Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
Two American college students are on a walking tour of Britain and are attacked by a werewolf. One is killed, the other is mauled. The werewolf is killed but reverts to its human form, and the local townspeople are unwilling to acknowledge its existence. The surviving student begins to have nightmares of hunting on four feet at first but then finds that his friend and other recent victims appear to him, demanding that he commit suicide to release them from their curse, being trapped between worlds because of their unnatural deaths.Written by

Griffin Dunne said about Rick Bakers makeup process "he made the six hours bearable. The makeup's on, and then it constricts and then it pulls on your skin and then it has to be loosened up; you have people fussing with you; you want to pass out from the fumes. The glue is kind of like airplane glue, so it wasn't comfortable,They've come up with so many different techniques since then, so it was early pioneer stuff". See more »
At the beginning, Jack and David walk from a rural intersection to East Proctor. When they get to town, the bar is the first building on their left. Later, when Dr. Hirsch goes to East Proctor, he passes by the same intersection, but he enters town from a different direction, with the bar almost directly in front of him. The road on which Jack and David walked into town is visible in the background as Dr. Hirsch walks from his car to the bar. See more »
That way is Proctor, and over here is the moors. I go this way.
Thanks for the ride, sir. You have lovely sheep.
Boys, keep off the moors, stick to the roads. The best to ya...
[then to the sheep]
We'll miss you.

Due to a mastering error, the second Region 2 DVD (the 2-Disc Special Edition) has been edited to remove the scene where David calls home and speaks to his sister just before he attempts to cut his wrists with a pen knife
All earlier releases of the film including the initial 2-disc 21st Anniversary Edition are uncut. Universal Studios issued a statement saying that they will remove all affected stock and issue replacement discs. All Blu-ray releases are complete and uncut
Violent, gory yet somewhat bittersweet tale of an American tourist who has the misfortune of being bitten by a werewolf. David Naughton is young and bewildered, Jenny Agutter cute, innocent and sexy and Griffin Dunne hilarious as a rapidly decomposing poltergeist. The score is great and the special effects outstanding. This movie gives new meaning to the term Ugly American. Don't watch this on commercial TV. It can only be appreciated in its original, unedited form.
