Terry Milburn), Tina Landini (Camper), Craig Conway (Camper), Vilrikke’s Acer (Sam the Dog), Bryn Walters (Werewolf), Ben Wright (Werewolf), Brian Claxton Payne (Werewolf)

Werewolf movies can truly be hits and misses. They are like slasher movies because you feel like you are watching the same plot in every movie that is made about them. This movie is unique as it breaks apart from the traditional format for werewolves in the conventional sense. Thankfully, it is very difficult to get bored during this British horror film!

The plot begins with a group of British military men on a training

DVD Review - The Howling: Reborn (2011)

The Howling Reborn, 2011.

Directed by Joe Nimziki.

Starring Landon Liboiron, Lindsey Shaw, Ivana Milicevic, Jesse Rath, Niels Schneider, Frank Schorpion and Kristian Hodko.

Synopsis:

A high-school loner finally bonds with the girl of his dreams, only to discover a dark secret from his past... that he is heir to a powerful line of werewolves.

A nice change from the usual supernatural beings vs. supernatural beings storyline, The Howling: Reborn focuses upon just one member of the group. I think out of all them, I might choose to become a werewolf if I were given a choice. Sure, vampires and monsters are cool but do you really want to live forever and drink nothing but blood all the time? With werewolves, you still get the super strength, fast healing powers and for some reason they always look like they’ve spent an eternity in the gym. You still get to eat

The Howling: Reborn (Review)

2011 - 90 mins. - Rated R

D: Joe Nimziki

C: Lindsey Shaw, Landon Liboiron, Ivana Milicevic, Erin Agostino, Kristian Hodko

A teenager, on the eve of his high school graduation, discovers that he is really a werewolf. Will he succumb to a pack that wants him to give into his animal tendencies or will he be able to control them?

Well made, well acted entry in The Howling franchise is certainly an improvement over all of the entries that followed the original, but what it lacks is distinction or anything that makes it remotely memorable, because their is a bit of a distance between the viewer & the film. Overall, this entry is entertaining as the pacing never allows for the film to lag, but the story lacks any real depth or substance. We get brief little glimpses into who the characters are, but the film fails to provide any meaningful dialogue

Blu Ray Releases (10/18): Red State of the Union

Hey there, fellow horror fanatics! This week we are getting a decent assortment of Blus that will keep you entertained. Hopefully you can pull yourself away from Batman: Arkham City long enough to enjoy some of the titles coming out. I don’t blame you if you are unable to though, from what I hear, that game is the Shit!

Batman: Year One

I’m a sucker for animated films based on comics. Specifically I am a sucker for DC, they are more character driven then say Marvel. Dark Horse is good as well, but I am getting off topic. Like most of these films, it’s built off the fiction of past graphic novels/series. Frank Miller wrote the original series, which I have read and find sophisticated in it’s themes. I need to see this, as do you!

Cape Fear

Finally! I feel like this film should have been released awhile ago,

Title: The Howling: Reborn Directed by: Joe Nimziki Starring: Landon Liboiron (TV’s ‘Terra Nova,’ ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’), Lindsey Shaw (TV’s ’10 Things I Hate about You,’ ‘Pretty Little Liars’) and Ivana Milicevic (‘Casino Royale,’ ‘Vanilla Sky’) Rebooting a successful 1980-90s horror franchise is often a nerve-racking experience for filmmakers, as they have to create a unique story that stays true to the original series.

The Howling: Reborn...Not!: A Movie Review

Director: Joe Nimziki.

Writers: Joe Nimziki, and James Robert Johnston.

Cast: Landon Liboiron, Ivana Milicevic and Lindsey Shaw

DVD Release Date: October 18th, 2011.

The Howling: Reborn does nothing to reinvigorate the dying werewolf genre. They have sadly become a creature of romance fiction, representing unbridled passions and carnal desires. In folklore they can be people who are paying penance for their sins or simple country folk cursed by gypsies. These were creatures that were once feared.

In the films of today, they are merely representations of kinship and they exude a different kind of sexuality that not even Dracula could emulate. It is not just a gang war where the leaders are vying for the affections of a girl. The romantic angle can hardly be avoided, and for those fans of Twilight, they may like this film. It cleverly blends the "Smallville" formula with shades of Harry Potter. There is romance,

The Howling: Reborn (2011) Review

by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

The Howling: Reborn marks the eighth instalment in the series that all began with a little horror film, based on a novel by Gary Brandner and directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole), that showcased some fantastic make up work with some amusing tongue-in-cheek humour. Now, I’m no expert on the following entries into the franchise – I’ve only caught Howling III, and that just so happens to be one of the worst film’s I’ve ever seen - but a reboot of the series had me intrigued.

It had been a good while since I saw a terrific werewolf film – the last great one was 2002’s Dog Soldiers – so I decided to check this one out.

The end of high school is just around the corner and Will Kidman (Landon Liboiron) is still figuring out how to approach his long-time secret crush,
