American Werewolf In London, Nightmare Nazi Demons

The above are screenshots from "An American Werewolf In London" one of my favorite horror films. I'll be adapting this scene into an artwork for an illustration feature titled "These Bloody Moments" in the upcoming second issue of Electric Ant. You can see what some of the other artists involved will be adapting in this brief article at the Electric Ant blog.

The bullet flare in the center will be removed. I originally had a more detailed scene in mind with decapitated heads, burning walls, butchered children and smashed tvs still playing the Muppet show. But I kept coming back to this door frame scene. I love how John Landis cropped these four nightmarish characters into that tight shot, still managing to show all four of their halloween mask heads.

Great choice for a scene.
