Trivia

Howling III (1987) uses only two elements from the novel "The Howling III" by Gary Brandner, those are: the werewolves being portrayed in a more sympathetic light and humans as a danger to their existence, and the experiments being performed on the werewolves such as hypnosis and forcing a transformation against their will.

Goofs

In this movie werewolves apparently die when they are shot. However, silver bullets are needed in the previous Howling movies. This could be because in this film they are technically were-thylacines rather than werewolves. See more »

Agent #1: Hey, have a look at this. Another K.G.B. intercept meaning "wolfman."
Agent #2: It has to be a code for *something.*
Agent #1: Doubt it is. Unless they know we're intercepting. "Werewolf was sighted near village of Leovich. Three villagers killed. Special army team are tracking monster." Well. Do we tell the powers that be?

Revenge of the 80's: The sequels.
22 June 2004 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Howling III (1987) was a big improvement over the last film, part two. But by all means it's not a great one either. Philippe Mora directs once again but this time with better results. The film takes place in Australia and the werewolves this time are marsupial in origin. Filled with a not of in jokes and tongue in cheek humor, this film is not that bad but the problem is that the film get's a little to glad handy and it collapses upon itself. Oh well, Mr. Mora should know better next time because he almost got it right. A plethora of aussie film stars have supporting roles as well, A big step over part two but nowhere as brilliant as part one.

Maybe next time!

Slightly recommended.

C

For some reason, the director went Mad Max and made part three P.G.-13. He should have stuck to his guns and made it an R rated flick. What happens when you take a film of this genre and try to conform it for the major market? You'll lose money and produce a mediocre film.
