Excerpt: I have always had a soft spot for 'The Howling' franchise....Part 1 thru 6 that is. New Moon Rising....that's not a 'Howling' movie. It's not anything really. Anyway, this new film plays for the most part in the same ways like 'Twlight'. It takes place mainly at a local High School where 2 teens, Will Kidman (Landon Liboiron) and Eliana Winter (Lindsey Shaw), both get locked inside the High School with a pack of werewolves. I'll leave the plots for you to find out.
Conclusion: I have always been a massive fan of the original 1980 Joe Dante movie, but the less said about the pathetic sequels the better. Howling Reborn does raise the bar dramaticaly on the sequels (not a hard thing to do) but if you think you'll see a film reflecting the originals menace mixed with laughs you'll be disappointed. Howling Reborn is a cross between Twilight and Teen Wolf.
