The 50 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time

19. Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985)

Director: Philippe Mora
Stars: Christopher Lee, Sybil Danning, Annie McEnroe, Reb Brown, Marsha A. Hunt

In the pantheon of werewolf movies, 1981's The Howling is one of the best, a satisfyingly gruesome and cleverly funny romp helmed by Gremlins director Joe Dante. Featuring everything from legitimate jump scares to bizarre lycanthrope sex, it's a beloved horror classic, and proof that campiness doesn't always have to be second-rate.

It's basically the polar opposite of the Dante-free sequel, Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf, also known as Howling II: Stirba - Werewolf Bitch. Good luck deciding which title is more hilariously bad. Not that the movie itself would help the decision-making process with any narrative subtext.

At best, Your Sister is a Werewolf feels like a so-bad-it's-good miscue; mostly, though, it's softcore S&M porn with too much body hair and genre icon Christopher Lee degrading himself with a paycheck role that couldn't have even paid all that much. Might we suggest an additional alternate title: Howling II: Fuck Outta Here.
