a real dog, 23 April 2009
Author: movieman_kev from United States

While at the funeral of his father, Danny (Writer/director Brett Kelly) is attacked by something unseen. Refusing to go to a hospital despite the gash on his head, he instead finds himself at home later that night soaking in the bathtub. Meanwhile a dog & her owner are killed by something unseen. Danny, who had fallen asleep, awakens in reddened water. During the following nights his life continue's to spiral downwards. Just what is Danny becoming? Could a hint could be found in the title of the film?

This movie chooses to focus on a supposed 'mystery' of who the mystery killer could be, something anyone who was even halfway paying attention could easily deduce very early on in the film. With that supposed mystery aspect dead in the water, we instead are forced to really on the caliber of the acting to carry the film. The thing is the film is full of wooden actors spouting horribly stilted dialog. Combine this with shoddy minimalistic special effects, down right boring storyline, and a sappy still music montage about halfway through the film to pad out it's already anorexic running time of little over an hour (which is still under an without the end credits) and you get a rather bad film that isn't worth your time. However, it's still better than the writer/director/actor's later film "the Bonesetter Returns"

Eye Candy: Elizabeth Woods provides a minimal amount of T&A

My Grade: D-

Where I saw it: Instant Netflix viewing
