Horror Gone To The Dogs
What do you get when you take the two worst offenders to horror and sci-fi, and team up to make a horror movie about domesticated dogs turning on those who would pet them?
The answer comes in the form of the ill-conceived Night of the Wild, which has a meteor crash in a quiet town responsible for all the sudden, aggressive dog attacks on the residents. (Apparently the dogs thought they said “meatier” and got p*ssed when it wasn’t that way at all). That it’s filmed by The Asylum™ and shown on the Sy-Fy™ Channel (debuting Saturday, October 3, 2015), isn’t the bad idea part – that they kill dogs on screen (nothing graphic, but still…) is gonna make a lot of pet owners/animal lovers seriously unhappy.
Night of the Wild’s description goes on to say “now separated by the chaos in town and blocked roads, Roslyn and the other members of her family must find each other by fighting back against the bloodthirsty hounds before the dogs take over the whole town and escape becomes impossible.”
Maybe it’s time to introduce Asylum™ and Sy-Fy™ to Cujo (1983)…
