Inspired by actual events, JUNKYARD DOG is a gritty psychological-horror-thriller that delves the demented mind of a cannibalistic serial rapist who kidnaps his tenth victim in as many months on Halloween night. Filmed on location in Tennessee, JUNKYARD DOG tells the terror-filled tale of Audra Buckman, a nineteen year-old college co-ed, trapped in a month-long nightmare, struggling to stay alive and uneaten while being held captive, left half-starved and repeatedly savaged by JYD, an oddly charismatic, vicious man-eating monster. Audra's only hope of escape from this hell--and the mouth of a madman--is Samantha Deatherage, a tough FBI agent who is sent on a solo assignment to search for the missing girl. Written by Anonymous

"She looked a hell lot better than she tastes".
5 November 2011 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

What can you say, interesting enough premise (supposedly inspired by actual events) let down by flatfooted and tame execution. Despite it's unpleasant details and dreary context --- a backwoods tow-truck driver is a serial killer who kidnaps unlucky girls at the end of every month holding them in a water tank in his wrecking yard where he constantly eats with them and then rapes them… so this a constant pattern and when it comes to the end of the following month. He kills them, chops them up and virtually eats them… sharing the leftovers with his dog (which is the size of a horse… not really but one character believes so). So its time to look for another calendar pin-up for next month. But the girl he kidnapped on Halloween has drawn the attention of an FBI agent. So the race begins to find her, before she becomes his next meal. This cheap, shot-on-video production felt like a clunky second-rate "Silence of the Lambs" crossed "Captivity" outing. It tries too hard to be ominous and cruel, but felt daftly comedic in its attempts. Kind of dearth of suspense and thrills… lingering with lousy jump jolts and stupid plot contrivances. Some things that occur just have you questioning how this killer could go this long without being caught and some of the investigation skills by the FBI agent (namely the line-dancing interruption) are laughable. Performances are on the lank side, although genre favourite Brad Dourif gets a bit of screen time as a town sheriff who "eventually" figures out what's going on. Innis Casey plays the deranged serial killer, as the camera likes to really focus on Casey's glassy expressions. Galadriel Stineman gives the usual victim performance and Vivica A. Fox as the headstrong FBI agent with (you guess) a scarred past ("Can you still pull the trigger?"). These are underwritten characters, which only show minor glimpses of their complexities and conflicted sides. Too bad because it did seem meander about, on repetitive and tired actions/scenarios and especially when there was one fascinatingly dark, if minor sequence involving a dinner scene involving the killer and his dead parents. Diverting, but an exaggeratedly slipshod serial killer thriller.

"This fairytale is not going to have a happy ending."
