by Anchor Bay
It’s hard to believe that The Howling franchise still exists. The first Howling film was a drive-in camp classic but the movies that followed were fun late night viewings on HBO at best. Well Anchor Bay is bringing us “an all new original chapter”, to quote the press release, in the series. Joe Nimziki directs the film which features Lindsey Shaw (10 Things I Hate About You), Landon Liboiron (Fox’s upcoming TV series Terra Nova) and Ivana Milicevic (Casino Royale, Vanilla Sky).
The Howling Reborn hits blu-ray and DVD on October 18! Read on to see the box art, a trailer, and get the official synopsis.
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.
