Duckyworth's Thoughts: The Howling ~ 1981

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 26, 2014, 10:45 AM
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Watching: Suspiria
  • Playing: New Super Mario Bros
  • Eating: Thai Noodles
  • Drinking: Cider


Ah… listen…. The children of the night…. What music they make! :evillaugh: For tonight, another Horrendously Horrific Hallowe’en of Horrendous Horror is upon us….

Yep, the time has come for us to return to the werewolf realm of horror – remember… Even he who is pure of heart, and says his prayers at night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the moon is shining bright…. :evillaugh: Now, I’ve admitted in the past that I prefer vampires to werewolves, but at the same time, I can’t help but feel a certain FEAR whenever I watch werewolf films… There’s just something about the transformation scenes in these films in particular that just TERRIFY me whenever I watch them, and of course, I like the idea that people can show wolf like tendencies and characteristics in these films that can become pretty disturbing as the film goes on. Ginger Snaps, An American Werewolf in London, The Wolfman and Dog Soldiers are some examples of werewolf films I’ve seen in the past that have stayed with me for quite a while. :D But in all those films, it hasn’t yet dealt with one bit of subject matter – can werewolves keep their powers contained? As in, is there somewhere that werewolves can go to seek professional help? Like a psychiatrist for werewolves? Well…. Time for us to find out, as Joe Dante takes the directing chair to give us…..

THE HOWLING! :iconwerewolfplz:

 

Yep, directed by the same man who bought us Gremlins, this film is another winner from Joe Dante. Seriously, DANTE – what a perfect surname for a horror film director! :iconevilgrinplz: Before he worked on a cautionary tale involving Mogwai being subjected to Western Civilisation, he directed a film which was actually what piqued Stephen Spielberg’s interest, and was what inspired him to ask Joe Dante to direct Gremlins. Yes, a fun little fact about The Howling is that it is one of Stephen Spielberg’s favourite films, and it is what inspired him to ask Joe Dante to direct Gremlins. :wow: BTU how do I see this film? Well, like with The Borderlands, it may not be my number one favourite film, but I was very entertained while watching it, and also, like The Borderlands, there was one scene in the film that scared me to no abandon… :ohnoes: People who have seen this film can probably imagine what that scene was, but until we get there, let’s see what happens when werewolves undergo therapy… Hopefully it won’t be as disturbing as when the Adult Party Cartoon version of Ren Hoek underwent therapy… ^^;

 

The film begins with Karen White, a Los Angeles news reporter undergoing a plan prepared by the news reporters and the local police to arrest a serial killer known as Eddie Quist. Karen is played by an actress named Dee Wallace – and let me tell you, even though, like in quite a few horror films at the time, she’s the female lead who is, unfortunately, rather vulnerable – but while it is a little bit of a pet peeve of mine that, until Silence of the Lambs, female leads in horror films were, for the most part, pretty damn vulnerable, I feel that Dee Wallace’s performance is BRILLIANT in this film. :aww: In cooperation with the police, she takes part in a scheme to capture Eddie Quist, by agreeing to meet him in a sleazy porno theatre. :ohnoes: Well…. That’s an interesting start – a PORNO theatre…. Why do I get the feeling that three brides scene from Bram Stoker’s Dracula would often be shown there? :lol: Anyway, as the police follow her a while behind to keep an eye on the plan (yay, police in a horror film who AREN’T incompetent for once! :w00t: ) – by the way, I swear that the one policeman is played by a pre-pubescent Keanu Reeves. :lol: As her fellow news reporters are keeping in touch with Karen by radio – her friends Bill and Terri all come into the news booth to keep in touch with Karen, who comes across a phone booth with the serial killer’s signature symbol – a… smily face.. :lol: O…kay, another interesting start – a serial killer’s signature being a SMILY FACE. :XD: But to be fair, when she does get in touch with Eddie, the way Eddie asks what she’s wearing and… licks his lips, it does send a bit of a shiver down my spine. Deeeegh… looks like we have a pervert on our hands here. ^^; Heading down the eerily lit neon streets past the many raunchy shops (ugh, I’m getting unfortunate memories of when I walked past Soho in London when I was on holiday… ^^; ), until she gets to the one Eddie will meet up with her in. By the way, the way she looks at the one guy in a business suit looking at porn, and the guy clears his throat and runs off made me laugh. :XD: Heading into the corridor with the private booths, she comes across one with Eddie’s…. smily sticker on it, and goes in to meet up with the serial killer…. Well, no matter what stag film is being played in that booth, it will be NOWHERE NEAR as horrid as the Adult Party Cartoon episode Naked Beach Frenzy, I’ll tell you right now. :phew: By the way, the music here REALLY does well to heighten the tension, as well as the eerie lighting when she enters the booth and Eddie puts money into the booth to start the film.

The way that Karen is kept facing towards the screen, with Eddie directly behind her…. Damn, that’s quite unnerving… Eddie says that his victims never felt a thing, because he dubs them ‘not real’. He claims that he’s going to, er… light Karen’s whole body (I unfortunately know what he means by that ^^; ) and steps back… Making some rather uncomfortable grunting sounds, then saying she can turn around now, to which she screams in terror when she sees him. Luckily, before Eddie can have her way with her, the police arrive and shoot into the booth, supposedly killing Eddie. Once again, the police actually SHOOTING someone useful? I’m actually impressed. :D Left in shock by the incident, Karen suffers from a mixture between amnesia and post-traumatic stress disorder, forgetting all about the incident….. But suffering from harsh nightmares as a result, showing little bits and pieces of the incident… By the way, the music that plays when her husband Bill comforts her is a mixture between haunting and emotional…. It’s a pretty powerful piece of music… :o Karen gets some pretty harsh flashbacks of this incident throughout the film – not even being KISSED can go by without bringing forth horrid memories…. And when she tries to announce the news about Eddie Quist being brought to justice, seeing the stage lights and cameras sends her into a thousand yard stare. I have to give this film credit for how well they portray this fear – it’s very believable, in my opinion, that post traumatic stress disorder can brought out like this and have these kinds of effects. :o

Terri and her boyfriend Chris go to investigate Eddie’s lodgings, after walking past a…. rather unkempt version of a Dom DeLuise wannabe :XD: , and stumble into a…. rather icky house. Coming across newspaper clippings of murder stories that he most likely was the murderer in, and… some surprisingly impressive drawings of hairy people and Karen and… a rather ominous looking landscape of a seaside cliff. Also – that ORGAN MUSIC. :headbang: I’ve said in the past I’m a big fan of organ music, and this piece of music that plays when they look at that eerie looking landscape is no exception. And remember this landscape… it’s going to come back later. :)

Terri and Chris take the drawings to Dr George Waggner, who has been researching animal instincts in human beings – talking how everyone has a beast inside of them. He was talking about this earlier in the film, and Karen goes to Dr Waggner, trying to recall the incident of being inside the booth. By the way, I really like the scene with Karen talking to Dr Waggner. Remember what I said in my review of The Borderlands where there are some scenes of the characters talking to each other about everyday things, and it plays very natural? The same can be said here when Karen asks Dr Waggner what’s wrong her and she says ‘Okay, doc, how crazy am I?’ It’s a nice little touch, in my opinion. :aww: Dr Waggner suggests that Bill and Karen head up to the colony, a place where Dr Waggner’s patients go to recover from their conditions and, as he puts it, ‘Get in touch with what they once were’. Hmm, what could he mean by that? :hmm: After a nice scenic drive along a mountain road, Karen comments ‘Well I hope these people aren’t too weird….’

Next scene? An elderly man hollering madly….. ^^; Waa-waa-waaaah. :lol: At least the country rock music playing here is cool – yep, country rock is awesome. :headbang: It turns out that Bill is a vegetarian, as they interact with the colourful characters present at the colony. :) I also like the old man character, who listens to the music and it speaks to him – he says he can’t go on like this, and his ‘teeth are shot’. Perhaps you should try dentures, my friend? Or maybe you hollered so loud earlier it ruptured a denture? :lol: Meanwhile, Bill meets an…. Interesting character, Masha. Apparently Masha knows Bill, and when Bill says he’s looking for his wife, Masha asks ‘why’? ^^; Er….. yeah, I think I’ll let you guys know – Masha is a NYMPHOMANIAC. And her attempts of trying to hit on Bill are…. Less than subtle. :ohnoes:  Speaking of her, Dr Waggner describes her to be someone we can all learn from (er, what? :o ), as she is a very… ELEMENTAL person with a lot of natural energy.  The old man sees everyone around him, visibly younger than him, and as some rather solemn country rock music plays, he says that he can’t go on like this and tries to leap into a fire.

Also, the old man, named Erle, is ALSO voiced by an actor you may recognise…. Believe it or not, he’s played by the same man who voiced THE GREAT OWL in The Secret of NIMH – John Carradine. :wow: Wow, that’s a cool bit of trivia. :D Even though he plays an insecure old man in this film, his VOICE is such a powerful voice. And also, Karen worries that the colony may get to her too…. And she has a nightmare that night about Erle staring into the fire with a horrified expression, and his scream melds into a... wolf howl that Karen can hear outside her window…. :ohnoes: Needless to say, she’s scared by the incident and can’t get to sleep – and that’s just as well, or else she wouldn’t be able to scare away a creeper who starts stalking her outside her cabin. Wow, Karen sure gets stalked a lot, doesn’t she? What, is Slenderman out for revenge or something? :lol: No, it’s not Slenderman, but it’s rather a…. generally CREEPY character . In the morning, Karen and her new friend Donna play tennis, meeting up with a local sheriff Sam, who is actually played by the late Slim Pickens, whose voice you may recognise….. :evileye: That’s right, it’s B.O.B from The Black Hole. :D A little note here, this film was Slim Pickins’ last film role before he passed away in 1983, and he does a good job as a sheriff character who herds all of the cattle for the food in the colony, including this barbeque we saw earlier.

As he takes Karen and Donna to see his herd, Terri and Chris, the two reporters we saw earlier, are visiting the morgue that Eddie Quist was taken to after he was shot, to get some more information about Eddie Quist for their report….. to see that the corpse is GONE… and there are.. CLAW MARKS on the door… :fear: I don’t think he’s quite dead, somehow… Speaking of which, Karen and Donna head off to investigate the concerning cow noises that they hear in the woods. By the way, something about Donna reminds me of Grace from Home on the Range… :meow: The way she seems like a bubbly chatterbox, and how friendly she is reminds me a bit of Grace. :D Sadly, speaking of cows, it turns out the first bovine us rather… dead. ^^; Turns out that this quiet week in the country is becoming rather…. Unpleasant. ^^;

The next day, Bill and the boys in the colony go wolf hunting, with that creeper we saw earlier being like a pointer dog… And Erle thinks the cow killings were UFOs…. Er… Well, if they were XENOMORPHS, that would probably explain the mutilating… ^^; By the way, what’s with the music here, it sounds a bit more upbeat than usual. :lol: Almost sounds like the Safety Dance. :XD: Hopefully these guys will be hunting down the Alpha and Omega wolves, because the wolves in this film are REAL wolves – not those idiotic foam rubber creatures that moved around HORRIBLY. :hmm: Also, any wolfaboos who read this ‘hunting wolves’ thing and say ‘AGH, NO, HOW COULD THEY HUNT SEARCH BEAUTIFUL CREATURES?!’ :iconwthplz: Er… okay, wolves are cool and all – but in some places, they ARE known pests in some regions of the world, and killing off cattle is an example of what they do at times…. So, sorry, but if they’re a problem, they have to be hunted. :hmm:

By the way, one thing that seems a little bit odd in film is emotional juxtaposition – the moods go back and forth at times and, while it isn’t distracting TOO much, it does feel a bit strange how it goes from a light hearted comedic scene like the hunting scene to a session with Karen trying to recall her memories of the booth… She’s able to see a little bit of a vision… of a WOLF like creature… :ohnoes: GAAGH, wow, he’s turning into that Nazi from The Last Crusade who drank from the wrong chalice! :o Speaking of the wolf like creature, Terri and Chris go to a book store with those two nuns from earlier (who take a strange interest in hellish stuff – hopefully they’re not looking for a book on Cenobites :lol: ) and a bookstore owner played by Dick Miller, who you may remember as the immigrant hating neighbour from Gremlins. :D Terri and Chris start researching werewolves and it turns out that werewolves can transform WITHOUT the full moon present…. And if a limb is cut off, it can grow back without silver bullets or fire… :ohnoes: By the way, I like Dick Miller’s fast talking character roles – and there’s another funny bit here where they see an illustrated version of Little Red Riding Hood…. And speaking of Little Red Riding Hood… I’ll be getting back to a werewolf film based on that later…. :evillaugh:

Back at the colony, Bill has managed to shoot a rabbit (as the rabbits from Watership Down would say – ‘oh, Frith and Inle!!’ :XD: ) and asks that… creep from earlier if he’s seen any wolves around. He says his sister can cook his rabbit for him, and… okay, the next line here is a good response to those who are against FOOD-related hunting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m against hunting endangered animals like elephants, rhinos or basically ANY endangered animal, but for warmth, shelter and food – I’m all for, as long as it’s sustainable – like rabbits you breed or cattle ranches. :) Anyway, here’s the line from the creep I mentioned, who has a rather good line here – ‘You kill somethin’ you don’t eat? That’s a sin…’ Yes. That is right. :nod: Creep boy actually has some brains under that mullet top after all. :lol: Sorry, I know this may not be too related to the film as such, but I HAVE mentioned my views on hunting a few times in my previous reviews, so I thought I should give a little bit of thoughts on why I think some people who lash out at hunting in GENERAL seem to be a bit harsh, in my opinion. If you’re hunting for food, shelter, protection, or to euthanize dangerous animals who act like pests or dangerous killers, that I understand and am completely for. It’s when something is killed and the animal is an endangered species or nothing worthwhile comes from the hunting, in my opinion. *looks at Hidetoshi from Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and Big Boss from Rio 2 staring at me in disdain* …….Sorry guys, but that’s how I see it…. :hmm:

Anyway, it turns out the creepy guy’s sister is….. Masha. That’s right, CRAZY NYMPHOMANIAC LADY. ^^; Speaking of which, I will admit, her cabin is a… pretty cool setup – looks like she mixed interior decorating tips from the Sanderson Sisters and whoever built that cabin in the Evil Dead films… :lol: Masha passes Bill a rabbit’s foot, and Bill… places it gingerly on top of her fridge… I love the way he just places it there… before Masha approaches Bill in a… less than subtle manner… Sorry, ma’am, you’re not getting to second base. In fact, you’re not even at first base at the moment. :lol: After a bit of a.. tongue twisting moment (but in a limerick sense ^^; ), Bill starts walking back to his cabin…. At night. :iconatnightplz: …in the dark. ….with wolves howling around him. And needless to say, he gets bitten by a…. rather awesome looking werewolf. :wow: By the way, that eerie fog lighting effect when Bill looks down the forest clearing in the direction of what attacked him is REALLY awesome. Going to Dr Waggner for a shot, they’re told they shouldn’t head home, as the roads can be dangerous…. But something tells me he’s hiding something… :hmm:

Speaking of werewolves, Chris and Terri are watching werewolf movies – as the phone rings from Karen, saying that Bill has been bitten by a wolf. Terri heads up to the colony to pay Karen and Bill a visit – and they meet up by walking along a beautiful looking beach, with some rather beautiful music. Karen fears Masha is putting the moves on Bill and Bill could partake in marital infidelity behind her back, but… I personally think she should be questioning something else at the moment – BILL IS EATING MEAT. Okay, maybe not TOO much of a questionable thing at the moment, as he says ‘if I’m hungry, I’ll eat anything’, and that’s ONE possible explanation – but that’s only the appetisers. (No pun intended :lol: ). That night, as Karen starts suffering from more vivid nightmares, seeing Bill in the porno booth that Eddie Quist was in, and LAUGHING :o , Bill hears a… strange barking from outside… and when Karen awakes, it seems that Bill has been allured by the call of the wild… ^^;

Yep, it’s time for the werewolf version of that scene where slut-cat Nhzompekth from Felidae called out Francis… only SLIGHTLY more graphic – and I’ll explain why that is. Going to a… lit campfire, they start… getting it on. By the way, I have admitted in the past that in horror films, it’s oddly enough the RISQUE scenes that make me more uneasy than the actual HORROR itself, but something about the way the scene it’s in ADDS to the horror, rather than distract from it. So it’s less like those awkward scenes in Hellraiser and more like the Three Brides scene in Bram Stoker’s Dracula – where it works to the theme of the film’s advantage – Bill, becoming more like a wolf, has given into the beast within, being allured by wolf-like desires. I do like the nice touch that when they start making out, wolf howling is heard in the background. :wow: Everyone around the colony hears the endless howling, including Terri, who takes a recording of the sound, and…. Dr Waggner, who looks on in indifference. And…. erm, that one scene where Masha licks the bite wound that Bill has… Er…. HEY NOW. *pulls my collar, letting out some steam* Put a leash on her, she’s getting pretty wild. :blush: But wait, it gets MORE wild… as Bill and Masha begin turning into werewolves……. Even if the… drool puts me off, at least I can give it credit that it’s MEANT to be horrific, not like those times I’ve seen constant drool scenes in CHILDREN’S CARTOONS. ^^; And speaking of which… the organ music here is GREAT, and those visual effects are cool – not to mention the way their voices become more beastlike and Masha…erm…. Makes hyena noises that, to be honest, just sound the MOST unnatural and make me tremble the most ^^; – and… when Masha puts claw marks on Bill’s back… I’m, getting memories of my reaction to the scene in Bram Stoker’s Dracula where the one bride bit Keanu Reeves in his…. Erm, how do I put this… his privates.. :faint: But all jokes aside, the NEXT shot is great – silhouetted, Bill and Masha turn completely into werewolves, and the camera pans upwards into the full moon. Wow.... that was… something. :wow: Something tells me that some people who watch this film have probably made some… yiff fanart of that. Don’t know what yiff is? …..Er, don’t look it up. ^^; *sees people beginning to check anyway* STOP GOING TO THE GOOGLE BAR! :icon wthplz: At least it’s not as… odd as Turkie’s ‘you just got stuffed’ moment in Thankskilling. :lol:

The next morning, Bill, no doubt having come back from one of the… strangest ‘good times’ he’s ever had, goes back to the cabin to check on Karen. Terri plays back the recording of the wolves while she writes some findings…. Hopefully, she isn’t going to sell voice recordings of werewolves doing it as some kind of odd sex tape audiobook to those porno theatres from the start of the film. I can just imagine it now….. ‘Full Moons – And Not the Kind in the Sky’. ^^; And then… something clicks in her mind – looking at the beach from atop a cliff… OH MY GOD!! It’s the same one that Eddie Quist drew! :jawdrop: So, he’s been at The Colony… :evileye: And as Terri walks through the forest….. alone….. with organ music playing….. yeah, kind of a bad sign, isn’t it? Never trust forests with eerie looking fog in them – or with ghostly voices calling your name. :o Terri goes up to investigate Masha’s cabin in the woods, while a furred figure starts following her. Well…. Things aren’t going to turn out too well for Terri…. I can tell you that for free. ^^; Yeah, okay – I know that in films like this, a common complaint people give is ‘why would they delve deeper into the danger zone?’ like The Borderlands with the characters delving deeper into the hellish caves… What, you can’t fault someone for being curious… curiosity killed the cat, true, but still, if you’re interested in something, you’d probably investigate if you were brave enough.

There is quite a bit of good ambience as Terri looks around the cabin – it’s quiet… TOO quiet…….And it turns out that in the shack is…. EDDIE QUIST’S SMILY STICKER. :jawdrop: So… THIS is a home of his, is it? :o Something starts rattling in the cupboard in his room, prompting Terri to escape from the window. Okay, now these following scenes here where Terri is chased by the werewolf are some other instances where I can imagine some people nitpicking – but I will be willing to give Terri credit here. At least she headed straight for the window relatively quickly AND instead of just running off, she grabbed herself a weapon – a hand-axe outside. And some people may think it a bit of stupid move that she just barricades herself under the cabin’s stairs, but it is a place the werewolf can’t get to at first, and when the werewolf breaks through and tries to grab her, she does a good job cutting the werewolf’s arm off. Also, I remember my dad watching this scene and saying ‘wait a minute, an axe couldn’t cut through bone like that. :lol: I’m sure an axe CAN, if it’s sharp enough. :shrug: Oh, and here’s ANOTHER awesome effect here – the cut off arm turns back into a human arm with some rather creepy wriggling and cracking. :fear: But here’s a bit of a silly move here – why didn’t Terri take the axe with her as she runs to the doctor’s office? ^^;

Back with Karen and Bill – as Karen wakes up from another nightmare, as Bill is reapplying a bandage to his arm wound. Karen notices the scratches on his back, noticing they weren’t there the other night. Dooogh, Bill, you’re in trouble now… :ohnoes: And then I start getting some Belle’s Magical World flashbacks as Bill and Karen start arguing and then Bill SLAPS Karen. Needless to say, Karen doesn’t take Bill’s debauchery lightly and heads off. Looks like the call of the wild really bit you in the butt in more ways than one, Bill…. :no: Meanwhile, Terri gets to a telephone and tries to call Chris for help, telling him the landscape they found is a real place, in the colony – as a werewolf finger touches a tape recorder playback button….. Terri heads into the files in the cabinet in the doctor’s office, as Chris is oddly enough watching Disney shorts of the Big Bad Wolf… :XD: It turns out that Masha and T.C. (that creepy guy from earlier) have the last name QUIST. :wow: So they’re RELATED? That explains a lot. And just as Terri takes out Eddie Quist’s file from the cabinet…. Eddie himself is there, as his werewolf paw takes the file away. Haha, I love how GENTLY he just takes away the file on him from Terri. Werewolves don’t ALWAYS have to be brutal in what they do, you know. :lol: And now the full design of the werewolves in this film are revealed – and let me say right now, it’s AWESOME. It seems to have fixed the problems I had with the werewolf designs in Dog Soldiers – the legs aren’t as disproportionate as the werewolves in Dog Soldiers. Sadly, Eddie then lashes out at Terri, trapping her in the doctor’s office. Terri tries to shine a bright doctor’s light at him, but Eddie then proceeds to bite Terri in the neck, killing her…. :ohnoes: By the way, another problem some people raise is – if bright lights stun him, why couldn’t Terri just open the blinds to let in the sunlight? I think Eddie Quist would probably be too smart to let her do that – even if she COULD reach the blinds to open them, Eddie would notice and probably kill her quicker. Speaking of Eddie Quist, the contents of his case file are strewn on the floor…. With all sorts of diagrams and drawings of him as a human AND a werewolf…. So the doctor KNEW he was a werewolf? I don’t think the GOOD doctor is quite as good as we’ve been led to believe. :evileye:

Chris calls the sheriff, who is eating…. WOLF chilli. :XD: He then proceeds to buy silver bullets from the bookshop, as Karen is leaving from abusive Bill – heading to the same doctor’s office Terri was in…. and she comes across Terri’s corpse. Poor Karen – she’s been molested by a werewolf, slapped, is currently suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, and now has had her best friend be murdered by a werewolf serial killer… Imagine what SHE’S going through. :( She covers the face of Terri’s corpse with a blanket, while some rather beautifully sad music plays out, and she tries to use the phone – to find that the phone line has been cut. Hearing horrid laughter in her head, she backs slowly into where Terri’s corpse was… only to stumble into – EDDIE, with a bullet still in his head. :ohnoes: He says he wants to give Karen a piece of his mind – and literally does just that, as he TAKES THE BULLET OUT OF HIS HEAD. :x Okay, that effect was rather awesome. :clap:

Speaking of awesome effects, remember what I said about a scene from this film that scared me to no end at the beginning of the film? Well…. Here it is – as Eddie turns into a werewolf. This scene is just… a mixture of INTENSELY scary moments and awesome effects, music and sounds… Some scary scenes are best in short bursts, but this is an example of a scene that’s great because it’s drawn out…. It’s REALLY drawn out. And it has a ton of eerie moments, like Eddie’s maw growing, claws coming out his fingers, and… perhaps the one that freaks me out the most, the part when he’s twitching his monstrous FINGERS. Just... something about the way the FINGERS move freak me out in particular – it’s like the way THE THING moves.. :fear: And it keeps going on, and on…. You know, considering the fact this film only had a $1 million budget or so, this sequence has DEFINITELY fooled me… :clap: And best of all, this is before directors started shoving CGI forcefully into everything, so it’s great to see animatronics of THIS high quality. :D Karen, snapping out of her fearful gaze, reaches for a vat of acid behind her, and there’s ANOTHER wolf gag – Wolfe’s Ulcer and Acidosis Treatment. :lol: As more and MORE painful sounding cracking sounds occur, something finally clicks in Karen’s head about what she saw in the porno booth at the start of the film. She throws the acid into Eddie’s face, and runs off. Okay, that scene there is probably my FAVOURITE scene in the whole film – that was just AMAZINGLY creepy. It’s probably my second favourite werewolf transformation scene next to the gradual transformation of Ginger Fitzgerald into a werewolf. :)

Karen runs to the car, but not before two of the people from the colony get to her first – holding her at GUNPOINT. Oh my, this doesn’t look good…. Something tells me the masks have fallen away from the members of the colony... as all of them have gathered in a shed in front of Terri’s corpse on a table. And wouldn’t you know it, the doctor is there as well… And as Karen rushes to hug her… He pulls her away… :o And now the true secret of the colony is revealed – everyone in the colony is actually a werewolf, and Doctor Waggner has helped them to adjust to their ‘gift’, and how to use and control it. I like here how Erle says that the old ways have been lost, and there’s no life in raising cows for cattle. Oh, so that may have been why he wanted to end it – he hated the fact that the old ways of the werewolf hunt have been lost, and the act of ‘channelling your energy’ is a load of bull dust. Dr Waggner has been trying to help these werewolves get in touch with society and fit in with today’s world – but of course, some of the werewolves want nothing to do with it. Hmm, werewolves could be living among us in society? :fear: I’ll have to be careful whenever I head to university – anyone with dangerously high amounts of anger and strength could be ones to look out for…. :fear: And it turns out that T.C. was the one Terri chopped the arm off earlier, and that they can’t just kill Karen, as she’s well known…. But Masha wants nothing to do with Waggner and SCRATCHES him in the cheek, as another one hits him with his gun. Erle then says ‘you can’t tame what’s meant to be wild, doc… it ain’t natural’. Hmm, that line could actually be something I should say to the makers of Alpha and Omega – yeah, they tried to turn wild wolves into puny domesticated mutts – they should see the wolves from The Howling – now THESE are wolves. :w00t:

Luckily, Chris does a move similar to the police chief in Killer Klowns from Outer Space – he starts off being indifferent to what’s going on, but he begins to kick butt in the third act, as he brings a shotgun with him to the colony. He heads to the doctor’s office, where the tape recorder is playing Dr Waggner’s voice – talking about lycanthropy. Chris then hears the tape recorder playing what it was RECORDING EARLIER – the sounds of Terri’s murder. Oh wow, Eddie’s quite the SADIST, isn’t he…. :ohnoes: Speaking of which, he’s gone all Phantom of the Opera as part of his face is badly burned by the acid… Luckily, he doesn’t anticipate that Chris has got silver bullets in his rifle, and gives Chris back his gun as he begins changing back into a werewolf – luckily, Chris shoots him the neck with silver bullets, and heads to the shed where the colony members have met up, who are about to take Karen to the car, set it on fire and push it off a cliff to make it look like an accident. Luckily, Chris shoots T.C before he can transform, and then another before he can shoot Chris. However, the doctor comes towards Chris, but before he can get closer, Chris shoots the doctor, who mutters ‘thank god’, before he drops down dead. And now…. The rest of the colony starts turning into werewolves – but Chris pushes them back with his gun, and then sets the whole barn on fire with the gasoline. Wow… it’s like the House of Usher all over again… :XD: By the way, am I the only one who thinks the close ups of Masha turning into a werewolf inside the barn makes her look a bit like a mixture between a Gremlin and an Ewok? :XD:

Chris and Karen rush to Chris’ car, but not before another werewolf tries to attack them. They come across the sheriff, who is ALSO a werewolf… :o Another werewolf with a gun, who shoots up Chris and Karen’s car. :wow: But Chris manages to kill him before they escape from the car… which explodes. You know, how come with exploding cars in films, the cars are always compassionate enough to wait until JUST AFTER everyone has got out of the burning vehicle to explode sky high? :lol: Heading into the sheriff’s police car, they try to start it up, but are attacked by more werewolves…… it eventually starts up, but them Karen is bitten in the shoulder by a werewolf… who turns out to be Bill. :ohnoes: Wow…. Karen HAS been through a LOT in this film, hasn’t she?! :o Seriously, I’m not sure if even BLACKAVAR from Watership Down went through as much as Karen has…

As they drive away, Karen vows to Chris that they have to make people believe in the dangers of werewolves in the world…. And the way she DOES this is… rather sad… :( Heading back to the news TV station, Karen has a… rather special way of telling everyone about the dangers. Bear in mind that she’s on live TV. She reads out a special report that she and Chris have made – talking about how most people have a choice between kind and cruel, a differentiation between human and animal nature, but some have had that choice taken away from them. A society of people who are neither human or animal – but something inbetween. And to show this…. She begins turning into a werewolf… on LIVE TV. I wish I saw THAT report on TV every morning, rather than endless news about members of British royalty constantly having morning sickness… That would be MUCH more interesting. :lol: But seriously, when that tear fell down Karen’s cheek, I actually did feel myself well up a little… :cries: But now the problems I mentioned earlier with ‘emotional juxtaposition’ come in – it cuts RIGHT FROM Karen crying to people watching the news report and reacting to it differently. Some people say ‘what IS this?’, two children watch it and say ‘the news lady’s turning into a werewolf!’, and the bookstore owner mutters ‘Oooh, boy’. And as they agreed, to put Karen out of her misery, Chris SHOOTS her with a silver bullet…. Also, a few comments on the fact that Karen as a werewolf looks nowhere NEAR as monstrous as those we saw earlier - to be honest, I personally think it makes sense – she was nowhere near as vicious as those other people who had been turned, so I personally think it fits she was less monstrous.

Wow…. If THAT was on the news in the morning, I personally think I would try and spend more time watching the news. I want to see news reports like that one in Gremlins 2 where they took over that TV station. :D But now, the scene cuts to a bar, where some people comment on the scene, and one man asks for a ‘hamburger for the lady’, and asks her, how does she want it…. MASHA, who is still alive, replies ‘Rare’. Hmm, now if she’s not going to go around ripping apart people like her two brothers did (seriously, Eddie Quist and T.C are her BROTHERS?! Wow… I can only imagine what their PARENTS were like – seriously, if you don’t treat your children that well, don’t you almost EXPECT them to turn out like this?! :lol: ), I can only imagine what she’d do if she tried to fit in with society – I can almost imagine ‘Full Moons – And Not the Kind in the Sky’ to become a popular porno in the near future… ^^; But on a side note – that hamburger cooking at the end credits does make me rather hungry. :lol: And with that, a clip from an old fashioned werewolf horror film gives us a warning – ‘Go now, and heaven help you’…. So look out folks, for anyone who you come across tomorrow could VERY WELL be a werewolf in disguise. :o For some reason, the behaviour of Tommy Wiseau in The Room – as if he was a recluse from society, suddenly makes quite a bit more sense now…. Seriously, look at THIS face -> :icontommywiseauplz: That almost LOOKS like a werewolf face to me… ^^;

:iconhoneybeegirl94::iconsaysplz: I remember watching this movie! I felt slightly guilty on laughing slightly at the ending (which was the only thing that I remember about it).

:iconvindurza::iconsaysplz: love the werewolf moving genre

 

I think I’ve realised something about my reviews when I was in the middle of writing this one. I had been worrying a bit about running low on steam recently in my reviews, but to be honest – I think it depends on the film – as I said before, there are some films where I can say a lot about it, and some where I don’t need as many words to review them. I was worrying a bit about my reviews, but I was judging the reviews by the LENGTH alone, and not by what I was actually writing. So hopefully, even though this review is shorter than usual, the review is still okay. :aww: But enough of this, and onto the final thoughts for this film.

This film may not be AS good as the Gremlins films, in my opinion, but it is still very good. :) My main problem with the film seems to be relating to emotional juxtaposition – the scenes that are comedic come straight after some very heavy horror stuff, and instead of working in favour of the film, like the Gremlins films, it kind of works against the film. It feels pretty strange having all of those things come one after the other… :hmm: I don’t mind funny moments in horror films, in fact it lightens the tension at times and helps out with the more scary moments, but it does feel a bit odd seeing them come straight AFTER THE scariest and darker moments in the film. ^^; Also, after watching the deleted scenes, it feels a little bit like one or two scenes were missing from the film – there were some members of the colony who I would have liked to have known a little bit better, and with some of them…. I don’t even remember their NAMES that well. The only reason I remember Donna’s is because I looked at the IMDb page for the film. ^^;

But at the end of the day, the scary moments in the film are GREAT. :evillaugh: The transformation scenes in this film are perhaps some of the BEST werewolf transformations that I’ve seen in ANY horror film… and I mean it when I say that it is one of the few horror scenes that CONTINUE to scare me no matter how many times I see it. Also, the acting in this film is pretty good as well – especially for Dee Wallace, who is just one of those actresses who has such a kind air to her as an actress. :aww: And I also have to give the special effects as a whole a lot of credit – they are GREAT special effects. :clap: It is a welcome break, in today’s world where horror films substitute CGI in place of actual substance, that put some good effort into the visual animatronics – given the film’s relatively slim budget, I’m VERY impressed with what they pulled off. But it’s not just visuals that I love about it, the horror scenes, the ideas of werewolves integrating themselves into society and the conflict of the main character are great. :D Also, Eddie Quist, now that I think about it, may be some kind of SOCIOPATH villain done WELL. Think about it - He's a serial killer mixed with a werewolf who thinks that normal people are just nothing. :o And yet he’s SOMEHOW less unpleasant than the sociopaths I’ve come across in OTHER works I’ve reviewed – Modern Patrick Star, the Adult Party Cartoon version of Ren, and… Davey Stone from Eight Crazy Nights…. :fear: Wow, so a serial killer is LESS unpleasant than three characters who are meant to be PROTAGONISTS. That’s…. interesting.

Speaking of visual effects, the actual effects were done by the same person who did the visual effects in The Thing…. Wow, so my comparisons to the finger movements from Eddie Quist to The Thing earlier were RIGHT. :D So, if you want a good, more serious horror film from Joe Dante (not QUITE as light hearted as Gremlins), check this out. :D But I still think that I’m going to be a little bit more careful about walking past people in the street – who knows, if werewolves CAN integrate themselves into society…. Looks like more people will be walking into the dog salons… :lol:

 

I’ve been thinking about which film to review next, but after buying Monster House on DVD recently, I’ve decided to take a little bit of a break from werewolves for now (don’t worry, I’ll be returning to them soon :D ), and review a less horrific horror film, but still a bit eerie…

MONSTER HOUSE. :iconwoooplz:

Wow, Duckyworth, I mean it. I know you've probably been informed of this before, but they totally fixed Sunset Shimmer's character in Rainbow Rocks. Heck, it's this movie that almost made her one of my favorite characters.

Even Flash Sentry says "That's the bad girl we love to hate!" about her past self. :evillaugh:

Wow, really? :wow:
I'm VERY intrigued by this film now - if they can turn one of the WORST examples of the Alpha Bitch trope into an actual CHARACTER, then I have a good feeling about the film. :aww:
After my Hallowe'en and Christmas reviews, I may just have to do a Duckyworth's Thoughts on it, like I did with the first Equestria Girls. :evileye:

Yup. And the new villains are far more interesting than Sunset in the first film, IMO. Their goals expand more on the magical elements that MLP: FIM has, something the first movie kinda lacked. It's one of the main reason why I think this sequel actually TOPPED the first film.

You know why the angels of Bayoneta look so scary and act scary, right? It's because that angels of Christianity were depicted like that in the past.
