Critic Reviews for Howling V: The Rebirth
Audience Reviews for Howling V: The Rebirth
The problem with this franchise is that they introduce interesting ideas for plots, but with poorly developed characters, bad actors and helmed by bad directors, these sequels always fall flat. The Howling franchise has had the misfortune of having some of the worst sequels in horror history. This film is yet another folly that doesn't deliver. You'd think that for a horror franchise, these films would deliver some terrifying thrills, right? Well this one follows the same path as previous and future sequels. This is a boring, unimpressive film with bad acting, a bad plot that leaves you uninterested in what's going on. The film really doesn't satisfy, and you keep wondering why they're making sequels to a great film. This fifth entry doesn't have any good horror elements, and you see that it's a tired effort that the screenwriters didn't put too much effort to try and create an effective, fun and thrilling horror film. At this point in the series, it was all about making a quick buck, and not caring about delivering a solid plot for a film. This is an awful film not worth your time. If you're looking for a good horror film, pass up on this, you definitely won't find it here. This is a missed opportunity that only delivers a bad plot with a bad cast of actors that really sink this film and makes The Howling franchise, aside from the first film, one of the worst series in horror.
