Storyline

On the quiet campus of the remotely-located SouthWestern University, something strange is happening. All of the dogs in the area, once loyal, gentle pets, are now banding together in wild packs and hunting down their former masters. Could the strange transformation have anything to do with the secret government experiements being conducted in the school's physics laboratory? More importantly, can the dogs be stopped before it's too late? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

These dogs are going to kill you...
9 January 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"Dogs" a.k.a "Slaughter" tries to be another scientific horror flick,but fails miserably.There is simply not enough suspense,no excitement,instead we have here a lot of boring dialogues and useless scenes.Personally I like the sequence when black doberman attacks woman under the shower.This isn't completely bad movie,but it could have been better.All in all,if you want to see good,scary picture about killer dog(s) rent "Cujo".I will give this forgotten flick 5 out of 10.
