Why is This Series Still Going?
12 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A villainous carnival owner (Bruce Payne) captures a young werewolf and adds the man into his traveling sideshow of human oddities and (as the title says) freaks.

Leonard Maltin said the film is "Intelligentally written, especially for this series, but pretentious with vague Ray Bradburyesque undertones". That may be fair. I would not have even thrown in the "intelligently written" part, but within the context of the series... sure.

The DVD & Video Guide 2004 noted that "Special effects that leave a lot to be desired diminish this really strange entry in the long-running werewolf series". Fair, and to put this in context, there are not all that many special effects.

Another reviewer stated that "H. B. Harker played by Bruce Payne is the one thing that makes this film watchable. His unrepentantly evil Harker is wonderful, aristocratic, neither over or underplayed." I will agree that Payne is the strongest actor in the film, with the strongest character. I actually found the film as a whole very watchable, though it has less horror and less werewolf than you might want from a "Howling" film.
