Did You Know?

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

When Lucky is chasing Betty through the house, upstairs a door closes behind the two of them. When the door closes you can see a crew member through the crack of the door shutting it behind them as they enter. See more »

Above average TV thriller
8 April 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie on TV back on Halloween night, 1978, after finishing Trick-or-Treating. A long time ago. "Devil Dog" has an excellent cast, and a fun, yet spooky tale of a normal middle-class family falling under demonic possession. The best part is when the father hears his children chanting bizarre hymns in the attic at 3am. He goes to investigate, and is shocked at what he finds.
