The Howling

The Howling is a 1981 horror film featuring werewolves. It's definitely dated and hasn't aged well. It has multiple werewolves and onscreen dramatic depictions of the transformations. I saw some actors I know from their other work: Patrick MacNee, John Carradine, Slim Pickens, Robert Picardo (Star Trek connection) and Noble Willingham (Star Trek connection). Roger Corman and Forrest Ackerman have cameos.

1000 Misspent Hours says,
The Howling is such a potent reworking of its age-old subject that it’s easy enough to understand how it could spawn six or more sequels over the next fifteen years.
Moria gives it 3 stars. Roger Ebert gives it 2 stars and a review that's one of the least informative I've ever read.
