An American Werewolf in London – Presented by HorrorBuzz

HorrorBuzz American Werewolf in London

Horror Movie Night presented by HorrorBuzz is thrilled to bring back director John Landis’ iconic film An American Werewolf in London.

American tourists David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are savaged by a vicious, unidentified animal whilst hiking on the Yorkshire Moors. David awakes in a London hospital to find his friend dead and his life in disarray. Retiring to the home of a beautiful nurse (Jenny Agutter) to recuperate, he soon experiences disturbing changes to his mind and body, undergoing a full-moon transformation that will unleash terror on the streets of the city…

We’ve paired it up with the HorrorBuzz Screaming Room at Midsummer Scream 2019 Audience Award winner for the Die Laughing block, We Summoned a Demon. Also make sure to buff up on werewolf knowledge for this month’s werewolf themed Pumpkin Pack game show.

Doors open at 9:45pm with the latest edition of the amazing HMN Video Pre-Show. Remember to arrive early and grab a glass of this month’s themed specialty beverage, Bad Moon Rising.

And, of course, Dum-dums.


“It feels increasingly like a symbol of traveler abroad alienation-what trying to live in a place that isn’t home can feel like: confusing, rageful, even physically debilitating.” – Sean Fennessey, The Ringer

“Director John Landis here pulls off the difficult trick of revitalising the horror genre while parodying it at the same time.” – Alan Jones, Radio Times

“One of the few horror films that explore the psychological effects of lycanthropy alongside the physical and the fallout…” – Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
