18 July 2007 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A prisoner in a future location manages to escape and is chased throughout the country by a cruel warden(Luis Homar) and a bloodthirsty dog.The prisoner is again recaptured but when he finds with the vigilante, a rabbit gives him a chance to flee.The dog is severely beaten and with surgery its bones are replaced with metal.The protagonist goes to a house living a woman(Paulina Galvez) and her daughter(Ibana Vaquero:Pan's labyrinth) and the dog continues attacking ,but circumstance again gives him an opportunity for freedom,which he takes,solely he still encounter himself being pursued by the terrible animal.The dog goes after him and will cross hundred miles to get to him.He attempts to arrive the city of Puerto Angel where thinks encounter his fiancée named Ula.Meanwhile are developed various flashbacks and recalls his past on relationship with her. Finally ,he will confront against a brutal nasty(Paul Naschy) and the gruesome robot dog.

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.
