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

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.

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.

There are great classics related to werewolves, The Howling, Wolfen, and the superior American Werewolf in London. After watching "Dog Soldiers" it can easily be part of this pack. I fine this movie to be very exciting and pleasant B movie. This was recommended to me by Caesar M. Warrington, who is also a great reviewer, during the month of Halloween. Werewolves fascinate me more then Vampires so I couldn't wait till next Halloween to watch this. You will not a fine a major city, silly people or unneeded love story involved in this film. Just a couple of cool soldiers who are willing to do anything to survive. In here we have a group of six British Soldiers spend time on the Scottish highlands to do a special training but one Soldier is whining about missing a soccer game between England versus Germany, a little like the tension you get when America versus Canada or something! Apparently Story goes that where the soldiers are standing, they hear about gruesome "true" tales of people go missing but savage and gory murder scenes are simultaneously found as potential evidence. A leader, Captain Ryan happens to be the sole survivor of another team that becomes a 'dog's breakfast'! Is he hiding a secret that the remaining team should know about? Who knows?

That is when Luna-loving furry doggies with rabies come into view, and they look like muscular, mutant gerbils in mink coats, with Freddy Claws. The Team have to drop their blank bullets for real ones as a locally rural girl, Megan, comes in as GI Jane to save them by escaping out of the woods by a Jeep, taking the remaining Soldiers with her, and sheltered into a remote Country Farm House.

I expected DOG SOLDIERS to be pitifull (its a low budget werewolf movie with a relativley unknown cast). However the movie intrested me and i rented, NOW I AM GOING TO BUY IT. Dog Soldiers is a tribute to movies like EVIL DEAD, PREDATOR and especialy ALIENS, Yes, Dog Soldiers is good enough to take on each and every one of those films, it would have a tough time with aliens though. A character named SPOON provides the movie with comic relief, SPOON is also the bravest of the soldiers, The main character is Cooper (Kevin McKidd from Trainspotting) Cooper is taking part in a regular military exercise with with the sergent (Sean Pertwee), Spoon, Joe, Terry and Bruce Campbell (the name of a character from evil dead).
Cooper is on this mission because he failed the training to become a member of special ops. He deserved to make the team but Captain Ryan thought otherwise. As far as the storey goes Coopers squad find Ryan out in the mittle of no where, his whole team has been slaughtered by something, all to soon the troops soon find out what happened and try to escape, after losing a man and a few injurys they run into a local woman, Megan, she gives them shelter but guess who wants seconds? The soldiers are forced to hide out in a small house in the forest, with howling things doing everything possible to get in. The script is good, the acting is strong and everything else is good as well, even the none computerized werewolves look half decent. Dog Soldiers gets better as it goes on and the final scenes are a reward for watching, especialy when SPOON takes on a Werewolf with his fists and nothing else, i wont say much more because i dont want to spoil the movie. Another great scene is when Joe (a huge soccer fan).
