Did You Know?


In order to get the dogs to attack, they were deprived of food for two days and the actors were packed with warmed dog food intended to resemble guts. Stunt men were employed for this sequence, but Carlos Santurio and Emilio Linder insisted on performing the scene themselves. See more »


Vince's eyeshadow changes from a bold bright blue to a duller shade and back again all throughout the final half of the film, sometimes within the same scene. See more »


Marilou: Are you going to leave me here alone?
Sandra: You'll be safe enough locked in here.
Marilou: But what if you don't come back?
Sandra: Well, you better pray that we do.

A Monster Log
1 October 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

An Italian 80's horror film starring Alice Cooper. I think he offered to do this on the pretense that it was only going to be distributed somewhere overseas. Oops. This one has Cooper going to an old mansion to shoot a rock video. There is two songs of his that he performs in faux videos that I don't think he released on anything else so if you are a fan check it out.

The town is rampant with wild dogs all attacking everyone where we later learn they are being controlled by a werewolf. The violence is mild in this one.

The film is corny as hell but fun to watch. Alice Cooper doesn't do too bad of a job.
