The Howling

To me, "The Howling" beats the fur off "An American Werewolf in London."

 

I loved it in 1981, and I watched it about 2 years ago on VHS and it held up very well. What surprised me was how grim the movie was, given that Joe Dante has moved in the direction of comedy since then.

 

The opening scenes, in which the heroine is attacked in a porno shop, were very gritty and tense. The ending of the film strives for, and reaches, a tragic note, I think.

When I saw THE HOWLING in a big, cavernous theater on 42nd St. in NYC back in l981, I was scared out of my lace panties with that scene in the doctor's office and the girl is attacked by that horrifically transformed werewolf. And it got even scarier when Dee Wallace came in and and the monster returned. The brilliant transformation scenes were never surpassed, especially with al the CGI junk that litters today's horror flicks.
