Howl (2015) Review:

The werewolf sub-genre isn’t one of my favorite in the horror panel, because I think it usually lacks originality. Howl is no exception and, aside from being exclusively set in a train, there aren’t any differences with other werewolf movies around. It is kind of Dog Soldiers to meet Midnight Meat Train.

The all movie features less than 10 characters (werewolves excepted) stuck in a closed environment, something that always creates interesting proximity in movies, similarly to what you would experience in movies such as Cube, Exam or Devil. Likewise, the movie plays quite well the psychological card and the interactions between the various characters are credible.

The best things about Howl is clearly the look of the werewolf. At one point, one of the werewolves appears at the door of the wagon and start breaking in – revealing one of the ugliest and scariest werewolf make-ups ever made. The movie has its moments and while the attacks are stressful, there are quite a few empty scenes in between. Still, this was a good watch and one that I would happily recommend to anyone into werewolves.
