Bravo. Someone knows what they're on about.

So many people bang on about the effects in AWIL, but that's only because the film was released first.

If it were the other way around people would be praising the shit out of The Howling.

Both movies use the SAME effect. The same effect that Landis would use again for Michael Jacksons Thriller video.



I love both movies.

Probably the first werewolf movie I saw & I've loved them ever since. Great FX, still pretty scary also one of the best werwolf flicks.

I've always preferred the camp classic Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf. You just can't beat Christopher Lee in wraparound sunglasses.

The Howling is an awesome werewolf movie. "Come on bright boy..... don't you know anything?"

Robert Picardo is great in this film. It's hard for me to decide which I like better The Howling or American Werewolf In London.

I liked the original Howling. It's the best of the series. The werewolf looked great! It was well shot. It's one of the better werewolf movies out there. Never saw the second movie. The third movie was......eh. It was weird. I didn't despise it, but I didn't love it. The fourth movie was utter garbage. The fifth movie was good, but ruined by the over-done musical score. The sixth movie was decent, but the werewolf looked terrible. Never saw the seventh movie. Though I have heard it is infamous for being one of the worst movies ever made. Never saw Howling:Reborn.
