Two American college students on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists.
Alex reads "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" to David in the hospital, and David is shown reading it before he transforms into a werewolf, John Landis was a huge fan of the book. He tried to adapt it into a movie.
That way is Proctor, and over here is the moors. I go this way.
Jack: Thanks for the ride, sir. You have lovely sheep.
Truck Driver: Boys, keep off the moors, stick to the roads. The best to ya...
David: Thanks again.
David: We'll miss you.
David: Bye girls...
When David turns into a werewolf for the first time and starts killing people, his fangs and mouth are covered in blood. Later, when he wakes up in the zoo, he doesn't have any blood on his lips and he certainly should have tasted blood in his mouth.
All characters and events in this film are fictitious. Any similarity to actual events or persons, living, dead, or undead, is purely coincidental.
The film was edited to receive an "R" rating in the U.S. The love scene with David and Jenny was toned down. Food coming through Jack's mouth as he was eating toast was also removed.
