HOWLING III: THE MARSUPIALS (1987) Blu-ray review

Howling III: The Marsupials (1987) d. Phillipe Mora (Australia) (94 min)

Marsupial werewolves attempt to outwit and outlast their human counterparts in this offbeat horror sequel that has nothing to do with the previous two installments. Long ago, the now-extinct marsupial wolf (aka the Tasmanian Tiger) roamed the Australian Outback with its terrifying 180-degree jaw-opening capacity. Today, a werewolf colony that has descended from these marsupials has taken over the land. The race for survival is on as the humans struggle to contain these out-of-control creatures, and yes, it’s just as ridiculous as it sounds. Director Mora (The Beast Within, Howling II) claims the bonkers plotline and outrageous narrative and tone were intentionally designed to be over-the-top, but that doesn’t make the final product any less hodgepodge or inept or entertaining for all the wrong reasons.

Featuring Barry Otto, Imogen Annesley, Max Fairchild, Leigh Biolos, Dasha Blahova, Ralph Cotterill, and Barry Humphries.
