This is SO bad
Verified purchase
The one good thing is the lead female is quite attractive. Too bad she was in this film--too bad ANYONE was in this film. The development of the story (such as it is) isn't all that bad. A bit jerky, approaching haphazard at times. But in general, the film is pretty much unwatchable. The whole marsupial birth scene showing what amounts to a fur bikini and apron representing the mother's "hairy" animalistic lower extremities is utterly ridiculous. No one can suspend their disbelief that much. Not to mention it's just silly. And the fish eye lens scenes that go on for WAY too long are also WAY too numerous. In a word, avoid.

Mistakes Were Made

I watched The Howling 3 expecting it to be good bad like The Howling 2 (which come on Amazon, why isn't The Howling 2 available in America?)

You will realize very quickly this movie has a lot of things going on and little to no plot. There is also a bizarre birthing scene which for 80s standards wasn't too bad, but was not expecting to see werewolf baby emerge from the fake pubic hair.

Not going to reem the movie for being bad, however, I will reem the movie for being longer than something like this should have been. Not even a credit scene with Cybil Danning ripping her shirt off to the beat would save The Howling 3.

Mora should be ashamed!
Verified purchase
Mora should be ashamed to have written and directed this garbage. It shouldn't have a title anything like the original Howling, which actually broke new ground. This "film" (loosely so called) is a disjointed mess that destroys brain cells. Just a snippet of "dialog" from early in this steaming pile to warn you off:

"Why do you want to run away from home?"

"Because my stepdad raped me, and he's a werewolf."

And the "transformations" are so bad and low-budget that you are in awe only of how silly they are.

This "film" is indescribably bad. If you're looking for anything even remotely resembling The Howling, this is NOT it!

worst of the litter
Verified purchase
boys and girls don't let your parents see this. I would review the plot but there really isn't one. some sort of Tasmanian wolf except not a wolf or a tiger but a marsupial which is listed as extinct from 1936 but there are supposedly numerous sightings every year. I know this review does not make any sense but hell, neither does the movie.

"This Was The Worst Howling Film Ever...But Part Of The Series!"
Verified purchase
I think every horror film series has it's really bad film parts. Like I love Friday The 13th series but Friday The 13th Part V: The New Beginning was completely terrible but it's part of the series. Just like this one. I really think this was plain terrible but it's part of the series. Some horror fans might like it. The acting was terrible. The effects were good. The storyline wasn't believable or realistic. It was a little too silly. Why waste my time with it so I just fast forward it. I don't recommend it.

Wrong. They are marsupials.
This is the last Howling movie to play in U.S. theaters. Gary Brandner, author of the Howling novels, approved director Philippe Mora's purchase of the rights to his novels. The credits even claim that this is based on his book The Howling III: Echoes. But in truth, it has a different setting and really only has werewolves as sympathetic characters.

Professor Harry Beckmeyer is an Australian anthropologist who has found footage of aborigines sacrificing a wolf creature in 1905. After hearing that a werewolf has killed a man in Siberia, he tries - and fails - to warn the President of the U.S. about the potential of lycan assaults.

Meanwhile, an abused girl who just might so happen to be a werewolf is running away from home. Her name is Jerboa and after meeting a young American named Donny Martin, she gets a role in the horror film, Shape Shifters Part 8. She gets into horror movies and after watching a werewolf film with Donny, she reveals that transformations don't happen that way. He asks her how she knows, she goes full furry beast and he responds as we all would, by engaging her in some interspecies aardvarking.

As the movie wraps, strobe lights cause Jerboa to transform. She runs into the night and is hit by a car. When the doctors try to save her, they notice that she is with child and has a marsupial-like pouch on her belly. Holy cow, this movie! I can't believe that I watched that, much less typed it out for you to read.

There's also a Russian ballerina that happens to be a werewolf, because I guess if you bark at the moon you have really wonderful artistic abilities as a bonus secondary mutation.

Suffice to say that you should stick with this movie, if only to see Dame Edna out of drag as Barry Humphries and a pack of werewolves go wild at the cheapest looking Academy Awards outside of The Lonely Lady.

Phillipe Mora has made some out there movies, like The Beast Within, The Howling II, The Return of Captain Invincible, Pterodactyl Woman from Beverly Hills and many more. His films aren't always great, but they're never boring.
