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.

  • Soon it all gets bloody as the (somewhat unconvincing) lycanthrope goes loco on the locomotive.

  • Auspicious directing and acting, but ends with a whimper.

  • A werewolf movie without humour is like a vampire picture without prosthetic teeth.

  • The cast is good, the characters varied, and so are the attack scenes within the film's limited settings.

  • Although Howl is very funny throughout, it's also gory and bloody and often quite frightening, at the same time.

    October 3, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • The werewolf doesn't have a personality and Howl ultimately suffers from as well, never quite sure how serious to take its own characters and their predicament and yet never going the full on B-movie parody root.

    A train breaks down in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere, and there's a full moon in the sky. If you enjoy the idea of werewolves but are perhaps not happy with how they've been treated cinematically for say, ummm, the last 20 years or so, then close your eyes, tap your heels together 3 times, and turn around and give this one a chance ... you can go home again ... the first decent werewolf movie I've seen in, like, forever. And even scary, too. Zowie.

    "I am sick of these motherfucking werewolves on this motherfucking train!" Pulp-y Monster Movie with just enough going for it to keep you entertained.
