Episode XXVII: Joe Dante’s The Howling – Oct. 1st, 2013

Terror you can sink your teeth into….

One man that showed a lot of class when we met him at Fan Expo was Joe Dante. This was the man that gave us Gremlins when we were kids. He thrilled us with The Burbs and gave us another reason to fear the open water in 1978’s Piranha. In the early 80s there was a rash of lycanthropy horror films. Werewolves were all the rage. Among these monster movie gems was Dante’s The Howling starring Dee Wallace with horror veterans Kevin McCarthy and John Carradine. The Howling was a combination of excellent writing, a strong cast, smart direction and state of the art special effects by many skilled hands, including Rob Bottin and Rick Baker. This is just the film to sink your teeth into. Join us as we celebrate classic 80s werewolf goodness!
