NEWSFLASH: Happy Birthday – John Landis

John Landis, and friend from An American Werewolf in London (1981)

‘I always loved those 1960s films and the things Richard Lester had done with The Beatles, and I conceived An American Werewolf in London (1981) with that spirit in mind. London was horror central, of course, home of Jack the Ripper, Jekyll and Hyde, so I wanted all that Victorian Gothic, but I also wanted to show the real London of 1981.’
