A pivotal horror film of the 1980s, John Landis’s hairy and scary werewolf classic practically invented the term ‘horror-comedy”, subverted audience expectations, reinvented lycanthrope lore, and revolutionised special makeup effects with Oscar-winning work by Rick Baker. Full of visceral violence, quintessentially British humour (and co-stars) and Creedence on the soundtrack, An American Werewolf in London remains a howlingly great time. Beware the moon.
