The beginning of the film is quite slow, but other than that it's a great movie and better than all the "sequels," though I do like some of them. II is a guilty pleasure, III is too but is even more out there, IV is really just a mediocre remake of the original, V is probably the best of the sequels, VI I haven't seen for a long time, but I remember it being ok, and the last one is better off forgotten. Will see the new one, The Howling: Reborn, out of curiosity.

I wasn't a big fan of The Howling when I was younger, but it has grown on me over the years.
I hear bad things about the remake. It sounds like it's going to be all Twilightified.

I felt so sorry for the character. I also thought the dream sequences with Karen trying to remember her encounter with Eddie to be very effective and riveting. The music score during those scenes is fantastic. All in all The Howling is a riveting classic and one of the alltime best horror movies ever.

9/10

I saw this recently and enjoyed it. Although the first half was slow, the characters were quirky enough to maintain my interest. I'm about to delve into Pt. 2.

The first movie is the only one worth watching.

If you want a good laugh the third one is always available.

I could never get into the first Howling movie. It seems too campy for my tastes, particularly everything happening at the camp(lol, I just noticed the pun) retreat. The werewolf effects were cool, but what was up with Dee Wallace turning into a were-shih zsu at the end? LOL!

The second Howling had better atmosphere, IMO, but a more crappier story(and acting).

The third Howling was almost pure comedy.

The fourth was like a psuedo remake of the first, and while I liked the individual looks and transformations of the werewolves(reminded me of the vampires in Fright Night, as they all kinda looked different and unique), it was pretty boring.

The fifth Howling is probably the best one of the series. I enjoyed it the most, as well as the spooky castle atmosphere.

Those are the only ones I've seen, so I can't comment on the others, though considering from what I've heard, it might be great that I steered clear of them.
