The Howling

Karen, a TV anchor, is 'wired' in order to catch a killer/stalker who is enamored with her. She meets him in a porno booth, where he begins a transformation into a werewolf. The cops arrive in time and shoot him, but not with silver bullets. He will come back 3 days later.

Traumatized and amnesiac about the event, Karen goes to "The Colony" to recuperate.

More trivia for The Howling

Question: This question applies to both this movie and Howling 4. Was there some kind of hypnosis involved that made the husbands of the protagonist want to stay in the communities after they were bitten by a werewolf?

Answer: Whether it be dog or wolf, the primal instincts take over. Every creature, in nature, has an urge to seek out their own kind. When the husbands were bitten, they are consumed with the desire to hunt, kill and mate.
