IT'S NOT OVER YET.

How do you follow up a film as iconic as Joe Dante's seminal werewolf epic The Howling? With a star turn from horror legend Christopher Lee and a leather-clad Sybil Danning (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times), Howling II is more than up to the challenge!

After a young woman dies in violent circumstances, her brother is approached by a stranger (Lee) who reveals that she was in fact a werewolf. The brother's initial skepticism is quickly diffused when he encounters the fanged beasts first-hand. Now the pair, joined by a plucky journalist, must travel to Transylvania to destroy werewolf queen Stirba (Danning), and rid the world of lycanthropes once and for all.

Helmed by director Philippe Mora (Mad Dog Morgan, The Beast Within), who would go on to direct the equally barmy follow-up Howling III: The Marsupials, Howling II is a campy horror extravaganza featuring killer dwarves, werewolf orgies and '80s punk rock galore!

Mediocre Yet Fun

The Howling was such a seminal werewolf film that it deserved a decent sequel. Alas, this was not it. The storyline had potential but was so badly handled that it eventually disappeared into a miasma of its own making. The author of the original book, Gary Brandner, was part of the team that brought this to the screen and, as such, it seems remarkable that he would let the film be made in this tawdry almost comedic manner. On the plus side, the film has Christopher Lee which always adds gravitas to any film but how he got mixed up in this is perplexing - I hope he got plenty of money for it. There is also Sybil Danning as werewolf queen Stirba which is certainly worth your viewing time although the treatment she gets at the end of the film is exploitation at its most extreme - and she alludes to this in an interview during one of the extras. In conclusion then, this film is just about worth your time once but I suspect most people won't watch it again although if you are a Sybil Danning fan then you will probably watch it again and again! Five out of ten.
