The Howling Review
Written by: The Creature
The Howling is a 1981 werewolf classic that stars Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, Cujo, The Hills Have Eyes), Patrick Macnee (The Avengers, A View To Kill), and Dennis Dugan (Can't Buy Me Love, The New Adventures of Pipi Longstocking, and the director of great comedy films such as Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, and The Bench Warmers).
This horror classic is directed by Joe Dante, who is responsible for other great films like Pirhana (1978), Gremilns (1984), and The Burbs (1989).
The acting, direction, score, and special effects are all done very well in the film. The werewolf transformation in The Howling is fantastic. It is one of the best transformations I have ever seen, next to An American Werewolf In London.
The Howling is one of the best werewolf movies ever made. It is a must see among horror fans, so I highly recommend this film. It get's a 9/10 rating and a letter grade of a A-
