  • An American Werewolf in London Movie Poster

    An American Werewolf in London


    “Stay on the road…Keep clear of the moors…Beware the moon, lads.”

    John Landis’ “An American Werewolf in London” is one of the best werewolf movies ever made, full of dark humour and gory thrills. As most people know, this has one of the best human/werewolf transformation scenes in cinematic history. Unlike modern monster/horror movies of today, this film has no CGI or computer-aided special effects; what you see on the screen is a physical production made piece for which Rick Baker won the Academy Award and that’s perfectly illustrated here on this Australian one-sheet as the said transformation of David (David Naughton) is fully featured. It appears the Australian poster designers weren’t worried about spoilers. Presented in unrestored condition this folded (as issued) example displays to very good effect and represents a fantastic item of original horror movie memorabilia from a classic of the genre with some truly eye-catching imagery. “I vote we go back to the Slaughtered Lamb”

    Trivia: Rick Baker claimed to have been disappointed by the amount of time spent shooting the face changing shot for the transformation after having spent months working on the mechanism. John Landis only required one take lasting about seven seconds. Baker felt he had wasted his time until seeing the film with an audience that applauded during that one seven second shot.

Originally rolled (as issued) this totally unrestored example presents and displays to excellent effect and represents a hugely collectible piece of movie memorabilia from a truly iconic movie…“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”

    Trivia: Uma Thurman originally turned down the role of Mia Wallace. Quentin Tarantino was so desperate to have her as Mia, he ended up reading her the script over the phone, finally convincing her to take on the role
