A Classy Little Horror Flick

5 years, 11 months ago at Aug 31 17:38
If you're expecting a big fest of werewolf carnage and bloodshed than you'll be highly dissapointed by this creepy horror film.

Based on the book of the same name The Howling tells the frightening tale of Karen White, a news reporter who's traumatizing encounter with a serial killer leaves her more than a little mentally unstable. Her psychiatrist reccomends she spend some time at ... read more

Description: Based on the best-selling novel by Gary Brandner, this horror film makes effective use of the classic werewolf tale. Dee Wallace stars as Karen White, a popular female reporter in Los Angeles who cannot escape the horror of a traumatic experience that she suffered while trying to capture Eddie Quist (Robert Ricardo), a dangerous serial killer. When her psychologist (Patrick Macnee) recommends a retreat to "The Colony," up the Northern California coast, she reluctantly agrees, hoping to recover from her nightmarish visions. Karen and her husband (Christopher Stone) arrive at the remote retreat and are shocked at the biz ... (more)

Movie Reviews (Part 1201-1250) (50 movies items)

" The other great werewolf movie made the same year ("An American Werewolf in London was the other. An unrecognizable Robert Picardo as a serial killer and other appearances from genre actors is great fun. Good atmosphere and a memorable ending also help this film that even has a love-making scene with the werewolves added in for good. Only the false scares make the film feel outdated."

" LAST WATCHED: 4/13/2017I wasn't sure how much like Netflix Shudder would end up being, but apparently Shudder also has deadlines for when titles leave their site, so I've got to get on my list. The Howling was one whose time was limited, so I had to crank out that one really quick. It was entertaining, containing some of the humor its adversary also had (American Werewolf in London). The special effects were dated, but the makeup and creature features make me long for the days w"

"En ollutkaan onnistunut koodaamaan soitinta aluevapaaksi. Nyt olen sen tehnyt. Kaikki hyvin ja Ulvonta on edelleen ihmissusigenren parhaimmistoa. Taitaa muuten jäädä Mansessa suunniteltu The Howling Marathon pitämättä. Kerron teille salaisuuden: Minusta tulee isä, joten kohta voin hyvästellä teidät ja elefantit lopullisesti. Vaikka tuskin se ketään edes kiinnostaa."
