Storyline

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

Predictable to the core...
10 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This particular psychological horror/thriller movie was a bit tame at best, and there are far better movies in the same genre available.

The story here is about a serial killer named Jyd (played by Innis Casey) who abducts women, keep them alive, and once done with them he cuts them up, eat them and feed them to his dog. Having her car run out of gas in the middle of a dark road, Audra (played by Galadriel Stineman) gets help from Jyd as he rolls up in his tow truck. However, the saying "don't ride with strangers" turns out to be more than true in this case. After several days of missing, Samantha Deatherage (played by Vivica A. Fox) is put on the case to find the missing girl.

Well, the story was interesting enough, but the movie quickly settled and nested in a monotone pace and never really got back out of that ditch. Which ultimately made the movie end up as being slow and half-hearted.

As for the acting, well not even Brad Dourif managed to pull this movie out of mediocrity. The movie, however, was carried by the performances put on by both Innis Casey and Vivica A. Fox. I just never bought into the performance put on Galadriel Stineman, as her portrayal of an abducted and molested victim never really seemed plausible.

This is the type of movie that just oozes and reeks of predictability, and you know the outcome of the movie already from the start of the feature. There weren't any surprises or twists along the way to throw the audience off the track. No, the movie just trotted along in its slow, dull and comfortable pace. The audience is always one step ahead of the movie because it is so predictable.

If you enjoy psychological thrillers, then your money would be better invested elsewhere.
