As awful and needless a sequel as one could possibly envision...

One of the worst sequels ever.

Must be one of those movies Christopher Lee means when he says he never made any horror pictures, huh?

Audience Reviews for Howling II - Your Sister Is a Werewolf

Sequel to The Howling is a poorly conceived sequel in to a classic horror film. Director Phillippe Mora is the first of many directors to make pointless and unnecessary sequels to a great film. Howling II is a stupid, boring film that has nothing going for it. I absolutely hated this film, and I thought that the great Christopher Lee was wasted here. He's too good an actor to act in schlock like this. This might have been a good sequel, if the writers of the original and Dante himself would have been involved; unfortunately this film is the first of seven dreadful sequels that should never have been made in the first place. I thought that this film was simply awful, not engaging, entertaining or fun. Horror films should be fun, thrilling and scary. Howling was none of those things. Even Christopher Lee couldn't save this film, and this is one of the weakest films he's ever done. I mean the guy is such a horror icon from all the Hammer horror films he's done in the 50's to the classic Wicker Man, he's got a solid resume of horror films. But The Howling II is not such a film. This is a dreadful film that strips away everything we loved about Joe Dante's classic. A boring, unimpressive sequel to a great film, Howling II is the perfect example of how a studio can create a dud to cash in on the success of a great film. A film not worth watching.

When it comes to God-awful sequels this one is right up there (or down there depending on your perspective) with Chud II. So bad it's NOT even funny.

A horrible sequel to a good werewolf movie. Poor Christopher Lee doesn't get any good lines, and they story sucks, you feel bad for him. I do not recommend this movie, even if you loved the first one.
