Unexpected but ruefully funny
19 March 2004 | by (Louisville, Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I bought this film because I am a fan of Jeremy Sisto & his work. Renamed "The Dog Killer" for release in Europe, they would have been better off to keep the original title, "Dead Dog," which at least preserves the irony of the conclusion. This is a movie that began as one thing & ended as another. Seeming tragic, dark & obsessive at the start, the plot kept taking slight detours until at the end, I was laughing in rueful satisfaction. I enjoyed the movie very much & found it refreshingly different from what it was advertised to be. This is not a heavy drama or horror film by any means but I am unsure of how to categorize it, which may be its best quality overall. Call it black comedy, call it satire, call it ironic - it's all of those things & more. But watch it - you'll enjoy it - and you'll be chuckling at the end.
