This surpassed all of my expectations and then some. A surprisingly wild, crazy, drug-fueled fever dream with twists and turns every few minutes. It has a nice dreamy 80s aesthetic without being cheesy or overdone, like so many 'similar' films have failed to accomplish. Jordan Phipps is an absolute joy to watch and the ending is a great way to wrap things up in an even stranger way than everything that came before it. I highly recommend it.
As far as these B-grade Syfy / Asylum TV-films go, this one isn't half bad. Plenty of action from start to finish and kinda decent acting for what it's worth. Lazy writing and poor CGI do keep this from being any more than basic filler, but then again... I've seen so much worse and on a regular basis. And each bad experience makes me more and more skeptical of the next Syfy/Asylum production that is on my watch list. I'm just glad Battledogs isn't one of those.
What a hidden gem! I remember buying this for close to nothing on DVD a couple of years back, without any expectations at all. I noticed it was also released in the US as a double feature with The Video Dead (1987), let that be an indication! This one also is a completely bizarre, ultra cheesy and extremely gory genrefilm, very typical of its time with a complete disregard for logic. Simply putting in all the wild ideas they could…
This definitely played out like a Henenlotter-light (Bad Biology in particular) and I'm all for it! Such a fun, weird sexual bodyhorror type flick. Much better than Harrison Smith's previous films. Not necessarily a completely original concept, but it's definitely not that common. With a clever and extremely grotesque ending. Some truly repulsive effects to be enjoyed here. It takes some patience to get there, but it's most definitely rewarding.
