I have watched “The Howling” several times over the years. The visual effects always impress me and I get the sense that this film was ahead of its time when released. Without any hesitation, I can say that this is truly one of the best werewolf movies ever made.

Many,many years ago i was watching previews on 42nd street before the main movie started. One of the previews was for this movie. I stayed and waited for the previews again because i was soooo impressed by the special effects of the werewolf. To this day, i still love the way this werewolf looks. Not much for sound freaks to enjoy but still watch it on your HOMETHEATER.My favorite scene is when one of the characters is looking for information in a file cabinet and a very large, hairy hand reaches over and takes it! Extremely cool!!! I really enjoyed the special effects of a tall, large teeth, hairy looking werewolf. The story is not bad, but the visual effects is the star of this movie. I give this movie 4 stars. Great visual effects, good characters (female werewolf,yummy) and a decent story. Fried chicken wings, french fries,coke.

After a traumatic experience at work, TV reporter Karen White (Dee Wallace) checks into a plush California resort called The Colony to rest. Yet, on her first night there, the howling outside her window leads her to discover that she's in a colony of werewolves. Now she must expose the secret -- if she can survive! Rife with in-jokes, horror film references and genuine scares, this John Sayles-penned howl fest is a werewolf classic.
