Product Description


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 text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If actual werewolves were ever to be found, I think we all know exactly what would immediately happen -- the government would want to capture them for use in war.

But they'd have to actually be able to fight the werewolves first. And "Dog Soldiers" certainly suggests that that wouldn't be an easy solution, as it pits soldiers against lycanthropes in the woods -- and despite the slightly cheesy werewolf suits-on-stilts, the movie is a harrowing, claustrophobic experience filled with blood and shadowy violence. In other words, it's the kind of werewolf movie that we desperately need more of.

As the plot begins, two relevant stories are shown in flashback. In one, a couple camping in the Scottish Highlands are killed by an unseen monster. In another, Private Cooper (Kevin McKidd) is being considered for a special forces unit, overseen by Captain Ryan (Liam Cunningham). But Cooper gives up the chance when Ryan demands he murder a dog.

Fast forward four weeks: Cooper's squad is on a training exercise in the Highlands, where they are supposed to engage a Special Air Service unit. At first, it seems like just a bunch of guys hanging out in the woods, playing pranks and ribbing each other as guys do. Then they find the SAS unit... who have been torn to pieces ("Natural causes, my arse!"), except for the badly wounded Ryan. Cooper recognizes that they were on some kind of covert operation, but Ryan just babbles, "There was only supposed to be one!"

They encounter a zoologist named Megan (Emma Cleasby) who takes them to a little house in the woods, where they try to treat their wounded and take shelter from the mysterious attackers.

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.

Okay, so this is the 4th North American edition of this movie to home video; the first was on DVD with a good transfer and some nice special features as well as a GREAT cover, the second was a bare bones DVD with none of the previous extras carried over, with a good transfer and a so-so cover, then came the first Blu-ray (from the same company that put out the last DVD) with no extras, a good transfer and the same so-so cover art as the last DVD, then we have this new Shout Factory version.

First off, due to someone not bothering to do the proper research when it comes to who actually had the rights to this title, it was postponed a year and now it's here.

So let's start with the transfer and we can start by firing the idiot who thought that this needed to have a severe brightness boost, I mean holy crapazoid, we're in the Scottish highlands and the sky looks, first of all bright white and like California at noon, and DO NOT get me started on the boiling grain noise that permeates the entire frame.

Now I have all of the for mentioned versions of this title, and did a comparison between the old and new Blu-ray (BD) and have to say that without a doubt, the original BD is the way to go as it has a normal grain sheen, good colour and proper brightness levels.

Now one must take into consideration that this film was shot on 16MM film (where as most films are shot on 35MM film stock) so the film is always going to have grain issues, but not to the point that it should boil constantly on screen, which it does on the Shout Factory BD but not on the original BD.

Next up is the new documentary from Shout Factory (SF) which at an hour+ you'd think would trump the original 30ish minute making of on the original DVD..., and you'd be thinking wrong...!!!
