SHV - S12E03 - An American Werewolf In London (1981)

 This week on Season 12: Wolfamania, we wrap up our look into the year of the wolf, 1981, with quite possibly the most famous Werewolf movie of all time next to the original Wolf Man.  It's definitely the only other werewolf film to get full merchandising lines, action figure lines and even a spot at Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights. It is also the film that propelled special effects artist Rick Baker to superstardom and inspired the Michael Jackson, "Thriller" video. It won the fist ever academy award for special effects, is considered an all time classic and is some how still underrated. It is our distinct pleasure to bring you our official episode on John Landis' "AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON."

All that plus our musical guest, coming to us all the way from Mexico courtesy of Horror Pain Gore Death Productions, is the legendary death/thrash band Mortuary with their song "Holy War" from the incredible compilation record Death Metal Power From Beyond, available now at horrorpaingoredeath.com

SHV - S12E02 - Wolfen (1981)

 Wolfamania continues with our look into the 2nd entry into the 1981 werewolf movie craze with a quite different take on that myhthology as we watch WOLFEN directed by Michael Wadleigh. We'll discuss how this pure horror meets crime drama hybrid packs a unique punch that sets it apart from its contemporaries, part of which is its embarassment of character-actor riches including the likes of Edward James Almos, Tom Newnan, Gregory Hines and Albert Finney.
