See What Classic Movie Scene Max Landis Re-created for His Father's Birthday

Aug 22, 2014

 

Chronicle screenwriter and A-class nerd Max Landis, son of director John Landis, recently gave his father a birthday present he won’t soon forget. In a homemade (or sweded, if you prefer) version of An American Werewolf in London, the elder Landis’ 1981 film, the younger Landis re-creates the famous transformation scene.

This is amazing because papa Landis won critical acclaim for the sequence (spooky in its realism, for the time), featuring Oscar-winning special effects by Rick Baker. Young Landis remade the scene shot for shot, depicting David Naughton’s character’s visceral transformation into a howling werewolf. You can watch the homemade scene alone and in a side-by-side comparison, below. The plastic Dracula teeth and stuffed-animal effects really sell the DIY stuff. Both Landis men actually share a birthday, making this a truly touching tribute in a very talented family.
