    I’m looking forward to watching your review on The Howling: Reborn, aka Twilight knockoff number 421.

    4:10- NEWBORN PORN!!!

    7:33- At least THAT story didn’t become “One More Day.”

    8:37- I’m picturing Stephanie Meyer to also be in this scene, because like she does with vampires, she knows jack $h!t about werewolves.

    I’ve seen the Wolf Man remake, and enjoyed it.

    Is it just me, or does Will’s mother look like Tina Fey on 13:13?

    16:30- (Throws hands up in the air) Of course.

    19:37- Yeah. I definitely believe they’re standing in front of a burning building and NOT a green screen.

    Man, was this one bad as any of the Twilight movies?

    Nice ending. I was also thinking the same thing after your Howling 6 review. BTW, poor Checkers is having all sorts of pain this month.

    No there is actual violine and some good effects compared to Twilight!

    Oh my gosh, I totally know the female lead from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide!

    I liked her a lot better then.

    P.S. I just DIED of laughter at the ending XD

    Funny video but bad movie. To be honest is it worse then some of the other squeals or twilight not really.

    Love the fact that this film's suposed to be based on the book 'Howling II', yet has nothing to do with it.

    Is it just me, or did Will look like Harry Potter for the first half of the movie?

    Trying to work out how is more sadistic/masochistic - Bella, or Eliana. Either way, not people you'd like to be around.

    Love the show, Lupa - keep up the good work!

    Was that 80's Dan still in his Halloween costume at the end there? Did the Snob paradox him out AGAIN?

    I've seen this DVD in stores recently and didn't pay it much attention till I saw this review! It doesn't seem all that bad to me! It looks a 100Xs better than any of those Twilight movies! It doesn't make me want to kill tweens. It does make me want to punch an emo high-schooler or 2!
    Is it me or does the lead look like the guy who played Harry Potter!?
    The Alpha Werewolves in this movie look a lot like the Werewolves from the Underworld films! Like they just bought some of the costumes off that movie's set and changed it a little bit! Actually that sounds like something they'd do! I'm going with that!
    Actually, no offince Loopa but your costume here made to look like a female Tommy Wi(however int the hell it's spelled!) must be because she's wearing the same wig as that character!
    Yay, Brad is finnally getting to his ET porn reviews!!!
    And Phelous without facial hair looks like John Wayne Gacy for some reason to me! No offince!
    Also, that chase bit after the party in the movie looked like it was ripped off from An American Werewolf in Paris! And that is SAD!!!

    Checkers, no! ;_;
    Hilarious review, Alison. Aces. This looks like it may actually be worse than Twilight, but at least something HAPPENED in this movie, as opposed to Twilight. This probably won't get a sequel, but God help us all if it does.
    Also, seriously, why does the pointless bully archetype still exist in media? Because he sure doesn't IRL. NOBODY in high school acts that way "just because". Sure, I have heard of isolated incidents of, say, nearly an entire school just pointing and laughing at someone, thereby bringing to the forefront the problems with the bystander effect, but someone just cutting you because you looked at their girl the wrong way... Unless we're talking REALLY in the ghetto, which this high school CLEARLY was not, it just does not happen.
  • BirthdaySpiders  - Checkers, nooo
    I demand zombcheckers be allowed the chance to review 60 different types of meow mix.

    Damn it Lupa! Leave the kitties alone!

    Also, there was ANOTHER ET PORNO?

    Actually this movie is pretty cool = u = I liked it. And I hate Twilight. So it has nothing Twilight-ish to it. The werewolves are badass. The characters are believable, well, most of them. The mother's motivations are WTF-ish to me = 3 =

    But the movie was pretty good. It's been a while since I saw a good Werewolf movie.

    I was really pissed about the protagonist not knowing about werewolves. Seriously?! Seriously movie?!

    I actually liked this movie. Sure, the horror part was kind of meh but the relationship part was really well done. If the characters in the Twilight series had this kind of chemistry, it would make the movies actually enjoyable.

    Another Twilight rip off for ERod to review in next year's Halloween Havoc.

    Honestly I have to agree with you Lupa this movie just seems like a middle of the road kind of thing and if they had gone with the "We're going to kill ourselves with the rest of the werewolves for the sake of humanity, oh btw we're now in love because it's one of those things." then the movie would have at least been so bad it's good kind of movie. Also sequel bait? Ok sure, why not...I'm sure that was thought out somehow as a "giant were-wolf cult that plans on taking over the world" kind of thing but hey I'm glad we're being spared that kind of bs. Also that CGI Death Scene of the guy falling down? Priceless. Just...just priceless.

    Wait wait wait, back up there. "Oh don't get me wrong, it's a Twilight movie it's just not a very good one"

    But that would imply there's such a thing as a good Twilight movie...

    KITTY! : )

    And yeah, Happy Halloween!

    Great review of a twice-bad movie: once for being yet another sequel, and again for trying to cash in on Twilight. But you made it fun to hear about at least.

    Fun cameos by Cinema Snob & Phelous too!

    Lupa looks like Eric Idle in that wig...

    So the kid from this movie is some kind of Peter Parker/Harry Potter/MacGyver hybrid?
  • jkthedj

    I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that Lupa is dressed as Kate Hodge from "She Wolf of London" (Though playing the theme song for the "Howling Month" bumper might be a hint as well).
  • jkthedj  - Nevermind...

    I "Captain Obvious'd" myself before seeing the ending to the video. My bad.

    It's over? We'll never again hear you talk about

    DA HOWLING?

    Say it isn't so!
  • Alex DeB
    great review ^^

    About Rolan... his accent is french canadian.
    he's a young star, who's actually a very decent actor (when he speak french anyway ) over here, and is the muse of a young very pretentious film maker who's only 2 movies ended up at the Cannes Festival
    as for how he ended up in the Howling, I have no clue.
  • jjlb84
    You didn't bring up the weird subplot about the dad giving him silver nitrate pills, the mom was all bitchy about how they were keeping him week, which seemed to imply the dad knew he was a werewolf from birth and it was odd how him ingesting it for 18 years didn't kill him but grinding a little into a bullet is insta-death.

    LOL, funny review and the closing made me laugh till my sides hurt. "I'm you!" I would also like to say what a phenomenal job you have done, Lupa, in going through this series and making these entertaining reviews. The only thing I found disappointing with was the lack of a Naked Gun 33 1/2 finger hotdog ref. Anyway, Happy Halloween.


    Garlic sandwich indeed!

    At least this movie's Bella is easier to identify as an unlikable hoe...

    And why the hell is it so hard to make good-looking werewolves Oo ?

    *SIGH* Really? Damn you Twilight! is there nothing you won't ruin?!?!?

    Geeze, this movie jumps around so fast I think I got whiplash...

    Zombie werewolves, flamethrowers, it could have been good, but it's implausible and STUPID!

    (Though the werewolf effects aren't bad... but maybe not referred to as such. Maybe as goblins or something?)

    Hahahahaha!! That ending was hilarious XD

    Congrats on getting through all "THE HOWLING O.O" movies and Happy Halloween! *candy confetti*

    About the whole not turining into a werewolf till that party incident i think i have the whole thing wrapped up neatly in a nice tidy bundle for you. :) I posted this on your blip but i don't think you saw it.
    I knew there was a reference in the movie at some point even tho i was really tired when i watched it i was in a state of everything going black and then suddenly jolting awake. That ever happen to anyone else? There was something that was poisoning him but it wasn't intentional. See below
    http://i.imgur.com/ jWGx4.png
    Its a medication for panic attacks and anxiety called Argentum nitricum which contains you guessed it (drum roll please)... silver nitrate!
    Oh man i put way more thought into this movie than it deserves besides just to take a screen cap of it was near impossible because its only on the screen for a split second, talk about subtle! The night he went to that party i'm guessing he didn't take his meds when he got home so the transformation began the next morning.
    I can't believe this much thought was put into this movie so it wouldn't have that plot hole.
    I deserve a cookie.. or maybe severe blunt force trauma to the head for thinking about something in a movie like this so in depth.
    Oh yea btw good review i'm kinda glad it didn't have an overly complicated storyline wrap up.
