My dear lycanthropes!
Did you all know that I just LOVE sequels? Particularly the second entry in the series — it is often beaming with the energy from the first film. Although Howling 2 loses some of the masterfulness of the original it creates it’s own atmosphere and lore. There are some great things going on in this film that make it a necessary addition to this Halloween list. Including a wonderful werewolf orgy. I also love the tagline, Your Sister is a werewolf! Sometimes you just need to howl.
Howling 2 / Dir. Philippe Mora (sounds foreign)/ 1985
Howling 2 has some amazing….wait a second, this is a pile of garbage! Yes, the film is not really that good at all. HOWEVER, it has some amazing sequences and shots in the film that go unnoticed. It also has one of the best horror film posters to emerge from the 80’s. I can’t help but be fascinated by this film from the horrible swipe editing techniques to a drunken werewolf orgy! There is a charm here and it can only be appreciated by being drunk at a slumber party.
