This is an exciting story about a convict on the run,William Miller stars as the hapless prisoner is wooden but his action scenes are well played.The mythic Spanish wolf man,Paul Naschy-Jacinto Molina-,is good as the sadistic villain,as always.The structure film is pretty plain and simple ,but concerns about the relentless pursuit and fighting among a fugitive and a savage dog following his footsteps.The picture is a remake from previous film titled : ¨The dog¨(1976)based on Alberto Vazquez Figueroa novel and directed by Antonio Isasi Isasmendi with Jason Miller,the first version develops a political intrigue with dictatorship included and resounding message.This new adaptation is a violent film with noisy action,stirring thriller and lots of blood and gore.The film is produced by Julio Fernandez(Filmax)with middling budget.Colorful and adequate cinematography by Javier Salmones,an expert Spanish cameraman(Romasanta,Thirteen chimes,The Borgia,art of dying) and atmospheric music by Mark Thomas(Dog soldiers,Agent Cody Banks 2).The motion picture is regularly directed by Brian Yuzna,a gore and guts expert director(Faust,Dentist 1,2,Society,Bride Reanimator).Rating : Average but entertaining.
