Howling V: The Rebirth (1989)

Director: Neal Sundstrom
Starring: Phil Davis, Victoria Catlin, Elizabeth Shé

Foreign guests are invited to a Hungarian castle that had been sealed for 500 years under mysterious circumstances.

While this film has better production values than what I've seen of the series thus far, it really didn't feel that much like a werewolf story. It's a "Ten Little Indians" scenario with the werewolf element duct-taped on. This wouldn't have been a bad thing, but I never connected to any of the characters, who tended to range from bland to unlikeable (though ditzy Marylou was kinda funny for being so incredibly dumb). As a result, I never felt particularly invested in the story and so I can't give it much of an endorsement. Maybe it'll do something for you and maybe it won't.
