David Kessler (David Naughton) and Jack Goodman (Griffin Dunne) arrive in Northern England at the beginning of their college vacation for a three month walking tour. One night, they become lost in the rain on the desolate English moors. Looking up at the moon, they hear an unearthly howl. They turn to run as a huge animal tears out of the darkness and attacks Jack. Three weeks later David awakens to a new nightmare: Jack, who was killed, returns to warn David that a werewolf was their assailant - and that David has become the last of their werewolves!



  • The best Werewolf film ever.

    By Mykan Wolf
    Now this is a werewolf film, not Twilight or any other pretender "ok The Howling isn't far behind" but AAWIL just raise's the bar where other's even with today's high budget CGI couldn't muster. And it's a shame because this was made in the 80's the early 80's at that and capture's british culture so well. Amazing FX thank to Genius Rick Baker a great soundtrack and directed by John Landis and it show's.
  • Too late Apple!

    By Faithur
    I see Apple have finally made this brilliant film available to buy after many, many months of people requesting this. Unfortunately for them, Amazon now have included it on their Prime membership! I don’t have to buy the film now! You missed a trick there Apple! You could have had my money for this film but you blew it. My advice - PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THE REVIEWS APPLE!!!
