I went visiting the filming locations of the The Howling, a 1981 horror film directed by Joe Dante. Based on the novel of the same name by Gary Brandner, the screenplay is written by John Sayles and Terence H. Winkless. The original music score is composed by Pino Donaggio.

Plot : After assisting the police in capturing “Eddie Quist”(Robert Picardo)., a serial killer who had been preying on the homeless, news anchor Karen White (Dee Wallace-Stone) needs a rest and at her psychiatrist’s suggestion heads to The Colony, his own clinic. Her role in capturing Eddie had been quite traumatic and Karen can’t picture his face. Once at the clinic however, strange events lead her to believe that her life is in danger. What she does not realize is that the clinic is located near a den of werewolves.

The Howling was also notable for its special effects, which were considered to be extremely convincing at the time. The transformation scenes were created by Rob Bottin, who had also worked with Dante on Piranha. Rick Baker was the original effects artist for the film, but left the production to work on the John Landis film An American Werewolf in London, handing over the effects work to Rob Bottin. Bottin’s most celebrated effect was the on-screen transformation of Eddie Quist, which involved air bladders under latex facial applications to give the illusion of transformation.

The movie was mainly shot in Mendocino, CA.

    That’s my favorite horror film. Is it difficult to get to these locations? Can anybody get in in the house? Would you mind posting the exactly adress of each location? Thanks

    I hate Modern Movies.. Movies Died after the 80’s.. Everything is Digitzed and Leaves Nothing to Imagination..

  5. elpresidio on July 9, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Lucky I never saw any of the sequels nor did I know there were any to be tempted to watch them.

  12. Mr Pumpkinpatch on July 9, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Dee wallace is the mom of horror movies.

  13. Edward Winters on July 9, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    No I’m really serious, I think that the other great horror movie directors should make more of these type of special makeup effects horror films like this.

  14. Titan52berg on July 9, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Dee Wallace was such an attractive woman! Loved this movie! It scared the willies out of me when I first saw it in the theater! Especially the transformation of Eddie Quist! Definitely one of the most memorable werewolf films ever made! Yeah, American Werewolf was great as well, but it had an element of corny humor to it, while The Howling was a first class spooker!

  15. jeff deloach on July 9, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    Love this, really cool

  16. Ponerology on July 9, 2022 at 10:40 pm

  20. Dayan Carrillo on July 9, 2022 at 10:43 pm

  21. mikeggg1979 on July 9, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    One of the best werewolf movies in history. This was absolutely amazing. Now it’s all cgi it’s a joke

  22. Brian L. on July 9, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Another go-round with the great Dee Wallace. Wonderful work, Herve.

  23. Herve Attia on July 9, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Would be great to do. A lot must have changed since 1940…

  24. T.L. Byron on July 9, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Who keeps the place up?great its still there.

  25. Vengeance Gaming on July 9, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Okay I know people go on an don about how Underworld was. But still Howling has the best transformation. Underworld Transformations were in fact sped up with a bit  of CGI flare in the mix.

  26. James B on July 9, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Great old horror movie! 👍🏻

  27. Dean Fuller on July 9, 2022 at 10:48 pm

  32. Edward Winters on July 9, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    I seriously think all the new good directors, and co-producers ought to make millions to trillions of new Special Makeup Effects Horror Films like the ones they did back in the 80’s, and should do billions of many weird Monster Transformation Air-Bladders Makeup FX.

  33. Jayme Splendid on July 9, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    I miss your videos :{ did you die?

  34. jayson oro on July 9, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Joe Dante, almost like "John Landis" what I mean is An American Werewolf In London is directed by John Landis and The Howling is directed by Joe Dante, The Howling = Joe Dante & An American Werewolf In London = John Landis.

  35. Goblin GoodFella on July 9, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Howling pt5 was the best than the others!

  36. Sabrina Lounis on July 9, 2022 at 10:54 pm

  37. James Fabiano on July 9, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Any interest in doing any of the Howling sequels, or a 2011 horror movie, The Fields?

  38. John NY on July 9, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Impressive, as usual, Herve. I am surprised at how little this location had changed in 30 years.

  39. unuuk on July 9, 2022 at 10:56 pm
