I am very appreciative of this lil' gem. This is the movie that got me interested in werewolves in the first place. It was late on a sunday night (I was still in school) when I was flipping through the channels and caught this one on. Right away, I got pulled into this genre.

As you're aware, it's set in Australia and deals with Marsupial were-kangaroos trying to survive and stay out of man's territory. The secret is spilled out into the open as werewolf Jerboa Jerboa (Two First Names) runs away from the colony she's part of in the Australian bush. Once she makes her way to Sydney, she meets Donnie, a young Assistant Director for Shape Shifters Part 8. After offering her a job on the movie, he begins to realize that she'd not normal. Trouble ensues on a large scale when not only does Jerboa's new boyfriend find out she's a werewolf, but after an accident, the hospital and government too learn about her. It's up to her and her boyfriend to survive as they go on the run together.

The special effects aren't too shabby and the 80's music is great.There are also
excellent performances by Barry Otto, Imogen Annlsey, Ralph Cotterill and
Michael Pate. It's rare to find that quality in cheesy 80's movies.

The treatment for the DVD is a great bargain. We've got 2 trailers, 1 photo gallery, director's commentary (Highly Recommended!), 5.0 surround sound and of course the feature film, brilliantly restored from 1987.

For $5.00 and under, that's a heck of a deal! Searching everywhere as I did in the city, I could only find this online, so I went on and reunited with it.

So if you're sure to stumble upon this title anywhere, be sure not to pass up the oppourtunity!

My ratings:

The Howling: 10/10
Howling II: 5/10
Howling III: 10/10
Howling IV: 3/10
Howling V: 9/10
Howling VI: 9/10

Pick this one up, Play it, and enjoy it!

The Howling III is so bad it's good; not extremely good though.The dialogue is terrible, but what do you expect from a horror movie.The characters however are funny and memorable.The plot is really ridiculous but it ends up telling a fairly good story.The werewolfs look so fake and stupid it's funny.I only liked the story and characters basically.(SPOILERS)The scene where the woman werewolf gives birth to the baby wolf was so sick; it crawled up her body in a little pouch.I do enjoy the ending to these Howling movies though;this one was really good.The race is on as a colony of marsupial werewolfs attempts to outwit and outlast their human counterparts in the offbeat horror film "Holling III : The Marsupials."Long ago, the now-extinct marsupial wolf (a.k.a. Tasmanian Tiger) roamed the Australian Outback. Today, a werewolf colony that has descended from these marsupials has taken over the land.This race for survival is on as the humans struggle to contain these out of control creatures.(5/10)
"a silly, semi-spoof of werewolf movies"

In a moment of Christmas spirit overload I pick up two copies of this movie. One for the office party and one for myself.
I get home and see it's PG-13 and figure I'll watch it with my daughter after the spousal unit falls asleep. What momma doesn't know can't hurt her.
The Howling III starts off pretty good. Cheesey special effects (none of that CG crud) , quirky characters, and good looking women. Typical 80's horror with the exception of it being filmed in Australia.
Basically a band of marsupial werewolves live in the outback to avoid man's encroachment and scientists that may want to do experiments on them. After all, they are werewolves with pouches, that's fairly rare these days.
The first half of the movie had plenty of good old fashioned special effects and entertaining sequences that kept both my daughter and I interested. Of course it was a bit uncomfortable when the lead female (Kanga-lycanthrope) gives birth to a little marsupial werewolf baby. Ugly little bugger at that!
The second half of the flick just doesn't have enough special effect type sequences to keep it interesting.
You may think the storyline has enough clout to stand on it's own but it doesn't.
Still I'm happy to add it to my collection of 80's horror films.
The DVD is of good quality.(widescreen) and it does contain several extras which is rare for a film of this type and price.
Good day mate!!

Howling III is one wacked out movie. Director Philip Mora must have had his tongue firmly stuck in his cheek when he wrote and directed this film. It's about Marsupial werewolfs for goodness sake! It you take it for what it is, Howling III is entertaining for the first half. It's so odd that it keeps you interested. The last half tends to drag, and seems to overstay its welcome. This DVD is beautifully remastered, in widescreen, and comes with plenty of extras. I can't believe this movie was treated so well on its DVD release when it's not even liked that well by horror movie fans? It just strikes me as strange. Anyway, I have to say I liked the Director's communtary by Philip Mora. He seems to take this movie so seriously, saying that he "wanted to make a Howling movie he could call his own since Howling II (which he also directed) was the product of the editors and producers". I can't say that Howling III is much better than Howling II. Both are pretty lame in my book. Anyway, I like these wacked out horror movies every once-in-awhile. Make sure to also pick up the MGM's new special edition of The Howling and the Artisan double feature Howling V/Howling VI DVD to help complete your oddball werewolf collection. I wonder if Howling II and Howling IV will be released on DVD soon. I'd like to complete my collection, and lets pray that Howling (7): New Moon Rising never gets released.
