Beware the Moon: Remembering 'An American Werewolf in London' (2009)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

You know you're in for a treat whenever a documentary runs longer than the actual film. This film from Paul Davis pretty much gathers everyone from the production of AN American WEREWOLF IN London and gives fans an excellent change to hear some stories about the production as well as take a look at the cast and crew as they are today. When I say just about everyone from the production is here, I'm really not lying. All the big folks are here including John Landis, Rick Baker, Jenny Agutter, Griffin Dunne and David Naughton. You get smaller characters in the film (several victims, the porn actress) as well as the cinematographer, the editor and various special effects guys.

If you're a fan of the film then there's no doubt that you're going to love hearing these stories. Landis starts us off talking about how he originally wrote the screenplay in 1969 and he discusses why it took so long to film. There's plenty of talk about the casting and pretty much all the key scenes in the movie are discussed. Even better is talk about the negative reaction the movie originally got plus there's talk about several scenes that had to be taken out in order for the movie to get a R rating. This is certainly one of the better special features to be added on a disc so it's highly recommended.
