The Howling

The Howling ★★★

It always seems like werewolves rank the lowest in the movie monster hierarchy. Are there any truly great werewolf movies? Maybe not, but this was fun. 

This movie feels way more 70s than 80s and part of it takes place in what looks like a kindof taxi driver era New York and behind the scenes of a news broadcast. All very cool stuff. The effects are mad, sometimes funny and occasionally quite disgusting and while the Joe Dante humour isn’t always apparent it kinda sneaks up on you by the end. Ya know, like a scary werewolf or whatever.
