This film tries too hard., 22 June 2004

Howling VI (1991) was another entry in the never ending Howling saga. Thia one takes place in a small town. A sleazy little carnival is in town. Follow close by is a mysterious young man. The creepy owner of the carnival takes a liking to the kid. But does he have ulterior motives? The kid meets a nice young girl and the two become good friends. But the carny wants the girl too and what's left of the dying town.

Somewhat different take on the series. The ever so pretty Carol Lynley has a small role as the town's matriarch. Antonio Fargas has a small role as well. The shady Bruce Payne also co-stars in this bizarre flick that has a heavy jones for Paul Naschy films. Hey buddy, don't bite off the man. Try and be original for a change.

Mediocre stuff, but watchable.
