  • ~ The Howling makes its way to 4K UHD! ~
    Verified BuyerReviewed by 93Vet - 2 mars 2022

    The Howling, a 1980 werewolf movie is still one of my all-time favorites. Now, a brand new 4K restoration and great sound make this one to have. Dee Wallace plays a reporter on the hunt for a good story involving a recent string of homicides. They believe the man responsible stalks the seedy part of L.A./Hollywood. Once she is drawn into the fact that the man doing the killings is not even human, things get weirder. Her mental state is affected by a recent encounter known only as Eddie. A well-known doctor now talks her and her husband into coming to a secluded getaway in the forest called The Colony. It's a very special place, one in which all the inhabitants are werewolves themselves. The doctor, played by veteran actor Patrick Macnee (A View to a Kill), is supposedly the anchor of the group, but an intelligent woman leader of the bunch says otherwise. After a shootout ensues with Dee Wallace's character Karen and her close male friend, they seem to make it out alive. Fate says not so fast as the two survivors tell their story on live TV News in an ending for the horror record books. The movie looks spectacular on the 4K equipment and sound is superb for a 1980 horror movie. I heard sounds I had not heard before when I played this back through the sound bar. All special features have been brought over from previous editions and we get a few new interviews as well. The main one is with Dee Wallace talking about making the movie and having it still revered all these 40 some years later. She still looks great!

  • Shout's newest 4k is a real find!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mlofferosky - 14 mars 2022

    Shout Factory knocks it out of the park with it's 4k UHD restoration of "The Hoeling". I wasn't the biggest fan of the film the first time i ever saw it but upon each additional watch the film has looked better and better. This is the best way to have rewatched and the film looks incredible. I cannot recommend this enough. A great release from shout and a treasure for cult film fans. Fans of werewolf films and director Joe Dante's work will want this too.

  • Finally on 4K.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tomsreview12 - 21 février 2022

    One of my favorite werewolf movies of all time, along with one of the best transformation scenes in cinema history. The tone and the atmosphere that this movie evokes, always draws me in. I tell ya, it really looks and sounds good in this 4k format. For fans of this cult flick, It's essential that this be in your collection.

  • Aaaa-wooooooooo
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Doctorvalentine - 16 mars 2022

    Not as good as American Werewolf in London but close. The transformation scene is long and super weird but that’s a good thing. 4K transfer looks solid and maintains original grain. The softness in some scenes is intention for the look of the film. Great slate of special features too. Scream factory put out excellent discs.

  • Stunning 4K quality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by deadman36g - 15 mars 2022

    I am so happy that Scream Factory has decided to jump on the 4K bandwagon and bring us all these delicious releases. The ones released so far have all been stellar and I hope that the trend continues. The Howling is an excellent upgrade to what you have already seen and worthy of a spot on your shelf.
