Blu-ray Review: Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf

15 July 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As much as I hate to admit it now, I didn’t always love Howling II. But over the years, as I’ve revisited this cult classic time and time (and time) again, mostly due to Christopher Lee and his badass punk rock attitude in the film, I’ve grown to appreciate Phillippe Mora’s wonderfully surrealistic take on lycanthropes that feels like a modernized twist on the classic Hammer films I grew up loving. And while it may not be a flawless effort by any means, I can’t help but adore a film that gave us Sybil Danning as Queen of the Werewolves, put Lee in a New Wave night club (complete with zany sunglasses and leather jacket) and also gave the modern lycan mythology a bit of an unexpected twist.

Bluray Review: The Howling II

14 July 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Fans of Joe Dante’s 1981 werewolf classic, The Howling, might have been a little taken back with its 1985 sequel, The Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf, with its complete 180 in tone and outrageous mix of sexuality and humor, but the film has since become quite the cult favorite.  Driven by performances from Christopher Lee, Reb Brown, Annie McEnroe and the extremely sexy Sybil Danning, the film might be a little too out there for die hard lovers of the first film, but Scream Factory’s new Bluray release of Philipe Mora’s outrageous entry into the series might just be what’s needed to make them all converts.

Picking up where the first film left off, The Howling II finds Ben White (Reb Brown), the brother of Dee Wallace’s character from the original, attending her funeral and wanting answers about her death. Soon coming across not only Jenny »

July 14th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include It Follows, Ex MacHina, Howling II

13 July 2015 9:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

July 14th may not have a lot of genre-related titles arriving on DVD and Blu-ray, but the films making their home entertainment debuts this week are a rather stellar bunch nonetheless. For anyone who may have missed two of the best indie films this year in theaters—Ex Machina and It Follows—you’ll have a chance to catch up with both this coming Tuesday.

Scream Factory is also keeping busy this week with their high-def release of Philippe Mora’s cult classic, Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf, and they also have two double feature Blu-rays coming out as well. Severin Films has put together an extensive special edition release of the recent documentary Lost Soul, which follows the troubled production of Richard Stanley’s Island of Doctor Moreau and looks pretty incredible and for all you X-Men fans out there, the Rogue Cut version of Days »

Exclusive: Philippe Mora Discusses Howling II & Working with Christopher Lee

3 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I unabashedly love Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf and, on July 14, the patron saints of classic cult film- Scream Factory- are resurrecting Philippe Mora’s sequel on Blu-ray. In honor of its release, I was fortunate to be able to speak with Mora about his experiences working on the film, collaborating with both Sybil Danning and the legendary Christopher Lee, and how the latter had quite a lifetime of experiences even before he became one of the greatest actors to grace the silver screen.

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me, Philippe- I am a huge fan of Howling II and I even have an original one-sheet hanging in my kitchen.

Philippe Mora: Oh, thank you so much! Let me tell you how that image came about. One day we were filming a scene with Sybil who is supposed to be in »

‘Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films’ Review

2 June 2015 3:06 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Recent years have been Very good for fans of psychotronic cinema, especially when it comes to documentaries. We have had Jake West’s Video Nasties: Draconian Days, his follow up to Video Nasties: Moral Panic Censorship & Videotape, Andrew Leavould’s Search for Weng Weng, Wiktor Ericsson’s The Sarnos: A Life in Dirty Movies and my personal favourite, Mike Malloy’s wonderful Eurocrime! The Italian Cop and Gangster Films. Another film related documentary released this year was the highly anticipated Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films directed by Mark Hartley, who many cult film fans will know for his other documentaries, Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozsploitation, Machete Maidens Unleashed and his remake of Richard Franklin’s cult classic, Patrick. I remember hearing about Electric Boogaloo when it was still in the early stages of development. Ever since then I have been waiting with much anticipation. »
