YMMV: An American Werewolf in London
- Awesome Music: Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising" makes a huge impression, somehow, despite the fact that not much really happens while it is playing. (The great transformation scene does not take place to this tune, but to Sam Cooke's version of "Blue Moon.") Also, Elmer Bernstein composed about eleven minutes of music for the film, which was so good that the technoband Meco based an entire album on it.
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Some believe David (in his werewolf form) pulled a Suicide by Cop at the end after Alex reaches out to him.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: Rick Baker, so much that he won the inaugural Academy Award for Best Makeup in 1981.
