An American Werewolf in London 
"An American Werewolf In London" by Yojimbo
3.5/4 stars

When two American students are attacked on the Yorkshire moors, one is killed but the other survives to be haunted by horrifying dreams and fears he may be turning into a werewolf. American Werewolf enjoys the reputation as one of the great horror comedies, but anyone expecting a slew of cheap gags in the vein of Scary Movie will get a little more than they bargained for. When Kubrick made Dr Strangelove he basically made a cold war thriller but with a subtle shift in emphasis he created a comedy legend; the same is true of this film. Take away the soundtrack and the scenes involving David's cheerfully rotting victims and you could easily mistake it for a straight horror film; the Yorkshire locations, isolated villagers and gentleman doctor's lone investigation are all very Hammer studios. But given an irreverant twist the gruesome horror becomes very funny; the bizarre and surreal situations he finds himself in, including finding himself naked in a zoo and watching a porno with a corpse combined with one of the greatest soundtracks ever compiled makes for some classic comedy. The metamorphosis effects have also stood up surprisingly well and David Naughton makes a great everyman to be caught up in these outrageous events. It may end a little too abruptly but it contains many classic scenes and still makes me laugh out loud every time.
