Though not actually a film addressing the evil lure of cream-filled chocolate cakes, this amusingly cheesy made-for-TV opus from director Curtis Harrington pits a relatively normal suburban family against a slavering, demonically-possessed German shepherd whose hunger for human souls far exceeds that of the normal household pet. Although not above resorting to the usual throat-maulings, the satanic psycho-pup's preferred method of attack is to supernaturally cause the deaths of various friends and neighbors, in a style reminiscent of The Omen. Though the gory potential of this scenario is obviously dulled by the TV-movie format, there are enough implied shocks and chills to keep up the pace -- particularly a grueling scene in which Dad finds himself unable to resist the urge to plunge his hand into a spinning lawnmower blade, while the possessed pooch looks on with tongue-wagging glee. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

For the Dogs

11/02/2008When I was ten, I was a huge fan of Escape to Witch Mountain. So when Iwas browsing in Best Buy and saw Devil Dog, with the same stars, I was pleased, especially since it was the day before Halloween.
Sad, but true, it was one of the worst movies I've seen. It wasn't even bad enough to laugh at (although with a couple of beers, I might have been able to do just that!)
The plot centers around a ten year old girl, (played by a 14 year old actress!) who's dog is killed by a Cult. She is then given a new puppy by the same cult that is actually the love child of pure evil and a sweet tempered German Shepherd. This dog, named Lucky, starts terrorizing the family and turning the children into his followers. Now, if the cult had bred some kind of evil cocker spaniel. . .
