Don't get me wrong, I think the ending is sad too - on paper. But the execution of it lessens the impact for me. The problem for me is that the movie tries to tug at the heart strings, make a sly remark about popular media, and show off some less than convincing special effects all at once.

Unfortunately, I think The Howling is at its strongest when it's simply Dee Wallace and a serial killer in a sleazy video shop.
