Despite what some people will think when they see this film, this is not a spoof of horror films. It seems to be a conventional horror film, with a razor-edge sense of humor. Two American friends (David Naughton and Griffin Dunne) are walking the English moors, when a werewolf attacks them. The locals come and kill the beast, but not before Naughton is bitten and Dunne is killed. Later, while Naughton is being treated for his wounds, Dunne comes back in ghost form, warning Naughton that he will turn into a werewolf. Not taking heed to his warning, Naughton tries to go about an ordinary life in London. Eventually, he turns into a werewolf and starts roaming the streets of London, killing British citizens.

Despite some terrifying scenes, there are plenty of moments with comedy from Naughton and Dunne. Rick Baker's oscar-winning make-up is the highlight of the film, which shows Naughton transforming from man to werewolf. Wait till you see the climax. Though the scenes of transformation are a little long, the film is still enjoyable enough to keep your interest.
