Sybil Danning is an Austrian actress who made her mark on cinematic history throughout the 1980s as a Femme Fatale. Aside from exploitation films like Chained Heat and Reform School Girls, Danning is best remembered for her role as Stirba, werewolf/witch queen villainess from the 1985 film, The Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf. As a pastiche of her earlier work, Danning has also appeared as Gretchen Krupp in the false 2007 trailer of Werewolf Women of the SS, which appeared on the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double-bill feature Grindhouse.
Notes & Trivia Edit
The closing credits for the Howling II feature clips from the movie. One scene in particular, in which Stirba is seen tearing off her bodice exposing her breasts, is repeated throughout the credits. The scene is intermittently framed by reaction shots from various characters, making it a humorous sequence to end the film with.
