Anyway, it's free bad movie day today, so let's get our bad movie on! Today's film is a pretty crappy made for tv crapfest about a crappy looking satanic dog.
And also the movie's crap.
Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia god and the New York Times ...
"Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell is a 1978 television movie directed by Curtis Harrington. The story centers on a suburban family and the harrowing experiences they endure from a possessed dog they innocently adopt. The film stars Richard Crenna as Mike Barry, the father, Yvette Mimieux as Betty, the mother, and Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann as Bonnie and Charlie, their children. The latter two starred in Disney's Witch Mountain series, but were not intentionally cast based on that fact, just on that they looked believable as siblings.
This amusingly cheesy made-for-TV opus from director Curtis Harrington pits a relatively normal suburban family against a slavering, demonically-possessed German shepherd whose hunger for human souls far exceeds that of the normal household pet. Although not above resorting to the usual throat-maulings, the satanic psycho-pup's preferred method of attack is to supernaturally cause the deaths of various friends and neighbors, in a style reminiscent of The Omen. Though the gory potential of this scenario is obviously dulled by the TV-movie format, there are enough implied shocks and chills to keep up the pace."
That's my new shirt. I love it.
Man, gotta love free movie day!
