  1. Mar J's rating of the film Howl

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Howl

    Howl doesn't go properly bonkers with its premise. It takes too long to get going, and it also has only thinly written archetypical characters, with sparse suspense. Hyett had an emotionally striking debut with The Seasoning House, which started out grandly before succumbing into cliches. Howl has the cliches the whole way through and proves the classic notion that a director isn't better than their script.
