The Mystery of “The Howling Reborn” and the Boring Plot Synopsis

A. Quinton — Jul. 21st 2010

Buried three pages deep in the Moonstone Entertainment web site is this synopsis of “The Howling Reborn”, the upcoming remake of “The Howling”:

On the eve of his high school graduation, unremarkable Will Kidman finally bonds with the girl he has long yearned for, reclusive Eliana Wynter. But he also discovers a dark secret from his past… that he is about to become a werewolf. Now, in an effort to fight destiny and save their love as well as their lives, they must battle not only Will’s growing blood lust but an army of fearsome beasts bent on killing them… and then, us all.

Is it just me or does this have nothing at all in common with the original film? Is this just an attempt to piggyback a new (and dull-sounding) werewolf movie on the name recognition of the Howling series?

  • Sounds interesting! I think I may watch it if they re-make it. I hope its not too gory though.

    Why do they have to call it “The Howling Reborn” if it has nothing to do with the original? I think you’re right on with your name recognition comment.

    If anything it sounds like it could be an improved remake of ‘Teen Wolf’…
    I’d still see it though. My love of lycans makes me do it.
