Product Description

Amazon.ca

This lean, efficient horror flick stands well above most bloated blockbusters. Dog Soldiers follows a military squad on a training mission in the Scottish wilds, where they run into a pack of werewolves. There's nothing fancy about the plot--the soldiers hole up in a farmhouse and desperately try to fend off the werewolves until dawn--but the script is full of smart dialogue and clever ideas, the direction is dynamic, and the performances (from Kevin McKidd, Sean Pertwee, Emma Cleasby, and Liam Cunningham, among a solid cast of relative unknowns) are strong and committed throughout. Dog Soldiers pays homage to Night of the Living Dead, Aliens, and The Evil Dead, among other films, but the references are woven into the fabric of the movie. An unpretentious, tension-inducing flick like this is a pleasant reminder that even crude special effects can be more evocative than expensive computer flashiness. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
This is one helluva good little movie.A group of British soldiers in the Scottish Highlands fight off a pack of wolfmen while hold up in an old cottage.Great suspense and terrific action abound in this low budget jewel while the soldiers try to survive until daylight.Its really good to see a film work with downhome special effects to make a good movie as opposed to those computer generated Hollywood slick looking movies.The wolves are believable as hell and the gore is really....well.... very gory.Intestines are ripped out and meat is eaten when the pack makes a kill and they make quite a few.
This is the first werewolf movie Ive seen that made the wolves look real and act scary.Face it , the werewolves reputation suffered at the hands of David Naughton and Jason Bateman so its really hard to make a movie where werewolves really come across scary .In this movie they do.
Just about everything is perfect in this little movie--a secluded cottage and the misty Scottish weather and the gloom of the woods and the impending nightfall all add up to a great setting for this man vs werewolf fight for survival.
If you like horror then see this movie ,it will put those big budget slick Hollywood pieces of crap you usually watch to shame.

Format: DVD
I didn't know what to expect from this film. I'm usually on top of knowing good horror films when they come out but this one fell through the cracks somehow. I found out about it from Canadian horror magazine "Rue Morgue" where it won the year end readers poll for best death scene. Me being a gorehound went and rented it the same day.
I had a smile on my face the entire movie. THIS is what a werewolf movie should be! Fast-paced, violent, tense, and claustorphic, this movie also packs a good punch for gorehounds like me. A couple really good gooey moments! What I also really liked about the movie, was after reading it was a "horror-comedy", I expected outright goofeyness. But not the case. A number of really good laughs are had by some clever lines, old-war stories, and some unfortunate injuries. But it all works.
Definately in my top three werewolf movies along with Ginger Snaps and An American Werewolf in London.

I originally rented this movie because I had a free rental coupon. My comment to the guy working in the video store as I left was I know I'm going to regret this, but its free.
After watching the movie I went nuts trying to find a copy that I could own. I had never heard of the movie before seeing it, and instantly loved it.
If you can get at chance to watch this movie, do it.

Format: DVD
A couple are out enjoying the romantic seclusion of a tent in the Scottish Highlands when a werewolf interrupts their love making. Meanwhile, in another part of those woods Private Cooper (Kevin McKidd) is proving to Captain Ryan (Liam Cunningham) that he does not have what it takes to be part of Ryan's elite special operations force. The bone of contention is being ordered to shoot a dog just because Ryan says so. Ryan accuses Cooper of having a conscience, as if this is a bad thing in a military man. But Cooper washes out and ends up back in the area some time later with the other members of his squad, under the command of Sgt. Wells (Sean Pertwee). Around the campfire they hear about the local stories about people disappearing in the woods and never being found, which engenders a round of "ooohs" and "aahs." Then they find Ryan's squad ripped to itsey bitsey pieces and the Captain just about over the edge and the hunt is on. As this 2002's tagline tells us: "Six soldiers. Full moon. No chance."

Well, that is not exactly true. Once the squad finds Ryan they are up to seven and then there is Megan (Emma Cleasby), a scientist whose function is more as the mistress of exposition than as a damsel in distress. In other words, she is the one who knows that there is a pack of lycanthropes (werewolves to ordinary folk) out there hunting the soldiers and has a good explanation for why they are holed up in a house without any silver in it. Apparently the full moon matters even when the sun is up, and there are very few films of this type where it is literally true that nobody has a chance of getting out alive.

Format: DVD
The premise: a small group of British soldiers are sent into the highlands of Scotland on a wargames reconnaissance mission. Instead, they end up getting stalked by a pack of werewolves.
This multi-faceted movie has so many things going for it, one can only wonder why it was never given a North American theatrical release. In spite of the title, it's no dog.
The cinematography is several notches above the typical horror film style. The acting.... well.... they're British so that goes without saying. The pacing is brisk and, wonder of wonders, the story actually makes sense and works.
And the special effects and werewolf makeup are surprisingly good.
Even though the audience knows from the get go that this is a monster flick, the director knows that what works best is what's not seen. So instead we only get flashing glimpses of the creatures and lots of suspense, progressively revealing more and more of the hairy hoard.
I half expected to find this film a turkey, but was pleasantly surprised.
Definitely not to be missed if you're a fan of creature features.
