! Why? Well, if the effect looks fake when you record it... IT WILL ALWAYS LOOK FAKE! Look Basket Case, the Friday the 13th sequels, THE GARBAGE PAIL KIDS MOVIE! They will always look fake and cheap. What happens with the CGI? If a effect looks bad, the studio can always fix it: Polish it, change the render, the illumination... So, let me tell you something: A scene that uses 100% CGI or uses partially CGI and other elements don't care. It cares that looks good and realistic. Look Blade Runner 2049, King Kong (2005), Ex Machina, Prometheus... AVATAR (2009). 100% CGI and looks so realistic. So yes, CGI is replacement for Practical Effects: Can be fixed, and can't delay the work on the film. If your nostalgic boomer ass can't leave behind the 80s, if your fault. P.S: Thanks for insulting the hours of work that animators and designers has to waste on make CGI saying that they don't put effort. "can look a thousand times better than a 100% CGI scene as long as the film makers put in the EFFORT" Because isn't Hollywood who makes the effects, are other studios who makes them

It is better than CGI because there wasn't other option for this film. Stop crying about practical effects are better than CGI.

The actor who becomes the werewolf was originally a spokesman for Dr. Pepper (a soda) before he was in this movie. He is also a dancer.

Didn't Dr. Pepper fire him after learning that he appeared naked in this film? Because that was so unfair!

Its a 10 of 10, the mix of comedy and horror seriousness is what makes it great. It was my favorite film when I was 6 years old.

Rick Baker, the legendary SFX mastermind here won an Academy Award for this movie. Jenny Agutter is an absolute babe. Watch Logan's Run for more of her. "See You Next Wednesday", the name of the porn, is in all of John Landis's movies somewhere or another. It's from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The tall bald guy in the hospital was Frank Oz, aka Yoda and Miss Piggy. I was 11 when I saw this in the theater, in Times Square with my dad. Scared the shit out of me, but made me laugh too.

Watched it as a kid ,when it came out!.... everyone loved it, because it was completely FUCKING bonkers!!😁👍💀💀but you have to realise, there wasn't anything really like that before it! Other directors built on that after it. This was a watershed moment when it came out. The craziness and the change from man to wolf was the best ever filmed at the time. But youve got to imagine being a teenager in 1981!😉👍
