Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Hills Have Eyes) stars in this gritty werewolf tale that traverses the seedy urban world of sex shops as well as a natural commune of animal lovers. Wallace plays a city reporter who is attacked and nearly killed by a serial killer. As she takes time for herself and her husband in a folksy seaside rehabilitation center, she begins to realize that there’s more to these hippies than meets the eye. Penned by John Sayles and directed by the great Joe Dante, The Howling has all the scares you can sink your canine teeth into.
