Celebrate the 35th anniversary of the werewolf class of 1981! Come enjoy three "howl at the moon" classics for one low price.

WOLFEN - Albert Finney and Edward James Olmos star in this stylish neo-nature thriller. Finney is a New York cop who finds himself at odds against a pack of unnaturally intelligent and powerful wolves. It's like somebody through shapeshifters into your favorite Big Apple crime procedural! Can New York's finest square off against wolf gods? There's only one way to find out!

THE HOWLING - Dee Wallace (E.T.'s pal, CUJO's nemesis) is a television news anchor in Los Angeles. But she's also being stalked by a serial killer. After an elaborate trap is set for the killer in a porno theater, Wallace loses her memory. Then her therapist suggests that she and her husband visit "The Colony," a wooded resort for people with problems. Some of those problems might involve sex. And werewolves. And werewolves and sex. It's sleazy, smart, and completely self-obsessed all over. It's also the only movie in history to reference nine werewolf movies during its opening credits.

AN AMERICAN WERWOLF IN LONDON - John Landis’s cult classic feels as clever and original today as it did over 30 years ago. The story follows two college students, Jack and David, who walk down the wrong dark road while backpacking through the British countryside and are attacked by a mysterious beast. While Jack is killed, the surviving David, who now has continuing nightmares of being a hairy, fanged monster as well as visions of his massacred friend talking to him, must put the pieces together and figure out what happened that fateful night. Originally given the distinction by potential investors as too scary for a comedy and too funny for a horror film, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON defied generic definition when it was initially released. The confusion was understandable as the cleverness and intelligence of Landis’ script is matched by the influential and brilliant makeup effects of Rick Baker. The combination of genuine laughs and scares makes this lycanthropic tale one of the pioneering films in the horror-comedy genre.
