Eh? Was PeTA envolved with the making of "Devil's Owl"....?
....I dunno, but they might as well as been. "Devil's Owl" does have an interesting concept and some campy un-intentionally funny scenes, but some of the animal-rights preachyness bogged this film down.
It started out with some animal cruelty scenes (PeTA documentary stock footage?) and then it says "Dedicated to Animal Rights Activists everywhere. After those pointless scenes, a woman gives birth to an anthropomorphic owl. Mom loves Owl, but Dad gets grossed out by his presence. One day, when Owl is more mature, he witnesses daddy slaughtering some wild game and Owl gets upset. So he gets all of his furry and feathery friends out there to wreek revenge on what humanity did to them.
That sound strange to you? Wait to see the film! You'll wonder what the movie staff were thinking when working on "Devil's Owl". Available in Mandarin and (ironically) English version (dubbed in Singapore).
Excuse me now, but I think I am going to have some hot dogs and sushi right now. Mmmmmmmmm, yummy meat!
