The Howling

It turns out that everyone in "The Colony", where Karen is sent to recuperate after her werewolf scare, is also a werewolf. Karen's husband (Bill) gets bitten, and in turn bites Karen during her harrowing escape. To warn people, Karen returns to her TV anchor job, turns into a werewolf on camera, and has her friend Chris kill her with a silver bullet. At a bar, some people watching TV have mixed reactions to Karen's transformation (some think it's real and some don't). A man orders a steak for a woman.. and it's Marsha (Eddie's sister) who survived the fire at The Colony...

Continuity mistake: After Karen has a nightmare on the couch, Bill comes in and comforts her. Karen's grip on Bill's shoulders changes between shots. The position of her head changes too. (00:13:30)

Donna: Haven't you ever done Assertiveness Training? Before I looked into the Doc, I did it all - EST, T.M., Scientology, iridology, Primal Scream... I don't know, I figure another five years of real hard work, and maybe I'll be a real human being.

Trivia: While giving a lecture at the Hollywood Scriptwriting Institute, director Joe Dante trash talked the novel "The Howling" on which the movie is based. One person in the audience raised his hand and asked, "So, you don't like the book, huh?" with Joe stating, "No, not really." The man responded that he was the one who wrote the novel. To Joe's surprise, the man in the audience was Gray Brandner, the author of "The Howling."
