Dog Soldiers

Hello my Freaky Darlings,

This weeks movie is Dog Soldiers (2002).

A squad of British soldiers is sent out on manoeuvres into the wilds of Scotland. They thought the worst they had to worry about was missing the biggest football match of the decade, but what should have been a routine military exercise turns into a nightmare for Sergeant Harry Wells (Sean Pertwee) and Riflemen Lawrence Cooper (Kevin McKidd), Joe Kirkley (Chris Robson), Terry Milburn (Leslie Simpson), Phil Witherspoon (Darren Morfitt) and Corporal Bruce Campbell (Thomas Lockyer).

Something’s out there…and it’s hungry. Very hungry. And hairy…. very hairy.

This week I finally got to watch some British horror and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Kevin McKidd is a brilliant actor and he was once again great in this flick. Although there were moments were it was a tad predictable, I was still kept at the edge of my seat and I appreciated the tongue-in-cheek approach. My favourite line in the movie is “I hope I give you the shits!” It’s brilliant! I hope, that if I’m ever about to be mauled by a Werewolf, I manage to come up with memorable one-liners.

Have you watched it? What did you think?
