(Weird) Watching Collab: An American Werewolf in London

An American Werewolf in London [1981]
Directed/Written by: John Landis
Featuring: David Naughton, Jenny Agutter & Joe Belcher
Production: PolyGram Pictures/Lyncanthrope Films Limited
Category: Werewolves of London

The Three Moviegos
: crazed author and chewer of glass.
Peter: unhinged spinner of little fears and jeers
Alex: raving hoarder of weird things

What do we three have in common? We’re lunatics, just like the main character of this movie! What better way for three classy fellas such as ourselves to spend a Saturday than watching on of the great horror classics?


Rating: Effects: 11 out of 10. British accuracy: 10 out of 10. All British woman want werewolves. Overall score: 9 out of 10. There was an hour with no werewolves and a lot of man ass… but not enough…

Rating: 10/10. It stands up. Enjoyed the film throughout. Practical effects were fab. Glad we gave it a revisit!

Rating: 10/10. One of my Top Horror Flicks of All Time. The effects are still amazing to watch decades later and the iconic transformation sequence is one of my all-time favorite movie scenes, period.

Collaborative Average: 9.8/10

An American Werewolf in London is an excellent film made all the more so when viewed as a party. Order a pizza, call up the pack, and spend an evening together at The Slaughtered Lamb.


I was driving myself bonkers trying to create an accurate timeline between comments, tweets, and the movie’s run-time. My original idea was to do a “Best-Of” from our viewing but this past week has not been ideal from a creative or attentive point, and seeing that the next collaboration is right on my tail, I had to crunch it down into our individual rating and an average rating. (Weird) Watching has a lot of backlog.
