An American Werewolf in London script
Synopsis: David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), two American college students, are backpacking through Britain when a large wolf attacks them. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed. As David heals in the hospital, he's plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf. When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.

DAVID:

If you don't stop, I'm going to kill

you.

JACK:

I have to make love to her. It's

very simple. She has no choice really.

DAVID:

It just fascinates me that you can

spend so much energy on someone so

dull.

JACK:

It is impossible for a body like

that to be dull.

DAVID:

We've known Debbie what, since the

eighth grade? How many years of

foreplay is that?

JACK:

She says she 'likes me too much'.

David just laughs and laughs and laughs.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. EAST PROCTOR MAIN STREET - NIGHT

David and Jack entering East Proctor. It is brightly moonlit.

East Proctor consists of a few shops, all closed, a petrol

pump and a pub. East Proctor has a very small population and

the place looks empty. David and Jack enter the middle of

town and look about. The camera sees what they see. A few

shops, dark and shuttered. Light and laughter come from the

pub.

EXT. THE SLAUGHTERED LAMB - NIGHT

Its traditional shingle shows a ferocious wolf's bloody head

on a pike, and tells us the pub's name, "The Slaughtered

Lamb".
