Universal Pictures is releasing the classic An American Werewolf in London once again. They released the Full Moon Edition a little over a year ago, and now they are coming out with just a plain DVD edition on September 4, 2012. At the moment there is no word on whether or not this DVD will have any bonus features, but considering how the DVD is under $15, I am guessing there won’t be many (or any) extras. This is just a small release for those looking to add the classic to their collection.
“While wandering the English moors on vacation, college yanks David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) happen upon a quaint pub with a mysterious patronage who warn them not to leave the road when walking after dark. Irreverent of such advice as characters in horror films always are, the two decide to find a short cut….David wakes up in the hospital with a nasty bite wound to his shoulder; the freshly deceased, and rapidly decomposing, Jack arrives soon after to deliver the grim news that, unless he commits suicide, David will become a werewolf when the moon is full. David dismisses the encounter as a hallucination, but all indicators point to lycanthrope; evenings of barking and bloodletting follow closely behind.”
Yeah, we all know the movie, we know it well. Ever since its release in 1981 this werewolf flick has been a fan favorite.
Anyone here planning on picking up the DVD next week? Or do you already own one of the other editions?
