HOWLING III: THE MARSUPIALS (1987)
Starring: Deby Wightman, Christopher Pate, Jerome Patillo, William Yang
Director: Phillipe Mora

One of the greatest Australian films ever made, and the first - and most likely the last - marsupial werewolf movie in cinema history. Researchers in Australia are investigating the existence of were-Tasmanian tigers. One of these, a marsupial werewolf girl, runs away from her home (a werewolf commune in the bush) and travels to Sydney where she’s immediately cast in a cheesy horror movie. She has sex with the assistant director, gets pregnant, turns into a werewolf, goes to hospital and is abducted and taken back to the commune by a trio of lady werewolves disguised as nuns. And then things start to get weird (trust us).

With rubbery transformation scenes, over-the-top performances, pages of camp dialogue, a synthesizer/didgeridoo score and special guest appearances by Frank Thring, “Mr Movies” Bill Collins and photographer William Yang (as “Siberian Peasant”), this is one Aussie movie guaranteed to fill your heart with patriotic fervour - even as you're coughing up a lung with laughter.
