FROM THE MIND OF GARY BRANDNER TO THE RELEASE OF THE HOWLING: REBORN... THE TRUE BEHIND THE SCENES STORY OF THE HOWLING SERIES!
Two words that you can say in almost any country in the world and people will know exactly what you are talking about...
The definitive werewolf movie from 1981, directed by Joe Dante with effects from Rob Bottin, about a plucky young news anchor who retreats to a woodland therapy centre after an encounter with a vicious serial killer, only to discover that the other guests at the centre are all werewolves.
But before The Howling was a showcase of scary special effects, it was a series of best selling paperbacks by Gary Brandner. The Howling was first published in 1977. It was wildly successful, enjoying four printings in three years in the United Kingdom. The novel's success spawned two further literary adventures, in 1979 and again in 1985, both penned by Gary Brandner.
Beyond the Howling is a look behind the scenes at the conception of the original book, its outstanding success as a paperback best seller, the publisher's demands for a sequel, the film adaptation by John Sayles and Joe Dante and the film franchise that together they spawned.
The book includes first hand accounts from the many men and women who made the novels and the film series happen! Check the Author's Blog for updates on interviews conducted!
