Howling III: The Marsupials

Howling III: The Marsupials ★★½

The director of Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf returns for an unrelated sequel that could have been called Howling III: Your Baby is a Werewolf. Or, more accurately a were-marsupial. Werewolves originating from tasmanian wolves, a carnivorous marsupial, is actually an interesting idea. Howling III doesn't know what to do with them though so it gives us a graphic birthing scene where the just born baby then travels to its mother's pouch.

Throwing out ideas and not knowing what to do with them is kind of Howling III's thing. There's a backwoods werewolf cult, werewolf nuns and a werewolf opera singer. Plus, the US government trying to track down werewolves based on communications it intercepted from Russia, the filming of a werewolf film called Shape Shifters Part 8, and an interspecies romance that results in the were-baby. It's a mess but it's so weird and goofy that it's hard to dislike.
