An American Werewolf in London (1981) John Landis – Show Me the Sequel!

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

It's time for a new episode of our Show Me the Sequel video series, and in this one above we're asking for a sequel to John Landis's classic 1981 werewolf movie An American Werewolf in London. (Watch it HERE). Here is where you may stop me and say, "But we already have a sequel to An American Werewolf in London!" It's true, a follow-up called An American Werewolf in Paris was released in 1997, but that sequel isn't popular with most AWIL fans. We have an idea that might be received better: An American Werewolf in Venice. You can hear all about it in the video embedded above.

The Show Me the Sequel series is about 

genre films that either never got sequels and we feel it's long overdue, fine movies that did get sequels but they were so lackluster that going back to square one is a must, or… flicks that DO have sequels but hey, we want freaking MORE of them! On top of that, we put our pitch for what said sequel should be about!

Show Me the Sequel is written and narrated by Pat Q, Edited by Edward Clark, Produced by John Fallon, and Berge Garabedian is the Executive Producer.

Written and directed by John Landis, An American Werewolf in London has the following synopsis:

David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), two American college students, are backpacking through Britain when a large wolf attacks them. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed. As David heals in the hospital, he's plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf. When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.
