Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1986) (part 7 of 9)

During this chase, Vasile trips and loses his holy wax earplugs, which results in him grabbing his head in agony. I guess Stirba’s chanting has a rather unpleasant sonic effect. No, I don’t know why.

Vasile tells Ben to go off and leave him, and a chase ensues between Ben and the two werewolves through the forest. But before anything interesting can happen, we go back to Jenny, who’s finally twigged to the fact that the guy she’s hanging with might not be trustworthy.

Tondo starts to give off some seriously creepy vibes, and then it’s back to the castle, where the chanting is still going on, and Vasile is still running around in agony. And then it’s back to Tondo, who’s turned into Aggressively Creepy Guy, and then we suddenly get a shot of Stirba chanting outside, while her cape glows red.

“Children of the night, take a look at these puppies!”

Her hands start emitting arcs of red/orange energy, while she slowly howls. I think the idea is that she’s teleported over to Vasile, but that’s a shot in the dark on my part if there ever was one.

I get the magical powers thing, but why the hell does her hair look like she just woke up?

Vasile’s nose begins to bleed (or rather, a fake Vasile head begins to bleed, at any rate) and the howling reaches a crescendo where… Vasile’s eyes explode. Seriously. But it’s a pretty crappy effect, to be honest. Generally, heads don’t jiggle like Jell-O.

Now how the hell is this supposed to sell hot sauce?
