An American Werewolf in London



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

A truly influential genre classic…John Landis’ tongue in cheek werewolf horror romp “An American Werewolf in London”. This original 1982 (first year of release in Japan) Japan B2 film poster is stunning and comes directly from the personal archive of the special effects maestro Rick Baker; great horror imagery and often referred to as the “monster montage style” featuring all of creatures from the Film and even a bit of saucy Jenny Agutter nudity . Amazing horror imagery…full on and very in your face and not at all understated and restrained as is the US one sheet version. With unique Japan design this is an extremely desirable, very rare poster from a “golden age” of physical movie special effects. In near faultless original, unrestored condition this rolled example presents in investment grade condition and represents an exciting piece of original horror film movie memorabilia…“Be rational, sure. I’m a fucking werewolf, for Christ’s sake!”

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.
