Ask any horror fan what is the most jawdropping, utterly amazing and downright frightening werewolf transformation scene ever filmed, and it is very likely they will respond with An American Werewolf in London.

Landis’ Son Max gave his Dad an extra special birthday present recently by remaking his Dad’s legendary transformation scene, and you can watch the results below.
Yes the video is quite amusing, but is also showcases just how incredible that particular scene was, and how for its time it had an incredible impact, and to this day has been copied many times but never bettered. The full video is below, along with a making of, but what is really fun to watch is the comparison video also included below.
The video was directed by Travis Betz (Joshua)

It was recently John Landis’s birthday, and son Max has decided to give him a very special birthday present: stepping into David Naughton’s shoes and re-enacting the transformation scene from An American Werewolf in London. We probably won’t win an Oscar for Best Makeup for this homemade effort, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
