A BOY AND HIS DOG is a wild, kinky and darkly hilarious cinematic adventure, a cult classic for almost 30 years and an inspiration for an era of sci-fi films, including the Mad Max movies. Based on the Nebula winning novella by Harlan Ellison and directed by L. Q. Jones, it stars Don Johnson, Jason Robards and Susanne Benton.
Set in the year 2024 in Post-Apocalyptic America, 18-year old Vic (Johnson) and his telepathic dog Blood (voiced by Tim McIntyre) are happy scavengers in the desolate wilderness ravaged by World War Four, where survivors must battle for food, shelter, and sexual companionship in the desert-like wasteland. Vic and Blood eke out a meager existence, foraging for food and fighting gangs of cutthroats. When they find a woman named Quilla Jones (Benton), she lures Vic into a bizarre underground city, where he is to be used against his will to impregnate dozens of young ladies!
The film's dark, edgy satire is refreshingly dry... enchantingly devoid of both sentimentality and didacticism, instead it juxtaposes the desolate, rubble-strewn surface, and the surreal, silent-majority underground. Which world is stranger? Ellison reportedly stated that 'A Boy and His Dog' is one of the best adaptations of his work. --SciFi.com

|What version of "A Boy and His Dog?||
Did you ever get a response to this question, Corpsecorps? I really need to know the same thing, and it's confusing trying to choose what to buy for the best version, for sure. I don't see the "remastered" one you mention either. And how can two people report polar opposite statements... Read More
