Overview

The brother of a slain werewolf newscaster joins the battle against a lycanthropic femme fatale in this sequel to 1981's horror/humor update. Shortly after the events of the original The Howling, Ben White Reb Brown attends the funeral of his sister, journalist Karen White played here by Hana Ludvikova and by Dee Wallace in the original. There, he meets both Jenny Templeton Annie McEnroe, one of Karen's colleagues, and Stefan Crosscoe Christopher Lee, a mysterious interloper who claims the slain reporter was a newscaster. Providing videotaped evidence of the transformation -- and turning up to destroy Karen as her undead body rises from the grave -- Crosscoe convinces Ben and Jenny to accompany him to Transylvania to battle Stirba Sybil Danning, an immortal werewolf queen. Along the way, the do-gooders encounter Mariana Marsha Hunt, another lusty werewolf babe, and her minion Erle played by Fearless Vampire Killers veteran Ferdy Mayne. Arriving in the Balkans, Ben and company wander through an ethnic folk festival, unaware that Stirba is off in her castle having sex with other werewolves and plotting their downfall. Eventually, the adventurers do battle with Stirba in an assault that involves disguised dwarves, mutilated priests, supernatural parasites, and surprise revelations. Howling II is variously known as Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf and Stirba the Werewolf Bitch. Director Philippe Mora, who previously helmed The Return of Captain Invincible, would return for Howling III: The Marsupials.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Gray
With this witty update of the age-old werewolf genre, Roger Corman alumnus Joe Dante Gremlins helped breathe new life into a dormant myth -- An American Werewolf in London would soon follow. Dee Wallace-Stone E.T. portrays a TV news anchor whose harrowing brush with a supposed serial killer has left her deeply shaken. Recovering at the country retreat of a new age guru Patrick Macnee, Stone's character ultimately learns that the hills are alive with far more than the sound of music.... Dante fleshes out this modern tale of terror with plenty of throwaway humor -- copies of Thomas Wolfe's You Can't Go Home Again and Allen Ginsberg's Howl are seen lying around, and nearly all the main characters are named after directors of other werewolf movies. But Dante doesn't for a moment shortchange the central horror elements, which are enhanced immeasurably by his own brisk editing and Rob Bottin's state-of-the art makeup effects in the transformation scenes. John Sayles Lone Star, who'd previously collaborated with Dante on the Corman-produced Piranha, cowrote the playful script -- most trenchant in its satirical swipes at consciousness-raising groups like est -- and contributes a funny performance in a bit part as a morgue attendant. Fans of classic horror will enjoy seeing the great John Carradine and Kevin McCarthy in small roles, as well as veteran character actors Dick Miller and Slim Pickens playing -- who else? -- the local sheriff. And if you pay extra-close attention, you'll even notice Corman himself in a brief cameo, waiting outside a phone booth.
