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.
