I watched THE HOWLING the other night. Sadly, I had never seen it before (I know, I know...). While slow and dated, in the end I felt it was one of my new favorite WEREWOLF movies. Sure, there're aren't alot to choose from, but this had some killer transformation scenes (although some took waaaay too long) and the Werewolves themselves looked pretty sweet; they had the radical attitude I imagined Werewolves having. The film also weaves into itself seedy 70s porn and seedy secret societies; an interesting approach, paralleling it with the Werewolf concept and lore. But they totally dropped the ball with the ending VISUALS (Teen Wolf!), but the idea was awesome. While not a good movie, it has great Werewolves (when they eventually show up). Give it a viewing! It's perfect for Halloween Season (only a week left!).
