NEWSFLASH: Happy Birthday – John Landis
‘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.’
Happy 70th birthday, John Landis. Born August 3rd, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
