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”

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.
