Overview

A high school senior learns he descends from a long line of werewolves, and attempts to choose between embracing his inner-beast and holding on to his humanity as the long-running horror franchise returns. Will Kidman (Landon Liboiron) is your typical teenager; he's got an eye for girls, and lately his gaze has been lingering on a gorgeous classmate (Lindsey Shaw). Meanwhile, an enigmatic woman (Ivana Milicevic) from Will's distant past resurfaces with a shocking revelation: Will's ancestors were lycanthropes, and now he will inherit the secrets of their incredible power. But when Will realizes that embracing his destiny will spell certain death for the girl he loves, he prepares to make a choice that could spell the end of his monstrous bloodline, and incur the wrath of the very creatures that have claimed him as one of their own.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Howling Reborn is a rotten mix of Twilight, Fright Night, and Harry Potter, although to its credit, the picture does sport a super silly werewolf fight at the end complete with dummy dude grunts (yes, that's literally the best that can be said about it). Curious to note: Gary Brandner's Howling II novel is credited as being the story the film is based on, which is a thoroughly bogus claim since that book is a direct sequel to the first film
ovel and absolutely zero to do with this cash grab at the sad teen creature market. It seems fitting that the franchise continues in this kind of dull fashion considering that the series went straight downhill after the campy (and rather entertaining) Ozploitation outing, Howling III: The Marsupials. If by any chance you do sit through it, the end credits provide a setup for large-scale sequel that is far more delectable than anything that was presented in the rest of this embarrassing dreck.

Excellent This is a powerful coming of age movie, Werewolf stile. Will was born a Werewolf, his dad spent Will's whole suppressing that. The wolf started awakening near graduation. A pack of whole sought to recruit him, and tried to kill the girl he'd loved from afar for years. Will reveals him self to her, turns her, and they destroy the pack. This is a Werewolf movie done very well.
