Howl (2015)

Directed by Paul Hyett. Written by Mark Heckerby and Nick Ostler. Starring Ed Speleers, Holly Weston, Shauna MacDonald, Elliot Cowan, Rosie Day, Calvin Dean, Sam Gittins, Amit Shah, Duncan Preston, Ania Marson and Sean Pertwee.

Plot: an ambitious ticket collector, the girl of his dreams and several passangers become trapped in a train that is attacked by a werewolf.

Train guard, Joe (Speleers) is a real go-getter. He wanted a promotion, he doesn’t get it, he feels like a heel. But as soon as his one shift ends, he takes an opening on the night shift with Ellen (Weston), his crush. Ellen works on the train, too, as the tea-trolley girl (look it up) and he plans to ask her out that night. But things constantly get in between them: the train breaking down, the train driver (Pertwee) going missing, almost every one of the passangers being a dick about it.

This British horror movie boasts to be the best werewolf movie since An American Werewolf in London and it may just be. DJ especially likes werewolves and he really liked this one. As a matter of fact, DJ liked this movie MORE than Werewolf in London. We really liked the specials. The werewolves are particularly frightening. Only one thing really that everyone in these movies forget:

******SPOILER ALERT******



Why does everyone assume that there’s only ONE monster? Wouldn’t you rather assume there’s many? At least a family perhaps? It boggles my mind. And of course, the fact that there’s so many comes into play and it’s not good for anyone.

My score: 61. DJ’s score: 65.
