A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad.

With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves. Written by Dismal Angel

Did You Know?


The insurance did not cover the actors jumping out of the helicopter early in the film. As most of the crew were ex-army they jumped out of it instead. The crew also doubled up as Sgt Well's soldiers for some of the tabbing shots. See more »


When Sam the dog has a mouthful of Wells's bandage, some of the bandage is hanging out of Sam's mouth. In the next shot, no pieces are hanging out of his mouth. See more »

Best Werewolf movie I've seen
13 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Best way to describe this movie is the Howling Meets Evil Dead 2. It is fast paced but still develops all of the characters so that you know and feel for each of them. There is hardly if any CGI effects in this movie which works to its benefit because it draws you more into the story and the utter eeriness of the upper Scotland woods. It is very hard these days to find a good horror movie that will make you jump then laugh a second later. Don't let the fact that there are no big name stars in dog soldiers let you miss this one if anything it adds to the feel of the movie it makes you feel as if you are one of the soldiers sitting around the campfire with them. It is one of the best horror movies out there and quite possibly the best werewolf movie ever made. Note: If you have the opportunity get the DVD with the making of extras and cast interviews it will give you not only a good look into what it takes to make a good horror movie but how to tell a story right from beginning to end.
