Last night, just under 300 people crammed into the Prince Charles Cinema to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the John Landis classic 'AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON'. The moon was full, the atmosphere was electric as I introduced the brand new 2016 restoration to the sold out crowd, on the very day that it opened in London back in 1981.
Prior to the film, I was introduced to the stage by FrightFest's Paul McEvoy and rather than drone on about the BEWARE THE MOON (the original intention for the screening before the book sold out), I jumped straight on the phone, FaceTimed the film's star, David Naughton, and let HIM introduce the movie!
After a short trailer reel and a surprise presentation of Michael Jackson's THRILLER, the crowd cheered as AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON once again played in London's Leicester Square. The presentation was absolutely stunning, and the film has, simply, never looked better!
A few thank yous... first of all to Paul Vickery and the staff at The PCC for hosting the event, David Naughton for being a good sport and introducing the film, Paul McEvoy for being on hand to bring me on stage, my beautiful fiance Lydia and to my friends who joined in the fun.
The Prince Charles and I have already agreed to give the same treatment to THE LOST BOYS next year - so keep an eye out for that!
