When it comes to werewolf movies there is one movie that has transcended all others for the past 35 years. An American Werewolf in London stands like a colossus in the ‘full moon’ genre and continues to both tickle and terrify fans new and old across the globe. Not only did it revolutionize special make-up effects, this much loved cult classic movie spawned a multitude of horror flicks that shared its sense of fun set against a backdrop of blood and state of the art gory effects.

Beware the Moon: The Story of An American Werewolf in London comprehensively details the journey of Director John Landis’ dream movie to the silver screen and the exotic events that served as inspiration for the seminal tale of lycanthropy.
