You know, it's really a shame that most people have never heard of this movie. Because viewing it might just alter your perceptions about bad films. You will realize, after this, how often the phrase "this is the worst movie ever made" is inappropriately used; "Rottweiler" IS the worst movie ever made! I guess there have been, and there will be, movies AS bad as this one, but it's highly doubtful whether there has ever been a movie WORSE than this one. It's the "Plan 9 From Outer Space" of killer-dog films. It looks as if it was shot with a bad video camera, and the acting is beyond bad. How can anyone give it anything higher than a "0"?
