Freaky, but not in a good way
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Supremely strange sequel has an interesting premise (werewolf vs. vampire) but with a horribly boring execution. A young drifter drifts into town, just as a traveling circus arrives. Carnival barker (named Harker) is kidnapping "freaks" to use in his circus, and has his sights set on the young drifter who, just happens, is a werewolf. Big problem with this film is that it seems like there are too many genres played with: character study of the werewolf drifter, character study of the smalltown's people, love story between werewolf drifter and preacher's daughter, werewolf movie, vampire movie, werewolf vs. vampire movie all confusingly rolled up into another ball of werewolf caca.

While the film does have some decent effects, as the drifter transforms into the werewolf during the full moon, what it doesn't have is a decent pacing, and a sense of humour. It also doesn't even have the benefit of on-location photography that the previous sequels had. And how in the bloody hell is any of this "based on the novels The Howling I, II, and III by Gary Brandner"?
