PLOT: The film opens with archival footage labeled as "Cape York, Australia, 1905." A group of Aborigines are posing with a dead werewolf that is tied to a tree. The film then jumps to modern day. The U.S. government intercepts a KGB report of a werewolf killing three villagers in a small Siberian village and that a special army has been dispatched to take care of the beast. Some think that the Soviets are using the word "werewolf" as a code name. Others think that it is the real thing. Next, the film introduces us to Professor Harry Beckmeyer (Barry Otto), an anthropologist. He shows his class the archival footage from the beginning of the film. The footage was made by his grandfather on an anthropological expedition of the Australian outback. He never returned but this was the footage that was found. The Aborigines are shown dancing around the werewolf tied to a tree. Then they throw spears at it and kill it. Harry says that the werewolf is a woman wearing an unbelievably lifelike wolf-mask, but he secretly believes that it is a real werewolf. The U.S. government later summons Harry and informs him about the KGB reports. He admits that he thinks that werewolves really exist and that they live in places like Russia and Australia. Harry goes back to Sydney, Australia and meets up with his colleague Professor Sharp (Ralph Cotterill). He tells Sharp about his plans to get evidence of the existence of werewolves. The film next takes us to a small outback village outside of Sydney named Flow (that's Wolf spelled backwards.) A beautiful young werewolf woman there named Jerboa (Imogen Annesley) is being mistreated by her stepfather (and den leader) Thylo (Max Fairchild). She hits him and runs off. She charters a bus to Sydney. A priest on board asks her why she is running away.Read more ›

Howling III is one wacked out movie. Director Philip Mora must have had his tongue firmly stuck in his cheek when he wrote and directed this film. It's about Marsupial werewolfs for goodness sake! It you take it for what it is, Howling III is entertaining for the first half. It's so odd that it keeps you interested. The last half tends to drag, and seems to overstay its welcome. This DVD is beautifully remastered, in widescreen, and comes with plenty of extras. I can't believe this movie was treated so well on its DVD release when it's not even liked that well by horror movie fans? It just strikes me as strange. Anyway, I have to say I liked the Director's communtary by Philip Mora. He seems to take this movie so seriously, saying that he "wanted to make a Howling movie he could call his own since Howling II (which he also directed) was the product of the editors and producers". I can't say that Howling III is much better than Howling II. Both are pretty lame in my book. Anyway, I like these wacked out horror movies every once-in-awhile. Make sure to also pick up the MGM's new special edition of The Howling and the Artisan double feature Howling V/Howling VI DVD to help complete your oddball werewolf collection. I wonder if Howling II and Howling IV will be released on DVD soon. I'd like to complete my collection, and lets pray that Howling (7): New Moon Rising never gets released.

This sequel is in no way connected to the first two, so feel free to see this even if you haven't yet seen the original.

Given how this movie begins, we're led to believe that Professor of Anthropology Harry Beckmeyer somehow stumbled across some 80-year old footage of Australian aborigines killing some man-wolf hybrid thing. Considering this to be concrete evidence of the existence of werewolves, Harry travels to Australia so that he can prove the existence of werewolves to the scientific community.

Meanwhile Australian native Jerboa (Imogen Annesley) is recruited by a young filmmaker (Donny) to act in a werewolf movie called "Shape Shifters." They become intimate and Donny learns a bit more than he expected about werewolves--including that, evidently, they have kangaroo pouches just above their hoo-has.

The first half of the movie follows these three characters in an over-the-top marathon of fun horror-spoofed nonsense. The second half feels like a really weird family movie complete with a healthy relationships between Jerboa and Donny, Harry settling down with a balerina werewolf, and they all have fast-growing werechildren. Meanwhile, the Australian military has become hell-bent on capturing, studying and maybe eradicating the recently discovered werewolves. It's like The Little Marsupial Werewolf House on the Prairie with some pesky military occupants.

The cheesy transformation scenes are comically littered with rubber prosthetics, bubbling skin and retractable claws. There's a laughably gross monster birth scene dream sequence. Oh, and there are werewolf nuns and a werewolf ballerina with poor transformation timing! Of course, the actual action is infrequent and awful, but I don't mind at all.

Fun, weird, light-hearted and spoofy.

This movie has everything! Government conspiracy! Aboriginal people spouting mumbo-jumbo! Shape-shifting ballet! Extinct species / human hybrids w/ pouches! And so much more! HOWLING 3: THE MARSUPIALS should have been a ridiculous classic. Unfortunately, it has so many long stretches of dullness that it seems to be days long! If only about 40 minutes had been lopped off, it could have been a hilarious masterwork! Ugh...
