The Howling Trilogy: The Marsupials: The Howling III (1987) / The Howling V: Rebirth (1989) / The Howling VI: The Freaks (1991)

Movie: 3/5
Video: 1.5/5
Audio: 3/5
Extras: 0/5
Overall: 2/5

Not A Trilogy!

I am going to be breaking these down individually.

The Masupials: The Howling 3:

The story revolves around a scientist who uncovers footage from the early 1900's of a werewolf and insists that they do exist. Then, a group of individuals who live in the town of "Flow" are a secret race of "Marsupial-Humans". The beautiful Imogen Annesley plays Jerboa who meets a local and soon all hell breaks loose as she has an offspring.

This movie is horribly bad, yet funny at the same time. 2.5/5. The biggest and I mean BIGGEST problem with this video is that it's cropped from 1.85 to 1.33. YOU DO NOT DO THAT! THAT IS A BIG NO-NO! The video gets a 0.5/5. The audio is all right for 2 Channel. 3/5.

Movie - 2.5/5
Video - 0.5/5
Audio - 3.0/5

The Howling V: The Rebirth:

A group of people are gathered in a castle in Hungary. What seems like an innocent getaway turns into murder as someone or something is killing them off.

I thought it was good supernatural murder mystery, 4/5. Video is slightly better, but that's nothing, but at least it's OAR; 1.5/5. Audio again is a 3/5.

Movie - 4.0/5
Video - 1.5/5
Audio - 3.0/5

The Howling VI: The Freaks:

A drifter by the name of Ian comes to a small town that's close to becoming a ghost town until he arrives and helps bring back the local church. Then, the traveling carnival comes to town where Ian comes face to face with the dangerous carnival owner.

Probably my least favorite out of the set, 2/5. The video is in OAR, 1.5/5. Audio, 3/5.

Movie - 2.0/5
Video - 1.5/5
Audio - 3.0/5

Movie - 2.5+4+2= 8.5/3 = 2.84 which will be rounded to 3/5.
Video - .5 + 1.5 + 1.5 = 3.5/3 = 1.167 which will be rounded to 1.5/5.
Audio - 3/5

The final overall is 3+1.5+3 = 7.5/4 = 1.875 which will be rounded to 2/5. I spent $11 on this, if you want to get this, don't pay more than that.
