Two American college students on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists.
Both David Naughton and Griffin Dunne recall audiences being confused by the post-attack scene where David looks to the right and sees the naked dead man with bullet wounds. He's the werewolf, obviously, but the paucity of werewolf films leading up to 1981 apparently left people clueless as to how they operate.
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...
In the final scene an RT bus is shown as being in service in Piccadilly Circus. In fact, the last RTs were withdrawn from service in London in 1979.
Lyncanthrope Films Limited wishes to extend its heartfelt congratulations to Lady Diana Spencer and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales on the occasion of their marriage - July 29th 1981.
Due to a mastering error, the second Region 2 DVD (the 2-Disc Special Edition) has been edited to remove the scene where David calls home and speaks to his sister just before he attempts to cut his wrists with a pen knife
