Last weekend I was lucky enough to watch the wonderfully terrible Howling II: My Sister is a Werewolf and I even have a copy at my house now that fellow cinematic masochist Daniel Roos was unwilling to take it home with him. Never heard of it? Well, maybe you heard of it by it’s other title: Howling II: Stirba – Werewolf Bitch. Terrible joke you say? Well, I counter with I wasn’t joking, that was actually the title upon release.
The film which was directed by Phillipe Mora begins with the funeral of journalist Karen White (the heroine from the first Howling film) which is attended by her brother Ben and her colleague Jenny as well as creepy Stefan played by the great Christopher Lee.

She makes her way to Sydney where she is discovered by Donny who gets her a job as an actress in a horror movie. When told she is going to get gang raped by four werewolves in the first scene she laughs thus indicating while she herself was raped, she has gotten over it in 48 hours.
