""Repression. Repression is the father of neurosis, of self-hatred. Now, stress results when we fight against our impulses. We've all heard people talk about animal magnetism, the natural man. the noble savage, as if we'd lost something valuable in our long evolution into civilized human beings. Now there's a good reason for this." I've often said that the Howling is pretty much the quintessential 80's monster movie. With its low budget roots, nods to the genre, and amazing special effects, It "

" One of my favorite werewolf movies, the special effects are really great as well. I love the odd combination of humor and scares, that the film has."

"1/17 Rewatch Synopsis: After a bizarre and near fatal encounter with a serial killer, a television newswoman is sent, for therapeutic reasons, to a remote mountain resort whose residents may not be what they seem. It's been some time since I've seen this one and, if it weren't for Netflix, it might have been even longer. See, for reasons known only to the ghost-in-the-machine at Netflix (or possibly the people in charge...who knows, really), they are offering up The Howling series for streamin"

"October 5 "Silver bullets or fire, that's the only way to get rid of the damn things. They're worse than cock-a-roaches." This is probably my favorite werewolf movie. It has one of the best werewolf transformation scenes and it had some great writing and scary scenes. Not to be missed by any horror fan."

My Top 15 Halloween Favorites: Werewolves (15 movies items)

"During one of the driest spells in terms of quality for werewolf movies, 1981 proved to be a good year for moonlit monsters. For it had not just one film that showed that the subject wolfmen made for good modern cinema, but two; American Werewolf In London and this one, The Howling. And while Howling may not be as famous as American Werewolf for it's groundbreaking special effects depicting the transformation from man to beast, it still held it's own in helping to show that when it comes to depi"
