Critic Reviews for Howl

All Critics (12)

The werewolf may be the least over-used mythical monster in the horror pantheon. You've likely seen fewer werewolf movies than those with vampires or zombies but that doesn't mean that this hairy cousin is any less revered.

Howl is neither a biopic about the poem's author Allen Ginsberg, nor does it delve into any other poem in his literary oeuvre. These are the first of many missteps that the producers take.

It's fun, funny, creepy, and never overstays its welcome; sometimes that's all you want from a horror film.

Howl works best when we see less of those moon beasts.

January 15, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Engagingly sympathetic portrayals of stoical working women and harassed railway guards keep us on side as the action rattles through familiar generic junctions.

Even those well-acquainted with the genre should find enough to enjoy in the stylish set-pieces that feature plenty of bloody action.

Audience Reviews for Howl


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.
