good documentary, Dee Wallace is a loon though
27 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 54 minute documentary on "The Howling" can be found on Side B of the special Edition DVD of the aforementioned movie. It goes into detail about the origins of the movie, how they had to re-write the screenplay multiple times, the psychological aspect of the film, how they choose to update the werewolf myth. Joe Dante talks about "Hollywood Blvd." and "Piranha" briefly, as well as the casting of the various actors and actresses. Dee Wallace comes off as a bit of a loon. And much more. I liked this documentary, you can watch it in 5 parts or in one lump sum. It was MUCH better then the 8 minute promo piece that's on the same disk.

My Grade: B
