Howl, indeed!
19 July 2008 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Just viewed "The Howl" in its entirety on the big screen at the Egyptian Theater here in Hollywood tonight. Aptly named. Italian Freakout '70. Makes "Gas-s-s-s" (1970) look like a brief Sunday school production. Some very compelling scenes. But a bit of an endurance test. Avoid if you can't take watching a duck get its head lopped off in closeup (the lady behind me didn't like that too much). Lots of nudity, lots of talking, a fair amount of violence, and, being a late-60's/early-70's movie, lots of people running around outside. Zero story. Big on visuals, social commentary, and ideas. Surreal, somewhat disturbing, at times beautiful. They sure don't make 'em like this any more. Pretty interesting soundtrack, as well. The sound was REALLY good on the print I just viewed.
