A group of people that
are on a vacation cruise in a bad area of
Spain are killed or taken hostage at a
prison with evil people owned by a man
named Kufard (Paul Naschy) who owns a
vicious rottweiler who he trains to kill
people who try to escape.
He rapes a woman named Ula (Irene
Montala) and then sets his dog to kill
her. Her boyfriend named Dante (William
Miller) beats the dog half to death
causing the dog serious injuries
including having all his teeth knocked
out that the dog is turned into a half
robot. Dante escapes from the prison and
the dog is set to track him down and to
kill him for revenge.
There's a good start with Dante looking injured as a prisoner
and being kicked around by a guard
which looked quite intense.
We spot many good takes on both Dante and supporting character Dongoro through
a forestry area in the mountains as well
as a gruesome shot on Dongoro himself being
chewed up by the rottweiler with Dante trying to find any way on getting out of
the madness that's happening.
There's many great camera takes on him running through the mountains and gasping
for breath as well as him looking
paranoid spotting hallucinations with a
shot on a robotic dog.
A good shot on him resting and then suddenly the dog biting
his hand which almost makes you jump with
a shot looking up on the guard pointing a gun at him and speaking
nastily towards him.
A good shot on a rabbit hopping
nearby while Dante tries to
tempt the dog to get it while there's a
good shot on him chained up which looked
strongly done and then there's many great
camera takes on him grabbing a rifle and
shooting the dog as well as good shots on the guard being shot half to death
with good reactions on him in extreme
We spot a nice flashback sequence with Dante on a boat and having a nice romantic
discussion with Ula which looked very nice and peaceful. The
shots on the two of them looked well
We spot a great shot on the two of them
diving in the water after another ship
invades theirs with good shots on them
jumping in and swimming for their lives.
We have a great misty shot on the dog and
it's teeth moving rising up with a nice
shot on Dongoro weakly telling the
dog to go and find his prisoner which
looked like a nice horror moment with
all the settings taking place during all
We have a good shot on Dante bathing in a river and then the dog
watching him with as well as interesting
shots on him running nude up some hills.
There's a nice moment when he is back in
the river with the dog jumping at him and
shots on them rolling in the water which
looked more funny than scary on how it
There's another good flashback moment
with a discussion between Kufard getting cold and demanding with both Dante and Ula why they're there as
the scene looked a little intimidating.
We spot a nice moment witha woman in white trying
to make a move on Dante and
A good shot looking up from an
outdoor cellar with supporting character Alyah and her daughter Esperanza about
to go into the cellar with nice fears on Esperanza thinking there's a monster down there
with Alyah trying to assure her
there's nothing down there which looked
good as a mother and child act.
We have a great moment with Alyah pointing a shotgun at Dante and
being forceful to him as well as her
coming on strong to him in a bedroom and
then funny shots on her fornicating with
There's a great shot on the dog trying to
smash through a door of a house with Dante trying to lead the mother and daughter to safety.
We spot a good shot on a closed cellar
door with Alyah being dragged
and chewed up which looked disturbing.
A good discussion with a nice shot
on Esperanza holding a flower and
sobbing with Dante peacefully
talking to her while sitting in a
backseat of a truck as it looked very
There's a good flashback with Ula looking disturbed after being molested in
which this scene made
it very clear and Dante getting
fresh with her having an attitude towards
her after what had happened.
Perfect shots with Dante and Guard Borg in a cemetary with
mist around them making the moment seem
We spot many good quick shots on Dante battling with Kufard in a
helicopter with the dog attacking as
A great flashback disturbing shot
on the dog attacking Ula and
chewing her up almost making it hard to
watch. Plus we have many shots on him
acting menacing by trying to kill the dog
showing a terrific raging attitude.
We spot many good shots on the dog
running or leaping in to attack through
most of the scene's of the movie but
sometimes the moments on this is a
little too quick.
Bottom line is that this is a confusing, evil
and pointless story shot in Spain. The
story doesn't make sense at all but it's
still fun to watch and entertaining too
for an average flick. There's some
interesting cheesy effects and the action
sequences but otherwise the story is a
bore. It's also very disturbing too. It's every persons nightmare to go
travelling and then get caught with the
wrong people and causing you your life.
It also looks like they borrowed heavily
from the Terminator
flicks too using a robotic dog with how
it's eyes glow red. People easily misinterpret rottweilers as
vicious dogs but it's really the owners
who are vicious as most rotties I
encounter are very tolerent with people
that have good owners.
The acting is in
good shape even if there was only 3 main
characters in the film. For lead actor William
Miller (Dante), he does well and is totally
energised with everything he had to do
while trying to run away from the vicious
robotic dog. He had a beefcake type of
image to his part in the film but he
looks didn't do all the talking since he
knew on how to get into character for all
of this showing great aggressions as well
as knowing how to act intense on certain
situations especially during the
beginning of his performance. A great panicked
reaction on him after he spots the dog while bathing outdoors.
Irene Montala (Ula) does well with her
upsetting emotions and her sensitive
attitude too coming across as a nice
innocent one in the film. She knew how to
scream too. She really brought her
character to life on the set of filming
Paul Naschy (Kufard) lived to play an evil
and cold blooded owenr of his rottweiler
and seemed to really know how to portray
a MAFIA type of character but he made his
part alot nastier and sleazy than those
types that you won't want in your life at
all. He deserves great credit for his wok
in this film.
We also have a small supporting role by
Lluis Homar (Guard Borg) as a nasty guard
showing a good firm attitude and nasty
expressions too having a silent type of
voice that it comes across very
intimidating. He had the prefect rough
looks to play this type of role.
There's another small supporting role by Barbara
Elorieeta (Woman in White) as a hooker who really
knew how to come across flirtatiously and
sleazy with a nice insane attitude too.
There is a male nude scene
of Miller's character after
skinny dipping is being chased by the
killer rottie with a full body shot
during many scenes.
A woman played by Paulina
Galvez fornicates with him breasts
This rottie is quite a
killing machine. A guys arm is chewed off
and his head is kept in a sack by the
More people are being chewn up especially
with a guys neck bitten open.
There are slaughtered dogs and a rooster
near a farmland
More flesh by people being torn out.
There's a good low
down western type guitar playing for the
gritty parts as well as light Spanish
classical accoustic guitar chords too
which also sounded greatly done. Also we
spot some synthesizer low violin sounds
which was low budget sounding but in a
good way composed by Mark Thomas.
