Bringing the scares to Halloween, the classic werewolf franchise is back as Anchor Bay Entertainment unleashes The Howling: Reborn on DVD October 18th, and M&C’s giving away five copies!
The Howling began enthralling fans more than 30 years ago, with the 1977 publication of Gary Brandner’s best-selling novel and the 1981 film adaptation written by Academy Award nominated screenwriter John Sayles (Lone Star, The Spiderwick Chronicles) and directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, InnerSpace).
The film’s success ushered in a new era of screen werewolves, as well as the six “Howling” sequels that followed.
The all-new, original chapter in The Howling franchise was directed by Joe Nimziki and stars Lindsey Shaw (“Pretty Little Liars,” “10 Things I Hate About You”), Landon Liboiron (Fox’s upcoming series “Terra Nova,” “Degrassi: The Next Generation”) and Ivana Milicevic (Casino Royale, Vanilla Sky).
The film combines romance, action and thrills that will have audiences worldwide embracing their inner lycanthrope! The creatures for The Howling Reborn were brought to life by 2010 Academy-Award nominee Adrian Morot (300, Night at the Museum 2), and the score produced by award-winning composer Klaus Badelt (Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean).
On the eve of his high school graduation, Will Kidman (Liboiron) finally looks up from his books to catch the eye of the girl he’s longed for the last four years –the mysterious Eliana Wynter (Shaw).
He’s always been the shy kid, flying under the radar, but when he discovers a dark secret from his past— that he is heir to a powerful line of werewolves -- he finds he has a choice to make between succumbing to his primal nature, or turning against his own, and maintaining his humanity.
In order to fight the destiny of his legacy, and save Eliana – as well as himself – he must battle not only his growing blood lust but an army of fearsome beasts bent on killing him, Eliana...and then, us all.
Bonus features on The Howling Reborn DVD will include filmmakers’ commentary and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
