    An American Werewolf in London

    £295.00

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

    A truly influential genre great…John Landis’ tongue in cheek werewolf horror romp “An American Werewolf in London”. This original 1981 UK quad film poster is stunning; great imagery as we see David before (very nude) and after (the best cinematic werewolf transformation ?) in incredible snarling wolf man mode. Very in your face and not at all as understated and restrained as the US one sheet version. With unique UK design this is an extremely desirable, very rare poster from a “golden age” of physical movie special effects. In excellent original, unrestored condition this folded (as issued) example displays to superb effect and represents a really nice item of original horror movie memorabilia from a classic of the genre.…“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.

    An American Werewolf in London

    £195.00

    “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 Oscar. This 2021 alternative movie poster by the American graphic artist Todd Alcott shows a very understated and restrained design for a horror poster as David (David Naughton), Jack (Griffin Dunne), Nurse Alex Price (Jenny Agutter) plus a number of London landmarks are represented as characters on what appears to be a beaten up paperback book cover. Presented in excellent condition this rolled (as issued) example displays superbly and has been printed too look distressed. Alcott’s impressive piece of poster artwork represents a great twist on traditional horror movie memorabilia and is a great example in the rapidly expanding area of alternative movie posters. “I vote we go back to the Slaughtered Lamb”

    An American Werewolf in London

    £595.00

    “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 Oscar. This 2011 hand-numbered (#31/380) and signed by the artist – Olly Moss alternative movie poster is a very clever design as the werewolf’s head is incorporated into a silhouette map of the British Isles. Presented in excellent condition this rolled (as issued) example displays superbly and is an impressive piece of horror poster artwork and is a hugely desirable alternative movie poster by one of the leading artists working in the medium. “I vote we go back to the Slaughtered Lamb”

    Trivia: John Landis wrote the screenplay for this film following an incident while shooting Kelly’s Heroes (1970) (while he was a go-fer) in the countryside of Yugoslavia. While driving along a country road with a colleague, Landis encountered a gypsy funeral. The body was being buried in a massively deep grave, feet first, while wrapped in garlic so he would not rise from the dead.
