 These are two of the most amazing transformation scenes on film!  The two titans of practical makeup special effects at the time Rick Baker and Rob Bottin created these amazing effects.


As far as the films I thought both were great but I enjoyed the humor more in An American Werewolf in London — along with the two stars David Naughton and Griffin Dunne…two of my all time favorites! 

An American Werewolf in London was released August 21, 1981


Tagline: John Landis - the director of Animal House brings you a different kind of animal.

Tagline: John Landis - the director of Animal House brings you a different kind of animal.


Two American students are on a walking tour of England and are attacked by a Werewolf. One is killed, the other is mauled. The Werewolf is killed, but reverts to it’s human form, and the townspeople are able to deny it’s existence. The surviving student begins to have nightmares of hunting on 4 feet at first, but then finds that his friend and other recent victims appear to him, demanding that he find a way to die to release them from their curse, being trapped between worlds because of their unnatural death.

Plot: There is a serial killer on the loose, Karen White is the only reporter he communicates with. After a near fatal encounter with him at an adult video store, she is ordered to take a vacation. Eddie was killed by Police, but Karen doesn’t want to let it go and discovers that he came from a tiny community in the woods and that’s where she decides to vacation with husband Bill. Big mistake, because Eddie was an outcast of a pack of Werewolves who is trying to keep a low profile and doesn’t want any interviews. Can Karen and Bill escape the village of the wolf?
