Metcalf's DVD Screening Room: "An American Werewolf in London"
For a while, "An American Werewolf In London" was the most popular video to rent or buy in the world. That was before DVD's, in the long ago days of videotape, back in the mid-1980s. It is still worth a look for several reasons. First, because it was the film that forced the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to start giving an Academy Award for makeup design. And, it marked a big step for writer/director John Landis.
