Werewolf Film Howl Gets UK Date and Image Gallery
Good werewolf films are few and far between, and we’re hoping that Paul Hyett’s Howl is one of those good ones. Today we’ve learned that Metrodome International will release the movie in UK theaters on October 16th, with a home video release following on October 26th.
