The Howling Reborn Plot Revealed

Goon

Today BD got their hands on the lowdown on the relaunching of The Howling franchise. For some, at first, this could come across as some good news. But when you hear the synopsis if you had any kind of love for the original film.. You will be shaking your head in disgust.

A teenager graduating from high school finally gets the girl he's been pining over for years, but unfortunately for him once he's landed the love of his life he discovers that he's cursed and will transform into a werewolf. Even worse, not only does he have his own internal conflict to contend with, he must also battle an entire pack of werewolves who are hellbent on killing both him and his new girlfriend.

This plot is kind of a reflection on how bad things have gotten for horror fans in general. Rather than making actual horror films they cater to high school kids. Another perfect example of this would be any number of the remakes that come out. The originals generally had a cast that consisted of older actors (The Omen, The Fog) that were replaced with younger, hipper actors.

If this is what they plan on filming.. You can bet I'm out. Filming is said to begin in Montreal this May.
