An American Werewolf in London (1981)

An American Werewolf in London Quote: –

It’s another Shat The Movies horror-comedy, but this time we have an ’80s classic. Longtime listener Rob T. reached out from across the pod to commission the 1981 John Landis masterpiece, “An American Werewolf in London.”

Big D’s the star this week as we get more Ebert Animal Tips for Safety, hear why he thinks the British make the best horror movie victims, marvel at what it takes to convince Dick a film is a comedy, and learn how to use apartment tours to woo women.

In this episode, we also cheer the practical effects (that transformation scene … woof), wish for a Naughty Nina spinoff, discover what Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson have in common, and uncover the secret messages about Jewish life in an Anglo world. Plus, Gene and Ash conspire to leave their giant co-host behind in the event of a wolf attack.

Plot Summary: “An American Werewolf in London” David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), two American college students, are backpacking through Britain when a large wolf attacks them. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed. As David heals in the hospital, he’s plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf. When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.
