Universal Home Video brings us "An American Werewolf In London" in a beautiful widescreen transfer that is enhanced for 16x9 television sets. The transfer is very clean and devoid of any speckles or defects, although I noticed two broken splices, causing the image to jump for a split second. Grain is evident in a number of shots, but other than that, the presentation is absolutely clean and free of blemishes, giving this film an incredibly vivid look that is very film-like. The colors of the transfer are fantastic. From the subtle gradients of the layered fog in the moors, the atmospheric blue hues of the night, to the natural fleshtones, all the way to the stark red blood, this DVD brings out the best of the movie in vibrant tones and tinges like never before. The level of detail is also very good, allowing you to take in every bit of Baker’s staggering effects work and the film’s skillful cinematography. Blacks are absolutely solid and shadows never break up, loosing detail. The result is a bold image that is extremely dimensional and has a lot of depth, just the right mix for a horror film in which what you don’t see is just as important as what you do see. The compression is also without flaws, maintaining all definition of the transfer without introducing any compression artifacts. DVD FILE............ Originally released on DVD in 1998 by Artisan Entertainment (then known as LIVE), that disc boasted a non-anamorphic transfer minted from the same master used for the then-recent laserdisc. However, it was still quite good, and a noticeable improvement over the previous, largely horrendous VHS releases. But the rights to American Werewolf have now reverted back to Universal, who are celebrating the film's 20th anniversary with a new DVD release starring a fresh anamorphic transfer struck from a new print. Unfortunately, as a big fan of the film, I'm a bit disappointed with the quality of the this transfer. The print actually looks a bit dirtier than the Artisan release, with heavier grain and weaker shadow detail. Some shots, especially some of the more gloomy exteriors, look noticeably more grainy and print wear and tear is evident. Blacks are still solid and colors fairly well saturated, but hues appear a bit oversaturated at times and thus rather fuzzy. Fleshtones appear accurate. The amount of edge enhancement is less severe than the Artisan release, as is compression pixel breakup, but sharpness is wanting and overall the film looks more murky. Contrast is also below par. While not a terrible transfer, I was just expecting better.
