Howling VI: The Freaks (1991)

Director: Hope Perello

Stars: Brendan Hughes, Michele Matheson, Sean Sullivan, Antonio Fargas, Deep Roy

Drifter Ian Richards comes into a small town and moves in with the local preacher and his pretty daughter, and at the same time, a carnival and freak show arrive in town. The owner of the freak show just happens to be a vampire who once put a curse on Richards family, turning him into a werewolf whenever the moon is full. When he learns of this, the carnival ringmaster determines to force Richards to join his freak show.

This is one of the worst movies in the series, but I really like this one for some reason. It just has this odd appeal to it. IN this one a blue vampire owns and runs a freak side show that contains the real thing. I mean, he does turn into a blue vampire. This town is almost completely dead, and there is a show rolling into town. I wondered why in movies that when a circus or something like that comes to mainly small towns? I know why it happened in this movie. He wanted to eat the people, or drink them.

The special effects and make-up work in this movie is terrible. This is the first and only time that I have seen a blue vampire in a movie. Even the face of him look bad and fish like. The look of the werewolf was really bad. It looked like he had a disease or something. He had bald spots on him.

The only really cool part of the movie was Antonio Fargas. He needed the work. This was a movie about vampires and werewolves. This is still a good bad movie. If you can find a copy, you may want to give it a chance. Enjoy.
