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.
