** As Jack says of the pentangle at ''The Slaughtered Lamb'': "Universal Studios and Lon Chaney, Jr., maintained that's the mark of ''[[Film/TheWolfMan1941 The Wolf Man]]!''"

''[=AWiL=]'' has infuriated some Britons, particularly [[OopNorth Northerners]], with its somewhat cartoonish and stereotypical depictions of life in the UK; it is possible that this was a deliberate echoing on Landis's part of the sketchily researched versions of Britain found in the Universal horror cycles of the Thirties and Forties.

''An American Werewolf in London'' is a [[TheEighties 1981]] Creator/{{Universal}} comedy/horror film written and directed by Creator/JohnLandis. (It was advertised with the {{Tagline}}, "From the director of ''Film/AnimalHouse'', a different sort of animal.") Starring David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, Creator/JennyAgutter, and John Woodvine, the film featured special effects by master make-up artist Rick Baker. (Creator/FrankOz also made a cameo appearance, [[MuppetCameo as did]] [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy]] -- not to mention Landis himself.) It was shot on location in the UK, with UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} standing in for the Yorkshire moors, and "The Black Swan" pub in UsefulNotes/{{London}} for "The Slaughtered Lamb." The background music consisted of a number of cannily deployed popular songs (all of which have "moon" in the title), bolstered with some eleven minutes of moodily atmospheric music by Music/ElmerBernstein.

* TheEndOrIsIt: Despite David [[spoiler: being killed in the end]], there is still the very distinct possibility that he wound up impregnating Alex during their night of passion together, and if that is the case, it will mean that the child will be born with David's lycanthropic blood in their veins and will eventually become a werewolf themselves, which makes the DownerEnding infinitely more sad to think about, as it makes David's [[spoiler: death]] all for naught, as the werewolf bloodline continues to live on in his unborn son/daughter, which would leave Jack and all the people he killed still trapped in limbo, and leaves Alex in the terrible, unenviable position of having to deal with their lycanthropic child on her own.

Or maybe, just maybe, lycanthropy works like it does in [[PeterIsTheWolf Peter is The Wolf]] and Alex will learn first-hand what David went through the following month.

* DawsonCasting: David Naughton was 30 and Griffin Dunne was 26. While their ages are never stated, their characters are referred to as "boys" and appear to be college kids in their early 20s.
