I might not actually be able to watch!
Despite the release of more American Horror Story trailers to keep us guessing (loving the Creature from the Black Lagoon one by the way) and the new images from IT, I am most concerned about the thought of an American Werewolf in London remake.
Seriously, I’ve tried to explain what even the thought of this movie does to me. And I know it’s not even scary – not really. But out of all the movies I have ever seen, including the sequel, this one makes me feel like there should be more room behind the sofa.
So…few deep breaths…
Set in Britain (where I live), regulars to a quaint village pub -The Slaughtered Lamb- provide a cautionary tale to two American Students. Venturing out into the woods, despite being told to stay on the roads, they encounter a werewolf. At this point I realized I had a desperate need for a drink and so nipped to the kitchen. Then there was the laundry that needed taking upstairs before I could return to the movie (no, I hadn’t paused it first. I was about 10, why was I doing laundry?). So, anyway, the surviving student begins to have nightmares – one of which is his dead friend come back to warn him. Then there was a thing with a nurse. Look the point is, this movie gave me nightmares for weeks. Apparently, I woke the whole house up with my screams.
The original movie was written and directed by John Landis
American Werewolf in London Remake
Now there are rumors, suggestions, tweets, indicating that John Landis’ own son, Max Landis, is working on the script for a remake. Although, he has denied that he’s working on the script and a remake hasn’t been announced by Universal who hold the rights – so, phew, maybe I can get therapy before anyone does remake it?
I categorically deny any rumors about upcoming projects printed today.

But I will now be following him on Twitter just to make sure there are no full-moon surprises lurking in the forest of tweets.
Could we possibly put a stop to the sharing of American Werewolf in London props and memorabilia on social media? There was the coolest werewolf prop on Instagram recently and I both loathed it instantly and wanted it desperately – there should be no moment in life when anyone should see that combination of emotion on my face.
Can’t believe I’m sharing this on my blog – you can actually buy these things.
