31 Days of Horror – Day 19 – Dog Soldiers

Dog Soldiers

For all the litany of well-made horrors featuring ghosts, zombies, and crazed psychopaths; it’s a rare find when the stars align for the emergence of a successful werewolf tale. Thankfully, this was the case with Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers. A squad of British soldiers competing against a group of special forces commandos on a training exercise in the highlands of Scotland find their maneuvers waylaid when they encounter a vicious band of werewolves. While retreating from a deadly attack, the group encounters a zoologist who provides insight into the menace and the group braces for a final showdown between man and monster. Though known more to American audiences for his sophomore effort, The Descent, Marshall delivers a gripping and intense film driven by strong performances by Sean Pertwee, Kevin McKidd, and Liam Cunningham as well as a group of well-crafted werewolves by Image FX.
