AWIL Still Picked as Best Practical Transformation Effect

It’s no surprise that John Landis’s “An American Werewolf In London” was picked for the best movie transformation effect in the non-scientific PDXWerewolf.com Twitter poll.

The poll posted on Wednesday and over the course of 24 hours, 48 voters have made their picks.

The pack leader comes to as no surprise. 69 percent chose the 1981 Academy Award winning comedy-horror for the Makeup category, An American Werewolf In London.

Coming in second is the 1981 horror-thriller The Howling, which received 17 percent of the votes.

The vaguely “other” category received 10 percent of the votes. On Twitter, @Lord_Stabdagger suggested the 1984 fantasy-horror Company of Wolves. The BBC version of television series “Being Human” werewolf transformation scene involving George was another selection, but the poll asked for movie practical transformation effects.

Coming in last at 4 percent was the 2014 independent Canadian film about a drunken sheriff deputy who becomes a drunken werewolf, WolfCop.
