Howling V: The Rebirth

Howling V: The Rebirth Information

Howling V: The Rebirth is a 1989 direct-to-video horror sequel to The Howling. It was directed by Neal Sundstrom from the screenplay by Freddie Rowe and Clive Turner, and filmed in Budapest, Hungary.

Like most of the other The Howling films, it is only loosely based on "The Howling" series of novels by Gary Brandner. While the plot of this film seems largely derivative of The Beast Must Die, the setting of a large castle (rather than that film's mansion) and the castle's backstory are taken from the narrative of the original The Howling novel, where it served as the backstory of a town named Dradja.

It stars Phil Davis, Victoria Catlin, Elizabeth She, Ben Cole, and William Shockley. 96 minutes, rated R. The movie was released on 2 DVD copies as a double feature with Howling VI: The Freaks in 2003 by Artisan Home Entertainment and in 2007 by Timeless Media Group.


After being shuttered for over 500 years following a horrific, intentionally staged family massacre, a mysterious Hungarian castle opens its doors with the apparent intention of attracting tourist business. A diverse group of people from different parts of the globe is assembled at the eerie dwelling after having been chosen when they applied for a visa. But once they arrive some begin to wonder if there is more going on than meets the eye. First they hear terrible stories about savage packs of wolves that used to roam the area and then people begin to disappear, only some of whom are found later with their throats torn out. It soon becomes clear that a murderer is among them, and the culprit may only partially be human.

However, as the story progresses and the ultimate truth is revealed, ties between predator, prey and the very castle itself will be fatally exposed.
