London Horror Movie Club watches “American Werewolf In London” – the classic comedy horror directed by John Landis and beloved by horror fans and directors.
A clever, modern werewolf film starring David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, and Jenny Agutter, this is a classic so very well known, but Chris and I take a chance to go through our favourite bits, things that didn’t make sense, best one-liners, the way Landis uses London and even attempt to cast a reboot.
The thing that surprised me most in this episode was when Chris told me he didn’t think it was a comedy! I had never thought of it as anything other than a comedy, so it was interesting to see what made it tip the balance into ‘pure horror’ for him. I do think I manged to convince him it is a comedy though. You’ll have to listen and tell me what you think.
