If you thought all or most of the previous Howling films sucked, prepare to be shocked. This is the worst looking, most poorly filmed, most awkwardly performed and most badly written one, so far, and it’s a horrendous musical, of all things. The irony is that the film strives to deliver scenes as if they were right out of a soap opera in order to tie in with the rest of the franchise and fails.
The previous entries have taken many faces. Howling 7 is the “country” one. How it shoehorns a werewolf subplot in and makes nothing of it is absolutely brutal. The weak narrative and the embarrassing dialogue are the last nails in the crumbling coffin that is The Howling. Taking into account you won’t see much werewolf action, but you know this already, better sit back and enjoy the drunk mess...
You might feel this release is nothing more than the product of pride and egocentrism. The non-actors are sure proud to be in it; proud to show they can square dance, proud of their lifestyle and proud of their music. The end result is an unbearable regurgitation. Don't hold your breath for werewolves outside the many scenes rehashed from previous films. In fact, expect lots of borrowed footage.
