Synopsis

"A hip, well-made horror film brimming with film-buff jokes and amazing wolf transformations!" – Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide

From the director of Gremlins and Piranha comes the ultimate masterpiece of primal terror. Filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense, "genuine thrills [and] amazing special effects" (Us), this riveting werewolf tale sinks its teeth into your deepest fears and never lets go.

Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace, E.T.) takes some much-needed time off. Hoping to conquer her inner demons, she heads for "the Colony," a secluded retreat where her new neighbors are just a tad too eager to make her feel at home. Also, there seems to be a bizarre link between her would-be attacker and this supposedly safe haven. And when, after nights of being tormented by savage shrieks and unearthly cries, Karen ventures into the forest to find answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life...but for her very soul!

Why We Love It

"The Howling's werewolves (not to mention Dee Wallace and Elisabeth Brooks) look incredible with Scream Factory’s immaculate Blu-ray restoration, which comes with hours of bonus materials detailing the making of the film and Bottin’s effects." – Adam Frazier, Geeks of Doom

"Joe Dante's film, from a John Sayles script, is a memorable and highly amusing cult horror classic. The Blu-ray arrives with a great picture quality, an excellent audio presentation, and a healthy collection of supplements, some of which are new to this collector's edition, making the overall package a recommended purchase for fans." – M. Enois Duarte, High-Def Digest

"Scream Factory has gone ahead and doused this seminal werewolf classic in royal flames. I’ve seen this one countless times, and their transfer is absolutely wonderful…Simply put, it’s highly recommended." – Matt Serafini, Dread Central

"The Howling is one of the rare horror movies that has only gotten better with age.  It’s incredibly smart, witty, scary and full of memorable moments and unforgettable creature effects.  The Scream Factory team has done a fantastic job assembling this disc." - Dr. Adam Jahnke, The Digital Bits
