An American Werefolf in London

American Werewolf

1981 (John Landis) R

David Naughton; Jenny Agutter

Bumming around Europe, two American students (David Naughton and Griffin Dunne) are attacked by a fierce beast leaving Dunne killed and Naughton heavily gashed and gored.

Recovering in a London Hospital and, later, in the flat of amorous nurse Jenny Agutter, Naughton experiences some disturbing and visually outrageous nightmares and is visited by the Undead Dunne, who urges his friend to commit suicide or turn into a werewolf with the next full moon.

Naughton ignores the advice and, sure enough, undergoes a complete transformation on camera, a highlight in which talents of special make-up effects designer Rick Baker are shown in full flower.
