Schlocktober update, and The Howling 3: The Marsupials

So, sometimes life gets in the way of the best intentions. Schloctober got sidelined to deal with home stuff, NaNoWriMo prep, and a host of other little tasks. Stay tuned for some short stories and anthologies. Got a lot to announce, as it's ready for release.

I finally got back to the awesomeness of bad movies last night, with The Howling 3: The Marsupials. It was a great pick to return to my wannabe tradition; I laughed greatly. And I can't wait to watch the rest of the Howling films in the set I snagged. They're all later ones, and I hope they live up to The Marsupials' kind of schlock.

The acting is mostly silly, but it's of the, 'I got my college roommate and her brother to come act for us over the weekend' rather than the kind of camp you don't have to feel bad laughing at and with. But one of the subplots makes up for a whole lot of meandering plot and just plain nonsense.

First, the leading lady had a pouch. Like a kangaroo. They tie it in with an extinct wolf the Vatican asked to be eradicated as part of a conspiratorial cover-up. Apparently making her a were-roo would have been just too silly.

And the second part of her having a pouch is she has a pouch baby. And when it first crawls out of her pouch, it looks like a penis. Not the way carrots or rockets look phallic, but the way that if your mother walked in on you watching this movie, she would ask why that penis has a face. Promos for the movie about a rampaging penis didn't have as realistic a penis as this. And the best part? She strokes it. While it's laying on her pelvis. Then it crawls back into her very sideways-vaginal pouch.

It's gloriously bizarre.
