I was having a shower this morning and had this wonderful idea. I often get inspiration in the shower, not sure why. Maybe it’s because it’s just me, the sound of water and my music. No, I don’t have a waterproof radio, I just put my phone really loud on the benchtop next to the shower. Sometimes I sing along, but I get my inspiration when I’m quiet.
The idea was that I would love to see a digitalized version of ‘An American Werewolf in London.’ That would be awesome! This is a movie from 1981, so before the digital era. The graphics were amazing back then, but so much more could be done now. The movie is funny, but also has suspense, horror, romance and action. All the stuff I love in one movie! It would be a dream come true.
Just for your information, I took the following from Wikipdia:
- Academy Award – Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling (1982) (Won)
- Saturn Award – Saturn Award for Best Horror Film (1982) (Won)
- Saturn Award – Saturn Award for Best Make-up – Rick Baker – (Won)
- Saturn Award – Saturn Award for Best Actress – Jenny Agutter (Nomination)
- Saturn Award – Saturn Award for Best Writing – John Landis (Nomination)
At the 54th Academy Awards, An American Werewolf in London won the first-ever awarded Academy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Makeup. During the 1982 Saturn Awards, the film won for Best Horror Film and Best Make-up and nominated for Best Actress and Best Writing.
The American Film Institute nominated it for ranking on its 100 Laughs list. An Empire magazine poll of critics and readers named An American Werewolf in London as the 107th greatest film of all time in September 2008.
So, if any Twitterers in the film biz read this, please make it happen. And please put my name in the credits for the idea, would love to see my name in the credits…
