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.   ____________________________

Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984) 

The 1984 instant classic Gremlins exemplifies Joe Dante’s unique voice as a filmmaker in an otherworldly horror film set in your very familiar backyard. The film tells the story of cinema’s cutest fuzzball, Gizmo, and the very big responsibility required to keep him from spawning terrifying, destructive little monsters. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, The Goonies), Gremlins was a unique box office smash in a summer full of hits.

The ’Burbs (Joe Dante, 1989) Starring Tom Hanks as everyman Ray Peterson, The ’Burbs tells the story of a neighborhood whose fences are just not tall enough. After a suspiciously creepy family moves in down the block, the neighbors can’t help but speculate wildly about the newcomers’ intent, which escalates into total suburbanite anarchy. Produced by another of Corman’s proteges, Ron Howard, and costarring Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and a young Corey Feldman, The ’Burbs is a gothic comedy about the all-American suburban way of life.
