Product Details


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

4.0 out of 5 stars "Dog Soldiers" will grab you by the throat July 18 2004
By mark
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Evil Dead of werewolf movies March 3 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Soldiers Oct. 27 2003
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better werewolf movies of the genre Nov. 22 2002
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoooooooowling good time Nov. 2 2002
Format:DVD
***Possible spoilers*** This is by far THE best werewolf movie I've ever seen, and I've seen them all (put it down to a lifelong fascination with lycanthropy). Most werewolf movies have left me frustrated and disappointed (the other two personally likeable ones being "An American Werewolf In London" and "An American Werewolf in Paris"), and wanting better. So, it was with more than a little skepticism that I watched this movie for the first time when it premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel. By the looks of it, they didn't cut much out of it (far less "editing" than the networks would have done to it, anyway). And I was very nicely surprised by what I saw: superb acting ("Spoon" rules!!!), a well-put-together story, and over-the-top special effects make-up. The werewolves in it actually LOOK like werewolves -- not werebears like the one in "An American Werewolf In London". I've seen numerous critiques on this movie where the people complain that it's "too gory" or "overly gruesome", etc. Well, guess what, gang -- it's a WEREWOLF movie; it's supposed to be gruesome. In fact, that's been the major problem with most of the werewolf movies out there: they're not gruesome enough, and it renders the movie unrealistic, given the "nature of the beast". If you want to watch a canine movie with no gore or violence, go rent "Benji". I HIGHLY recommend this movie to all horror movie buffs, especially lycanthrope lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot more than I expected Oct. 20 2003
Format:DVD
Being a B movie horror lover I was expecting nothing more. We have to admit that all recent Werewolf movies are B movies or romantic/comedy movies like "American werewolf in Paris". So I sat down expecting a lot of gore and a story line that a chimp could easily follow. I was in for a surprise. In fact it is by far the best werewolf movie I have ever seen. This high octane action horror movie is a must see!
This movie was intended to be the first of a trilogy so there's hope for a sequel.
