I really want this reboot to do well, as the sequels to Joe Dante's classic The Howling were pretty grim and not in a good way. As they have Adrien Morot on board for the werewolf practical FX I'm expecting good things.
I'm quite skeptical on the synopsis there is just something that doesn't sit quite right with me. I really hope it changes my skepticism and kicks some ass!
