Could Have Been a Good Movie
27 December 2005 | by (Sleesburg, VA.) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie years ago back in 1987 and I remember this movie had an original feel to it and had some memorable atmosphere to the movie but seeing it again just recently has shifted my view on this movie. This movie stars Alice Cooper as a rock star (of course) going back to his families old house to film a music video. He brings his crew (who all seem mentally challenged) and expects to have a good time. What they don't realize is there is a pack of wild dogs slaughtering people along the country side and these dogs are led by the Monster Dog. The main problems with this movie is extremely bad acting, bad music, Alice Coopers voice is dubbed over, and very bad special effects (except a hilarious scene when a bald guy gets the top of his head blown to pieces). But you can over look this because the movie saves itself with some decent atmosphere. I can't place it but this flick can be creepy at times. Anyway, if you know before watching this movie that is it going to be bad than you will probably enjoy this.
