“The Howling Reborn” Blu-ray Cover & Release Date

A. Quinton — Sep. 1st 2011

Everybody’s favourite long-running, often-execrable werewolf film franchise is about to get another installment (or is it a reboot?). On October 18th The Howling: Reborn arrives on the optical format of your choice, as long as you choose either DVD or Blu-ray. I’d go with the Blu-ray – the dialogue in the trailer and the story described on the Anchor Bay web site don’t instill a lot of confidence, so if it turns out to be a Marsupials-style stinker I can turn the sound off and enjoy Adrien Morot‘s werewolf designs in silent freeze-framed comfort.

Hmm. Adrien once emailed me with some vague-but-promising comments regarding the work he and his colleagues did on this film, but I don’t see Reborn in his otherwise-comprehensive IMDB credits. What does that mean?

In any case, The Howling: Reborn. October 18th. It probably won’t have any Howling II-style “pack bonding” scenes, but it might still be good.

    Despite its many other failings, you gotta at least give Marsupials cred for epic insanity.

    Anyways, it looks pretty predictable but I’ll probably give it a watch.

  • I had the chance to see it, and it’s really dissaponting. is just a teenage love story that happens to have a few frames with a very poor werewolf costume. there’s no transformation sequence or any really remarkable about this movie. maybe the worst on the franchise.
