Movies; An American Werewolf in London (1981)

This film revolutionised the werewolf horror movie. Using what were at the time state of the art special effects (that went on to win an oscar), this film tells the story of two americans out walking on the yorkshire moors. They get attacked by what they think is a large dog, and one of them (played by Griffin Dunne) dies. The survivor carries on his holiday, getting involved with Jenny Agutter, but his dead friend keeps popping up warning him about the full moon. Then he starts to transform.

A greatly inferior sequel "an american werewolf in paris" was made in 1997.

Directed by John Landis.
