Equal parts comedy and horror, “An American Werewolf in London” is an acquired taste, but one whose cult classic status indicates it’s a flavor worth trying. The movie follows two teenage backpackers, who are attacked by a werewolf no one believes exists, while trekking around Britain. Some of the special effects will feel a bit dated to today’s viewers, but the storyline and editing still make the film a fun weekend watch.
