Storyline

When the bad boy John inherits an isolated house in an island, he invites his brother and student of veterinary Matt and his girlfriend Nikki together with their common friends Sara and Noah to fly with him in his hydroplane and spend a couple of days having good time in the place. Later Sara is attacked by a dog and they recall that in the other side of the island there was a facility for training dogs that had been shutdown to avoid a rabies outbreak. While walking through the woods, they find a man called Luke, who sailed with his girlfriend Jenny to the island, covered of blood and Luke is killed by a pack of hounds. The group runs to the house and the animals put the place under siege, and they try to find a means of escape. When the survivors reach the compound, they disclose that the dogs have been genetically redesigned to become a breed of killers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When John and Matt descend from the attic, John pushes open a door to his right as if to surprise anybody within the room. This would make sense if the opponents were humans. But dogs can scent living creatures, so they probably wouldn't be surprised. If there were raging dogs within the room, it would be advisable to carefully open the door ajar and be prepared to quickly close it again. See more »

Not a bad movie
15 March 2008 | by visionhawk440See all my reviews

I picked this up at the video store because Wes Craven's name was on it and the cover looked pretty good. I've seen other movies with Craven's name on them and they pretty much sucked. After watching the first sequence I thought this was going to be one of them. The opening actors are very weak and cheesy. However, once the movie got going, it was pretty decent. Of course there are better horror movies out there but the cast was great (except for the aforementioned opening couple) and the dogs were incredible. Michelle Rodriguez was beautiful and tough as usual and the rest of the cast complimented her well. If you're looking for a special effects type movie, this isn't it. It's also not a typical "blood and gore" movie. Some parts were predictable and the ending was a little disappointing but all in all I would say this is definitely worth watching.
