The Howling (Joe Dante, 1981) TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace) brashly interjects herself in the middle of a search for a serial killer, but in the process finds something much more sinister in Joe Dante’s werewolf thriller The Howling. Adapted by John Sayles for the screen from a novel by Gary Brandner, this continuation of Dante’s interest in the sinister, self-reflexive, and seedy is as amusing as it is disturbing.   ____________________________

 Kick back with cocktails and dinner in Café Modern, then enjoy a late-night cult classic.
