The final scene was filmed in the same studio set room in Los Angeles as was used for the movie Saw (2004). See more »


Pancuronium Bromide is safe... If you perform an endotracheal intubation and mechanic ventilation after administering it. It's an old anesthesia drug and it paralyses your breathing musculature. The character says he used it on himself. He was all alone and that would certainly kill him. The drug would certainly kill the girl also as we don't see him doing anything to aid her breathing.

Pet: Should have been so much better
16 July 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Interesting thriller starring Lost & Lord Of The Rings star Dominic Monaghan and Lost Girls Ksenia Solo (In a very well deserved leading role) telling the story of an animal shelter worker who becomes dangerously obsessed with former classmate.

Dark, gritty and with some well played out psychological horror Pet is one of those movies that should have been something special but just fell short of the finishing line. And by fell short of the finishing line I mean slipped on a banana peel span 360 backflipped and landed on its head 3 inches from the line in the exact spot Mrs Smiths prized poodle decided to curl one out! I'm not saying Pet is bad I'm just saying it should have been a lot better, a bit longer and with a more satisfying finale.

Once again I have to say it was great seeing Ksenia Solo in such a role but feel that had the movie had more competent writers this would have been something worthy of her resume.

Also worth noting that the movies characters are simply unlikeable and that damages it somewhat. The movie near opens with a scene which made me hate a character so much I wanted to leap through the TV screen grab the characters mop turn it sideways and shove it where evolution for some reason put the male g-spot.

I digress, perfectly watchable effort but should have been so much more than it turned out to be.
