Marsha Quist is the secondary antagonist of 1981's classic werewolf film The Howling.

She was portrayed by the late Elisabeth Brooks.


The Howling

Marsha is the sister of Eddie and T.C. Quist, and she is one of the werewolves residing in a secluded nature resort known as "The Colony". She is a confessed naturist, but she is also a nymphomaniac, often flaunting her sexuality by wearing provocative leather outfits. Once Karen White and her husband, Bill Neill, arrived at The Colony (so Karen could recover from her confrontation with Eddie), Marsha set her wicked sights on Bill, making several flirtatious advances towards him. She even threw herself on Bill and kissed him, only for Bill to push her away. Later in the film, however, Marsha attacks Bill in her werewolf form late at night, passing "the gift" of lycanthropy onto him.

The next night, Marsha and Bill engaged in a sexual encounter, with the full moon hovering over them. During the encounter, both Marsha and Bill transformed into werewolves, with the villainess sinking her claws in to Bill. They both finish with their transformations by orgasming together and howling together. After Karen learns what happened, Marsha stated to Karen during their confrontation that Bill is "one of us, now." In the film's climax, Marsha and the rest of The Colony's residents are locked in a barn by Karen and Chris, and the protagonists set the barn on fire. However, at the very end of the film, Marsha is revealed to have escaped the barn and survived, as she is shown at a bar ordering a hamburger; rare of course.

Revenge of the Werewolf Queen

Marsha Later returns in The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen comic, this time as the main antagonist. In it, she journeys to the city of Los Angeles to find an ancient artifact deemed the "Hand of Akkara" which (according to her) will allow her to bring about a new age where Werewolves will rule the Earth once again.
