Howl (2015)

Howl 2015 poster

Movie Info :

Young ambitious ticket collector Joe is overseeing the last train out of London on a dark and stormy night - the usual collection of passengers on board from the obnoxious teen to the workaholic businesswoman. Suddenly the train screeches to a halt in a forest after hitting something on the tracks, but the investigating driver never returns.

My Review :

Howl is a good example of how to do werewolves in modern day correctly. Howl has a really unique spin on the usual werewolf film having the whole movie take place in one location (a train) were the main characters are pitted against werewolves lurking in the woods outside. I really enjoyed this movie. It's full of laughs and scares as well as really creepy werewolves. This movie oozes tension and atmosphere. It's really fantastic. The werewolves themselves are really well handled. They are a mix of the huge biped werewolves that you see in Dog Soldiers, Bad Moon etc and the Wolf Man design. They came off as creepy and the way they acted and moved added to the scare factor. There is a few uses of CGI in the movie which I don't think looks all that good but it's so small that it doesn't take up much time and practical effects are used most of the time which look good. If you're looking for a good modern werewolf movie then check this out because it stands as one among the very few great werewolf movies.

My Rating :

rating 4
