Filming began with Clive Turner as the film's producer and director, and Vincent G. Cox as the director of photography. A few days into shooting, Turner's main financial backer pulled out, shutting down production and resulting in most of the crew quitting. As a result, Turner had to call in Harry Alan Towers to rescue the film, and Towers had John Hough replace Turner as the director. There was still very little money to finish shooting, which resulted in much of the film being shot without sound, hence why most of the characters in the film speak with their backs turned to the camera.

A nightmare certainly! wouldn't call it too original though!
Gives new meaning to the term "low budget movie!" Obviously someone decided, "Hey lets re-make the original HOWLING and get the series back on track?" Yeah well, you need a Director, actors and a script for that. When your budget runs to barely a week's supply of Big Macs this might be aiming a tad high!
This is one god-awful cheap-looking crappily acted mess with the most unsustainably fake and illogical werewolf transformation in history. Having the victim regress to a pile of glutinous mush then (quick reversal of film) reconstitute himself as a lycanthropic tease with major orthodontic problems? Huh???? not to mention the hour or so everyone's been yawning, wondering where the film actually is!
They even had the temerity to rip off the original's finale...herding all the K-mart inspired werewolves into a belltower for a spot of the old mass-destruction! Not that you can actually SEE anything!
For reasons of international "co-operation" shall we say, this abysmal flick was shot in South Africa with the majority of the cast being locals, needing to be dubbed into Anericanese during post-production. It shows!
