Worthwhile killer beast flick
12 March 2014 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

Leigh Scott's "The Beast of Bray Road," released in 2005, is a very loose telling of the legendary "dogman" of SE Wisconsin. In reality, the beast has only been sighted and has never killed anyone. In the film, however, numerous people bite the dust in extremely gory scenes, heads getting torn off, the beast eating their innards, etc.

In the beginning it's unclear what type of beast the "dogman" is, is it a bigfoot? A werewolf? A cryptozoologist appears and helps the police pinpoint the probable nature of the creature.

POSITIVES:

  • I liked the main protagonists, the police chief (Jeff Denton), the
cryptozoologist, the beautiful bartender Kelly (Sarah Lieving) and the other police personnel.

  • The story is generally compelling and moves right along.


  • The killer creature looks excellent and you get quite a few good
looks at it; no CGI.

  • The story turns out to be a mystery. The beast may be a human being
that transforms into the bloodthirsty creature. If so, who is it? If you've seen films like "The Howling V: The Rebirth" you know what to look for.

NEGATIVES:

  • Although the story takes place near Elkhorn & Lake Geneva, Wisconsin,
the film was shot in friggin' California, near Los Angeles, likely to keep expenses down; they did fine, however, making sure the scenery didn't look too much like typical Southern California. It sorta passes for SE Wisconsin, I guess.

  • The film is filled with gorgeous women from beginning to end but Mr.
Scott fumbles the ball and doesn't truly take advantage (and I'm not talking about top nudity or sex scenes at all; the film has some of both). Scott does much better in this area in 2008's "Flu Birds" and 2009's "The Dunwich Horror."

  • Until the last act the film has a we're-not-taking-this-too-seriously
vibe. It wasn't so bad to ruin the horror experience, but it was there. This is a minor cavil, however; all-in-all the filmmakers did a decent job balancing camp with serious horror.

  • Every Wisconsin yokel, male or female, is portrayed as a hip, dour,
alcohol-guzzling sex-fiend.

BOTTOM LINE: "The Beast of Bray Road" is a worthwhile killer beast flick but contains enough negative elements to prevent it from being truly good. The non-CGI monster looks great, however, and is worth the price of admission, not to mention this is a must if you're a gorehound (I'm not; I can take gore or leave it; all I care about is that the story & cast be interesting and entertaining).

The film runs 80 minutes.

GRADE: Borderline C+ or B-
