Beware the moon!

One of my all-time favourite films - I am delighted to have in stock this original first draft, with alternate ending, of An American Werewolf in London

 John Landis' cult 80s horror-comedy An American Werewolf in London starred David Naughton as David Kessler, an American student backpacking through England who gets bitten by a werewolf and tragically becomes one himself. Creature F/X master Rick Baker's extraordinary man-to-wolf transformations won Baker the first Academy Award for makeup when it became a regular yearly category.

In this first draft script, the movie ends with a ghoulish vaudeville-style musical revue in the afterlife where the film's deceased characters sing "Shine on Harvest Moon!"
