Trivia

Despite the fact that this film states "Based on the novels 'The Howling I, II, and III' written by Gary Brandner", this film is in no way based on any of those novels, and is a sequel to the earlier Howling films in name only. See more »

Goofs

During most of the outdoor shots of the castle during the blizzard, strong winds can be heard whistling about, but the snow is falling nearly vertically. See more »

Not Bad (for a Howling movie)
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Howling V is my favorite so far out of all the Howling movies. However, that doesn't mean this is a good film. The acting is pretty bad and the effects are absolutely horrid, but the plot is decent enough to make it tolerable. This one, the original Howling, and Howling IV are the only ones worth watching out of the first 5 flicks. The Howling series is really really bad. Only true horror fanatics would be interested in them at all. The only worse horror series i have encountered is the Children of the Corn series. Howling V is pretty predictible and the characters aren't killed off fast enough, so it moves kind of slowly. The music played after each death is annoying too. Recommended for Horror/Werewolf fans. Rating 4 of 10.
