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

David Naughton didn't know Griffin Dunne before doing this film, stating, "We were thrown together quickly. It turns out, when we finally met in London, we discovered we had a lot in common. He'd grown up in the same part of the world as me, in Connecticut. And it was just luck that we hit it off as well as we did. We became fast friends, and you just hope that that's the case when you work on a project that you like the other actors, and you're able to have a kind of chemistry. It helped being the only two Americans on the cast and crew. We were in it together." See more »
When David and Alex are checking out of the market, the close-up of the cashier shows her pressing the register buttons with her left hand. On the long shot, she is using her right. See more »

The film was edited to receive an "R" rating in the U.S. The love scene with David and Jenny was toned down. Food coming through Jack's mouth as he was eating toast was also removed. See more »
One of the best werewolf movies ever made, full of dark humor and gory thrills. As most people know, this has one of the best human/werewolf transformation scenes in cinematic history! The only other movie to show such detail is The Howling. This movie is really fun to watch, and if you are seeing it for the first time you will be shocked at some of the things you see. Great performances from the cast, and an excellent script make this a memorable experience. Unlike monster/horror movies today, this film has no computer-aided special effects. It doesn't need them, for this is a landmark film.
