Arguably the best and most famous werewolf movie of the 20th century is An American Werewolf In London. AWIL had it all: great horror, black humour, a killer soundtrack, and the best werewolf transformation scene ever committed to film. Now, over 25 years after AWIL was released, filmmaker Paul Davis is getting ready to release Beware the Moon – Remembering An American Werewolf in London, a feature-length documentary on the making of the classic werewolf movie.
CHUD.com has an exclusive & quite lengthy interview with Davis, where he speaks about his love for AWIL, the motivation behind creating the documentary, and his efforts to secure the involvement of the original actors and filmmakers. It’s well worth a read- it’s clear that a lot of effort and passion went into creating this documentary.
Beware The Moon will be premiering June 20th at the HorrorHound horror convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Apparently there’s a chance that Beware The Moon could be included as a feature on future editions of AWIL DVDs, so if you can’t get out to see it at HorrorHound (or even if you can), make sure to stop by the documentary’s official MySpace page to offer your support!
