Trivia

The movie was inspired by "The Devil's Platform" from the 1974 television series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." However, producers could not get permission to continue the storyline and opted for a new one. Also, Tom Skerritt was in talks with Ridley Scott to do "Alien" and was unavailable for the movie, so producers offered the role to Richard Crenna. See more »

Goofs

Snoopy in need of an exorcist!
20 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

This film is a hoot, or a bark. I don't know. Richard Crenna plays an average suburban dad who buys a cute puppy for his family. Turns out the puppy is possessed by Satan! The fun really begins when the pup grows to be the Devil Dog, a beautiful German Shepard. Fellow imdb reviewer gave this a low rating. How could you dislike a movie where the family dog makes the mom become the town slut, the kids become the school bully, and make the entire family (except dad) worship Satan in the attic. The shots of doggie staring at Richard Crenna, backed by sappy 70's electronic "scary" music help makes this film such a charmer. Jimmy Carter era thrills here!
