From the writer and director of the award-winning documentary 'BEWARE THE MOON', Paul Davis, and Dead Mouse Productions Ltd, comes BEWARE THE MOON - The Story of An American Werewolf in London. This new, limited edition (1,000 copies), 200 page, all colour, hardback book delves deeper into the memories and experiences of over 35 members of the cast and crew, including John Landis, Rick Baker, David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, Griffin Dunne, Frank Oz and many more. Many people have said to Paul, “But the documentary was so extensive.” Paul is still very proud of the documentary, and of course there’s footage in there that you can’t put in a book, but trust us, in terms of stories, images and archive materials… this book blows it away on all fronts!
When it comes to Werewolf movies, there is one movie that has transcended all others for the past 35-years. AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON stands like a colossus in the 'full moon' genre and continues to both tickle and terrify fans new and old across the globe. Not only did it revolutionise special makeup effects, this much loved cult classic spawned a multitude of horror flicks, including MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER.
BEWARE THE MOON details, comprehensively, the journey of director John Landis' dream movie to the silver screen and the exotic events that served as inspiration for this seminal tale of lycanthropy. The book features over 300 photos, many of which have never before been published, and serves as the ultimate tribute to John Landis, Special Makeup Effects legend Rick Baker and to all those who contributed to the film's success and 35-year legacy.
