A very fair review! Few films scared me as a kid as well as the opening set piece in The Howling. It's like Cruising distilled into a ten minute scene of seediness and the threat of sexual violence. Looking forward to picking this up in time for Halloween.
Thanks for review Simon. One of my fav films from early eighties and includes a young crush of mine dee Wallace stone of ET fame ( what happened to her ) ..I cant help but think that it now looks cheesy as hell. I hope it's on streaming platforms would like to revisit but now but
not 10 minutes ago before reading your post I was thinking it was not that bad and picked the steelbook of it but still in wraps and was thinking of cracking it open for Halloween.
Just been reading the Director Cuts better and looked on the steel and it has both versions.
