William Katt returns in his role from the original but that's really the only connection to the rest of the series one can find. Katt dies in a car wreck and his widow has to solve his murder (his brother-in-law set it up to buy the titular house for a dwarf mobster) as supernatural goings on are... Well, going on. It's sort of okay in an in one ear, out the other way. The talking pizza gag is decent.
Two years later, the android was back, this time threatening to nuke the world. I'd love to see it but not for the amount I'd have to pay, same goes for the third film which puts the franchise into space, because that always works out well.* Honestly, they're pretty much your average DTV action films from the mid 90's. More than like the trailers before the actual film on the video tape were more of a draw. At least the box look cool.
*Actually, I rather like Leprechaun 4 and Jason X as guilty pleasures but still!
covered on the blog and honestly, there isn't a whole lot more I can say about it. The unrated version is the one to see if you must watch it. Outside of that... really not much. I sort of dig the New Line releases that came on on RCA/Columbia Home Video though, before they got their own label.
covered this abomination along with two other Howling sequels a few years back so to summarize: It's just plain terrible. A dull, utterly pointless vanity project for the director/star/bunch of other things Clive Turner who manages to do what not even the second film could do, kill the franchise stone dead.
I think that's enough for now. Stay tuned for more (hopefully better movies) at a later date.
