DOG SOL­DIERS (2002) 7MATE, 11.30PM, AV15+, HOR­ROR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Thrillseek­ers who en­joy a scary movie should rel­ish this flick from tyro English writer-di­rec­tor Neil Mar­shall, which pro­vides more than a cou­ple of shat­ter­ing mo­ments. In­stead of the cus­tom­ary in­no­cent teenager hor­ror­movie vic­tims, Mar­shall’s prey for the were­wolves prowl­ing an iso­lated part of the Scot­tish high­lands are crack sol­diers from a spe­cial op­er­a­tions unit. While there is plenty of gore, it is oc­ca­sion­ally re­lieved with scenes de­signed to at least crack a smile. While some of the ef­fects aren’t as so­phis­ti­cated as you might ex­pect, the twists to the fa­mil­iar genre keep ten­sion tight. ★★★
