A successful author was sent to the small town Drago because of a nervous breakdown, and gets wound up in a mysterious mystery about demons and werewolves. She starts seeing ghosts and dismisses them as her own imagination, but when they turn out to be real, she starts to get suspicious of the small town and of its past. But at the heart of this scenic, serene village is much darker than its benign appearance; and while she hopes her vacation will dispel her visions, a sinister presence has drawn her there. Soon she will discover that the ghosts that have haunted her are real and that her horrific visions are a mysterious message. Written by

...but "The Original Nightmare" isn't awful. Actually, this entry is a fairly enjoyable one, with some good lines here and there and a decent lead performance. On the downside, all the other actors are horrendous, the pace is erratic and the sound quality lacking. "The Howling" series was never intended to be great cinema as anyone who has seen any of the seven films should know; even the first one, as entertaining as it is, isn't anything marvelous outside of good special effects. These are just horror films about werewolves, people. Whether the film is set in the Australian outback or in a carnival or in the woods or in a castle. We're talking about low-budget films about...werewolves. Brilliance just ain't gonna happen.
