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 original 1981 US One Sheet movie poster shows a very understated and restrained design for a horror poster as David and Jack stare up at the full moon and claw-shaped clouds. Presented in unrestored condition this folded (as issued) example displays to very good effect and represents a great 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.
