Halloween Movie Monday: An American Werewolf in London

This weekend walking around Soho in the rain, I didn't see a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand. However, I did see witches, vampires, and zombies milling about on their way to and from Halloween festivities.

It is exciting to see today get bigger and bigger in the UK and this year there was noticeably more Halloween goodies in stores. The one truly lacking facet (besides candy corn) of the holiday is all the great Halloween themed movies on TV. 

Hocus Pocus, Halloween and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown are all the favorites I am giving a miss this year.

Though I am not dressing up today, I decided to celebrate in expat theme by watching the horror classic An American Werewolf in London.

Watching this movie and maybe singing a few Warren Zevon verses is how I am spending my Halloween.

Tomorrow November is here and I will still be in the holiday spirit- trying to buy discounted candy corn at every expat's favorite grocery store Partridges and hopefully my hands on Model's Own new Beetlejuice collection that comes out tomorrow.
Look at that gold-green on the left!

Happy Halloween!


  1. I keep seeing that movie listed on Lovefilm, but I wasn't sure if it was good or not. Maybe we will watch it tonight in honor of Halloween!

    And I definitely agree about Hocus Pocus, Dave didn't even know what it was :(

  2. HAPPY HALLOWEEN Danielle!!! An American Werewolf in London is an excellent feature to watch. It's a great classic! WOW, those model's own colors are awesome! Love the orangey, bluish, purplish ones too. I'd love to see a post on that if you try it. Have a great evening and enjoy. ((HUG))

  3. Kristin- it is gory- but a classic!

    Kim- I am all over that post ;)
