Description: The Cinefamily presents a late-night screening of the second sequel to THE HOWLING - which like all the sequels, went direct-to-video. From the website:

Philippe Mora's gonzo entry in the Howling franchise is easily the most wild of the bunch, even topping his own Howling II (aka Stirba: Werewolf Bitch)! Relocating the lycanthrope action to his native Australia, Mora (who also directed ‘80s faves The Beast Within and Communion) concocts the meta-textual story of a runaway werewolf girl who becomes romantically involved with a young man who’s working on a movie about -- you guessed it -- werewolves. Besides nods to the original Howling’s blend of horror and post-modern parody, you’ve also got hilarious piles of pseudo-science, a corpulent Hitchcock-wannabe director of the film-within-the-film, gooey marsupial/werewolf hybrids (g’day!), and a ballet dancer transformation that rivals Black Swan for sheer overheated ridiculousness. Come howl at the moon with Phillipe Mora in person for a Q&A after the film! Dir. Phillipe Mora, 1987, 35mm, 94 min. (Archival 35mm print courtesy of National Film And Sound Archive Australia)
