Howling V: The Rebirth

By Bryan Reesman

This 1989 Howling entry gives horror and mystery clichés a stimulating twist. A mysterious Hungarian count invites nine celebrities and celebrities-in-training to attend the reopening of a Budapest castle after 500 years. What the group does not know is that the castle was sealed after a clan of werewolves committed suicide to prevent their familial evil from infecting the world. However, a baby survived, and the implication is that someone among the assembled is a lycanthropic descendant of that child. What follows is a murder mystery in which each member of the group is picked off one by one by the werewolf. Despite his blatantly low budget, and a slightly awkward opening sequence, director Neal Sundstrom does a good job translating Clive Turner and Freddie Rowe's decent screenplay. The real-life castle location is a fantastic character unto itself, and the cast breathe life into their roles and overcome some pedestrian dialogue to make them genuinely likeable (or in a few cases, at least charmingly disagreeable). It may not be at the same level as the original Howling or An American Werewolf in London, but Howling V is fun and provides a genuinely surprising ending.
