Two American college students on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists.
The total duration of Composer Elmer Bernstein's original score for the film is a total of seven minutes, much to the surprise of film music aficionados, who have wanted for a release of this music for years. The music is more in the vein of transitional orchestral cues in between the pre-recorded songs featured throughout the film, to give the film more dramatic weight where needed.
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 opening scenes, David and Jack reveal they are in northern England, and all the locals speak with Yorkshire accents. Yet the terrain is far too mountainous for Yorkshire (the scenes were filmed in Wales).
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy star as themselves.
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.
