Trivia

When Christopher Lee was cast in Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990), one of the first things he did was apologize to director Joe Dante (who directed The Howling (1981)) for being in this film. See more »

Goofs

When Christopher Lee reads from the Book of Revelations his Bible is opened near the middle. But this book is the last book of the Bible. Visually, it probably wouldn't have looked as good if the book was opened to the end, plus balancing it in his hand with all the weight on one side would have been difficult. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Stefan Crosscoe: For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."

Not a sequel, a send-up!
2 July 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I think perhaps the most apt comment should go to Christopher Lee himself who has often described HOWLING II as his own "personal embarrassment!" Since we have the film in our own library (in BETA format of course) we are probably the only family world-wide has seen it upwards of 20 times over the last 17 years....never fails to give us a laugh...I would almost "miss" it now! We all just watched it again tonight!

El cheapo film-making any which way you want to look at it...script, acting, direction, editing, production values, fx...love the early shot of the "werewolf" where they have only given the poor guy a "furry arm" the rest is normal! But hey...this is a fun movie....how many other films do you get to see a girl rip her bra off seventeen times during the closing credits. Sybil Danning should have received a "special Oscar" for this alone!

Tries to link itself to the original with the most pathetic re-shot footage of Dee Wallace Stone's demise in the original that looks absolutely nothing like her, not to mention the "body" in the coffin. Still ya gotta love the theme "In the pale pale night of the moon above"....

Hell, give it a break!
