Conclusion: Howling III: The Marsupials (1987) Film Review

I reviewed the first two Howling films a while back and I didn’t enjoy either of them. This third outing is no better in fact is just plain silly without any real point. It’s not a great comedy horror or regular horror. I strongly recommend giving it a miss.

Conclusion: Howling III Blu-ray Review

The bad news is this version I’m reviewing is a blu-ray import. The good news is the picture quality is very good. It’s only during the dark scenes where the image becomes a little noisy.

If you did like the movie then the included extras are pretty good and worth a look.
