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

Meanwhile, Stefan finally gets into the castle to confront Stirba. He gets some more voiceover dialogue as he… I think the idea is that he knows some good spells that enable Jenny and Ben to escape, but the movie never makes it clear. The only thing I can tell right now about the guy is that he has to be at least as old as Stirba if they’re siblings, for all the nothing that’s worth.

He finally gets to Stirba, and she’s evidently getting as impatient as the rest of us.

Stirba: Finally, we meet again.
Stefan: For the last time.

Who wrote this? A comic book addicted ten-year-old on a sugar rush?

They face off, with Stirba remarking that Stefan never could resist her. Ah, so they’re from Mississippi, then! She reaches out, and a light show starts up, with her whispering in voiceover for Stefan to come to her.

Uh, what the hell is going on?

Stefan begins to glow, and gets a voiceover of his own, intoning, “Stirba must be destroyed, and I will do it!” over and over again. Yes, the battle between good and evil here basically involves warring voiceover tracks.

Great, now he’s gonna say he’s on a mission from God.

Stirba walks forward, still doing her whispery voiceover routine, and she suddenly appears in her old woman guise. I don’t know why. Maybe she’s trying to seduce Stefan, and figures he’d go for a woman closer to his age.

And maybe the director saw the 1983 Hercules movie and was inspired.
