Why are they so wet? Besides that question, there are others I have for Howling III: The Marsupials (1987). Starting out, it felt like any other 80s horror film, introducing characters and building the tension. I wish it would’ve stayed like that.
There are some great scenes, like when Donny takes Jerboa to see a werewolf movie; I enjoyed it because of the absurdity and her commentary as they watched it. This leads me to my opening question. Why are they so wet? It appears that a tidal wave soaked them several times and soaked them, but nothing else around them.
While there are one or two good scare scenes, the remainder of the movie is a total romance and a strange one at that. Even the were-marsupials are underwhelming. Compared to werewolf movies in the same period, this was not the best display of the genre; I chuckle thinking this, but Howling II was better, and I’m not a fan of it either. So why do I keep watching them? Because I can’t stop myself when I find one out in the digital air.
Thinking of what Howling III offered and comparing it to current horror, it really isn’t as bad as I’d like you to believe. I gave it 3 out of 5 Stars.While Howling III: The Marsupials tried to scare me, but most of the time I kept wondering why they were so wet. Click To Tweet
