The Howling: New Moon Rising (1995) (part 4 of 11)
Cut to Ted in his dim bedroom, making more vague, sinister comments into his tape recorder. He says the town is “perfect”, because the people can be “easily manipulated”. He says, “Why do I care if I hurt them?” I don’t know, but I sure don’t care. Meanwhile, the Peach Pit Guitar Lick wails in the distance.
Cut to the next day, and hear Harriet performing yet another pathetic country song. In the kitchen, a woman with a mullet [!] is standing over the deep fryers. Of course, she’s got no hairnet on or anything like that. Femullet Girl is oblivious to Ted and Brock pilfering food out of a pot. And both of them reach right in and scoop stuff out of the pot with their bare hands [!]. Ew!
Next, Ted and Bob are sitting on a porch with acoustic guitars. All the while, Harriet’s “story song” continues in the background, and she describes coming home one day to find Pappy “giving singing lessons to this little blonde!” Ted points off in the distance, Bob looks over, and then Ted smacks him on the back of the head. Wow, the crafty “made you look” trick. Well played, Ted.
