You would think that with today's special effects that a movie of this caliber would be awesome........45 minutes into the movie before you see the werewolf. The story was week and VERY predictable. Perfect example of sequels (or remakes) not worth watching. The first Howling was the best. Don't waste your money.

This version of the Howling is enjoyable. The acting is believable unlike the last two.

I was more than excited to find out a new Howling sequel was in the works. The series, with the except of the first, has been a long train wreck of entries... Trashy, low-budget werewolf movies that I have a soft spot for, despite their short comings. This is the 8th entry in the series. Rather than draw from the awesomeness of the original 1981 film, this one decides to ride Twilight's coattails. It's unfortunate because The Howling should not need to use another brand to be worthwhile. That said, it is what it is and if you're a fan like I am, it's a wonder an 8th movie was made at all! I prefer Blu-ray purchases of course, however the DVD has a cool slipcase with a matte/embossed/foil combo finish. The Blu-ray did not have any special packaging so I left it on the shelf. If you're a Howling fan for the sake of it or if you liked Twilight and you're open to a grittier knock-off, you may like this.

Reborn? More Like Stillborn. An Empty-Headed Reboot That Fails To Reignite A Horror Franchise Oct. 19 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
When the original "The Howling" debuted in 1981, while successful enough, it certainly wasn't a huge commercial or critical smash on arrival. But through time and the video market, Joe Dante's werewolf conception started to gain traction and fit into a monster movie niche that few other pictures at the time were filling. An apt genre comparison of the same era would be the stellar (and much better) "An American Werewolf in London." Neither film reinvented horror conventions, but both employed state-of-the art effects and make-up to modernize the tales for a new audience (American Werewolf won a 1981 Make-up Oscar). As "The Howling" eventually came to be embraced as a minor classic of werewolf lore, it spawned a series of direct-to-DVD sequels (most in name only). Really, if you have seen ANY of them--they leave a lot to be desired! I say all this to preface my comments about "The Howling Reborn" (a title eerily reminiscent of 1991's "Howling V: The Rebirth"). There's nothing wrong in referencing a classic, but the movie landscape has changed considerably since the original film. Now werewolves are all over television, books, and movies and it's much harder to bring something new to the party.

Unfortunately, this is a real case of "I've seen it all before, and much much better!" The movie kicks right off with a werewolf attack (although the culprit is unseen) as a pregnant woman in what looks like a bad disguise is mauled. The film advances through time, and now the unborn fetus is about to graduate from high school. This isn't any ordinary high school, though. It seems to be a private facility with a fortress like security system--seriously, it's pretty spectacular to see this ancient building with stained glass windows go into a modern lockdown mode any prison would envy. Several things must be accepted to move the plot along. Despite having attended the same classes for years, the plot requires various characters to be complete strangers (even the principle is clueless about his class of seniors). Although the school is bustling with activity, it can also be completely deserted when necessary. Even gunshots, blood stains, bodies, or missing students don't arouse investigation during the school day! So much for advanced security.

Our hero (Landon Liboiron of the new show Terra Nova) is one of those movie geeks who seems to be a misfit because he wears glasses (very Harry Potter, in fact). His love for an enigmatic tough girl reaches fruition as she invites him to an after hours party where he is almost attacked. But things start to get even more suspicious. Is there a werewolf clan? What are their designs on our young hero? And is there any escape? And if about 100 people went missing, would anyone notice? On the last day of school, the building goes into full lockdown (despite the fact that graduation is being held--without parents--right outside) trapping all the principle players in for a series of showdowns. The werewolf effects aren't especially notable and are used very sparsely to boot. It's all incredibly silly and underwhelming. There are just too many werewolf choices available to make this rather inept attempt of any interest. Even suspending all logic (which you have to do throughout) , this simply doesn't offer any originality or any genuine thrills. KGHarris, 10/11.

Poor entry into the werewolf category Nov. 5 2011
By Kevin Stanton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was very very disappointed by this installment for many reasons. The special effects were good, not overdone. However.... the plot was actually a good one, they just lost it somehow.
The actual connection to the original howling I cannot see, except that it was based on the second book in the series and they didn't really explain in the movie how they were connected. Maybe just the title?
The original Howling had the tension, acting, scant but effective special effects, great plot, a sense of paranoia and a sense of a horrible discovery along with some really good acting. The only good acting in this one is the mother. Part played well.
There wasn't the sense of tension here, just a rolling ball of a plot. They could have easily played on the fact that 'they are all around us', but they didn't.
Not recommended at all. The original is still the best, skip all the other howling movies.

In comparison to other werewolf movies, it's actually good quality. Oct. 10 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I appreciate a good werewolf movie. In the past decade there has been none. I'd like to make my review based on other reviews I've seen here.

1) The werewolf look was aesthetically acceptable.
Compare it to the last dumb Hollywood werewolf movies
-The CG on some werewolf movies looked like a cartoon,
--Like in the movie "Cursed", that was a stupid movie.
--I hate CG, and was glad to see it not used so much
-Some movies cut out the werewolf from being seen at all for suspense
--but it's just lack of courage or creativity to portray the- - werewolf
-some show normal animal wolves, some prefer this I prefer the
---horror sci version of it.
---I don't watch movies to be realistic.
The werewolf was like the ones in the other Howlings mostly and not unlike
-werewolf in the TV show Werewolf
2) The story is different from the older original versions
Though it isn't an original take in horror it isn't a rip off the first
3) The werewolf's don't sparkle.

I will add I don't like the teeny aspect to it, and the tired old coming of age crap I don't watch a horror movie for.
If you've seen the last sequel in the Howling series "New Moon Rising", this is a well produced film. I feel it deserves better credit than it has received here on Amazon.

It's not the greatest movie, but don't let a nerdy hatters review sway you from watching it.
As far as werewolf movies, I've seen much much worse.

SUCKS Nov. 25 2011
By Sebastien Forest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'll keep this short and sweet this movie is BAD. I'm horrified to find some reviewers giving this anymore then a two star rating and for those who gave it five stars well how many stars would you give an actual good movie? By given this five stars you are implying that this movie is as good as it gets and it ain't.
Cursed by Wes Craven was a better werewolf movie then this hands down and I didn't even really think that it was all that special. So there five star lunatics take that!
