Review of Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf

There have been any number of bad sequels to good movies — but few sequels have been as bad as Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf. There’s a host of reasons for that.  Bad acting, bad makeup, bad special effects that they look like they were made on somebody’s home computer.  It’s a fairly long list.

The only good acting in Howling II is courtesy of horror movie veteran Christopher Lee, who turns in the good performance that we’ve come to expect. Unfortunately, the rest of the acting brings the movie down and makes Lee’s performance appear to be campy. The cliches come fast and furious, the plot is predictable, and the pacing appears slow.

Does Howling II have anything to commend it? Well, Sybil Danning flashes her cleavage a lot — it’s a poor excuse for acting ability. It’s one of those movies that are so bad that it’s enjoyable to watch with friends …. And make fun of it.
