Slaughter aka Dogs On the quiet campus of the remotely-located SouthwesternUniversity, something strange is happening; all of the dogs in the area, once loyal, gentle pets, are now banding together in wild, feral packs and hunting down their former masters. Could the strange transformation have anything to do with the secret government experiements being conducted in the school’s physics laboratory? More importantly, can the dogs be stopped before it’s too late?
A truly fantastic Sci-fi cinematic masterpiece.
A true story.
at 13 & 10, my younger brother and i, who had a large 2 yr old neighborhood Shepperd (turk), went to see this movie and were unaware of the terror this film evoked until coming home from the theater that night. being a neighborhood dog, turk was roaming in the night alley as we walked by.
recognizing us, of course, with his reflective eyes, the dog advanced toward us. if you can imagine two boys being chased by their own dog down the street screaming murder, in sheer terror. we were banging on the door for help. the dog thought we were playing and joined in and further excited our fears.
over 20 yrs later my brother and i tell that story with fond memories of the era the dog and the movie.
having grown up in the horror hay-day of the 70s and having, arguably, seen the best and worst that Hollywood has to offer. psychologically, this film teems with possibilities for a remake. without all that computer generated junk.
