Feature Films : Blue Moon Rising: A lifetime achievement award for John Landis

Blue Moon Rising: A lifetime achievement award for John LandisTo celebrate both the 30th anniversary of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON — widely hailed as one of the greatest genre films of the ’80s — and its maker’s welcome return to feature filmmaking after a 12-year hiatus with the grave-robbing black-comedy period piece BURKE & HARE, Fantasia will be giving a lifetime achievement award to the one and only John Landis. The man behind such cult classics as THE BLUES BROTHERS, ANIMAL HOUSE, TRADING PLACES, KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, INNOCENT BLOOD, SCHLOCK, THREE AMIGOS, INTO THE NIGHT and Michael Jackson’s groundbreaking “Thriller” music video, Landis is a lifelong fantasy/horror fan whose work across all genres explodes with personality, wit and charm. We’re glad to have him back and we cherish what he’s given us. Cheers, John! – Mitch Davis
