An American Werewolf in London

Two teenagers visiting Britain are attacked by a werewolf while hiking in the wilderness.

David Kessler (David Naughton) and Jack Goodman (Griffin Dunne) are two American teens visiting London on a backpacking excursion.  When they enter a melancholy pub and inquire about a pentagram on its wall, it marks the beginning of a torturous adventure for both boys.

  The pub goers warn Jack and David not to deviate from the road's path, nor to come in contact with the moon.  When they accidentally break both of these rules they are attacked by a vicious animal, killing David while transforming Jack into a bloodthirsty werewolf roaming the streets of London.

  An American Werewolf in London won an Oscar.  It was a commercial success, earning $61 million at theaters across the globe -- easily recuperating its $10 million budget.
