Within the pages of this luxuriously produced hardback guide to An American Werewolf in London you’ll learn about the development of the movie, from director Landis’ initial ideas through to the production, casting and the evergreen final results that wowed critics and audiences alike. Our famed image restoration work means every piece of art looks its best, and full colour printing means that even black and white stills have a stunning depth and richness. Our American Werewolf in London Ultimate Guide Signed Hardback is presented in A4 format (210mm x 297mm) and produced to the absolute highest standards – inspired by the kind of movie brochure you might have bought at the cinema in 1981, it’s a beautiful way to revisit a modern movie classic.
As well as celebrating the movie itself and discussing its place in horror movie culture, our hardback guide to An American Werewolf in London also pays ample tribute to the many kinds of artists who brought it to life. That’s why, alongside the entertaining and informative articles with their wealth of imagery, you’ll also find a number of engaging biographies that reveal the lives and careers of the cast and crew who made the movie a reality. As central protagonists David and Alex, stars David Naughton and Jenny Agutter bring warmth and pathos to a tale of horror, while Griffin Dunne’s portrayal of doomed Jack – in his human and increasingly ghoulish forms – offers dark humour and a sense of eerie mysticism. Meanwhile, support actors like John Woodvine and Don McKillop add context to the action – their stories will give you a deeper knowledge of the movie’s cast and a greater appreciation for their performances.
Of course, no American Werewolf in London hardcover guide would be complete without a look at Rick Baker’s sensational, Academy Award-winning special effects, which can make us squirm with discomfort even today. He’s just one of the many creatives who worked behind the scenes to bring this revolutionary slice of cinema to the screen: you’ll also discover more about director John Landis, composer Elmer Bernstein and so many others. The biographies in our compelling publication shine a spotlight on the people we have to thank for such a thrilling motion picture experience.

There’s a bad moon rising, so we need to stay off the moors.
