Howling 3: The Marsupials

Howling 3: The Marsupials (Philippe Mora, 1987) Barry Otto, Imogen Annesley (Jerboa), Dasha Blahova, Max Fairchild, Ralph Cotterill, Leigh Biolos, Frank Thring, Burnum Burnum

Impossible to pigeon-hole - because it does not really belong in the Howling (werewolf) series - this investigates environmental and Aboriginal issues: a most unusual film. Frank Thring is the director of a film: Shape Shifters Part 8. Jerboa goes to the movies to see a film called It Came from Uranus.

[Philippe Mora] returned to Australia to make fun of the genre with an engagingly preposterous plot about a tribe of marsupial werewolves who meet up with a traditional European werewolf. ... This good-natured spoof, very much tongue-in-cheek, is a good antidote to more serious, and less successful, horror films. David Stratton: 303, 304.
