Another Great Shriek Show Set,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Evil Animals: Day of the Animals / Grizzly / Devil Dog - Hound of Hell (Triple Feature) (DVD)
This is a really fun set, the movies are all fairly cheesy, retro, and all about blood thirsty nature gone wrong. I was disappointed at the packaging, having 5 disks in 1 case and not individual retail per movie packaging as my other Shriek Show sets are, I was also disappointed with Day of the Animals only having been remastered in the TV version and not the Theatrical version, but aside from those two nitpicks it's definitely one of the better Shriek Show sets. Day of the animals and Grizzly both kind of look like made for TV movies from the 70's with the exception of Grizzly having occasional gory but super quick, like 2second shots of the bear's victims. I defiantly felt some late 70's nostalgia watching these two, the uniforms and era of Grizzly reminded me a lot of the old TV show CHiPs. Day of the Animals has Leslie Nilson in a very dramatic and crazy roll and is really entertaining. The kills in both movies are quite funny with the bear decapitating people with one swipe, and birds picking people up and carrying them away and the like. The biggest surprise for me with this set was Devil Dog, which turned out to be my favorite movie of the three. This dog is impregnated by Satan or something and the resulting offspring are demon dogs that have brain washing and mind control power over humans. The evil creators of the pups place one of them with this "average American family" to wreck havoc on their lives and do the dogs bidding, this is movie is nuts, I loved it. I'm sure there's tons of bonuses and extra features in this set with the addition of the 2 bonus disks, but I'm just in it for the flicks and all three of these are entertaining and fun.
