Every year, Derrick Carey’s Astro Radio Z podcast looks at an entire film franchise from beginning to end on a multi-episode journey through that series’ evolution or degradation. In 2014, they looked at all 13 WITCHCRAFT films (and three more have been filmed since then, so expect a follow-up episode someday). In 2015, it was Rick Sloane’s VICE ACADEMY series, in which I was a bit nicer to the movies than the rest of the crew. And in 2016, the focus is shifted towards the HOWLING films.
My guess is some of you didn’t even realize that there are eight films in this series so far. In this episode, Astro Radio Z takes a look at the first three films in the series, starting with Joe Dante’s classic and continuing on for Phillippe Mora’s oddball sequels, HOWLING II: YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF and HOWLING III: THE MARSUPIALS.
On this episode, Carey is joined by Angelique Bone, Glenn Buettner, Mark “the Movie Man” Krawczyk, Seth Poulin, Andrew Shearer and me, of course. The show isn’t for the kiddies and there are spoilers, so be warned.
As of this year, ARZ is on YouTube so there are two ways to listen. I’ve embedded both links for the curious.
Hope you enjoy this look at the first three HOWLING films. You can expect the next episode, covering HOWLING 4-6 to drop in the next couple of weeks. And don’t forget to check out the other episodes and everything else on the Astro Radio Z Network!
