An American Werewolf in London (1981)

Director: John Landis

Starring: David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, Jenny Agutter

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Beware the Moon

Plot: Two American tourists in Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists.

My rating: 9/10

Will I watch it again? YES!

I'd swear I wrote about this one after seeing it, I think, for the first time last October. I remember bits and pieces of the first half hour but that's it. I had no fucking clue that this is as all kinds of amazing that it is. It's hilarious, the special effects are great (fuck CGI), it's well-paced and it's over before you know it. I can see why it's held in such high esteem. Great fun!
