Ahh, the 3D craze of the early 80's. Some films were great and used the gimmick really well (take a bow, Friday the 13th 3D) whilst others were films just a flat and mediocre in 3D as they would have been in 2D.†This film belongs in the latter category.

I only watched this as I saw the VHS art on a friend's Instagram page and it looked luridly interesting.

A truckload of killer dogs trained by the army to fight like a whole battalion of men runs off the road and crashes releasing it's deadly cargo in a small American town- the kind of town that has mud wrestling in the local bars. The scientist who trained the dogs arrives to try to make sure the dogs don't kill too many people. Or is he secretly interested in saving his work?

There are no spliffs being passed to the audience, no eyeballs being popped out or snakes †in sense shattering 3D to look forward to here. In fact I watched this in less than stunning 2D and the film feels more like an early 80's TV movie like The Savage Bees (but not as good) than like a proper film made for the cinema. In fact this feels like it was only †distributed as a film as it was shot in 3D and the gimmick wouldn't have worked if it was shown on TV's rather than on a cinema screen.

In fact the guy who consulted on the 3D for this film also worked on Jaws 3D. If theres any bigger warning against seeing this film then that's it.†

In the early 80s there was sorta a resurgence of 3D movies. Not like today where it seems that every other movie that comes out is 3D reliant & you can even get 3D televisions for your home. We're talking old school & I kicked it really old school when watching Rottweiler by viewing it in red/blue anaglyph. Even though this is a pretty primitive special effects process & can be more headache inducing then anything else it does work on occasion & even though Rottweiler was fairly cheap in its attempt I had a pretty good time. It's not everyday that I get to see mud wrestling in 3D. The flix itself its not bad but my sympathies lay w/ the dogs. Sure their mauling the shit out of people but you don't have to blow their fucking heads off. Poor poochies

Watched this at the Charlotte Film festival.

I have to say watching this was one of the best theater experiences I have ever had. The whole crowd was laughing at every scene and every line of the dialogue. It felt like I was in some kind of grindhouse theater.

Even though it was one of the worst films I have every watched, the TERRIBLE acting, the hilariously bad "3D" directing and the LOL dialogue made it the most enjoyable bad film I have ever watched.

My jaw was hurting by end of the film because of how much I laughed.

No rating whatsoever. This is without a doubt the worst film I have ever seen.

Not only is the plot ridiculous but for some reason the film's full of shotty 3d which makes it worse still.
