Not a sequel, a send-up!
I think perhaps the most apt comment should go to Christopher Lee himself who has often described HOWLING II as his own "personal embarrassment!" Since we have the film in our own library (in BETA format of course) we are probably the only family world-wide has seen it upwards of 20 times over the last 17 years....never fails to give us a laugh...I would almost "miss" it now! We all just watched it again tonight!

El cheapo film-making any which way you want to look at it...script, acting, direction, editing, production values, the early shot of the "werewolf" where they have only given the poor guy a "furry arm" the rest is normal! But hey...this is a fun many other films do you get to see a girl rip her bra off seventeen times during the closing credits. Sybil Danning should have received a "special Oscar" for this alone!

Tries to link itself to the original with the most pathetic re-shot footage of Dee Wallace Stone's demise in the original that looks absolutely nothing like her, not to mention the "body" in the coffin. Still ya gotta love the theme "In the pale pale night of the moon above"....

Hell, give it a break!

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


Director Philippe Mora stated that the image of Sybil Danning wearing the sunglasses as Stirba was so iconic in this movie that this started the trend in 1980s horror movies, where sunglasses became common, most notably in The Lost Boys (1987).


Stefan Crosscoe: For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am ...


The rifle that Ben was given by Stefan in the church, Stefan telling him that it belonged to Vasile, appears in the following forest scenes to be the exact same rifle Ben was carrying into the cemetery in L.A. earlier in the movie.

Crazy Credits

The closing credits run over what appear to be deleted scenes and alternate footage, along with the same scene of Sybil Danning ripping off her shirt, which is repeated 17 times.

Alternate Versions

The original HBO/Thorn tape release is dark and unwatchable, as well as cut. The cable version is bright and clear and features European folk music over the formerly silent end credits, but cut. The Republic/Lumiere tape release is bright and clear, (almost too bright in some suspense scenes), and was the longest version in existence until the release of the MGM DVD, which is not only uncut and in widescreen, but is bright, clear, and watchable. The Republic/Lumiere tape bears the retitling "Howling II: Stirba, Werewolf Bitch", while the DVD and the other VHS versions are still titled "Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf".
