Before he roared onto American shores with his monster-spelunking classic, The Descent, British action/horror auteur Neil Marshall cut his teeth with Dog Soldiers, a werewolf battle royale that stands toe-to-toe with his later works like Doomsday and Game of Thrones. A tale of what happens when a pack of werewolves takes on a British Army squad out on exercise in the Scottish Highlands, Marshall’s debut feature is like The Howling on steroids, as filtered through James Cameron’s Aliens. Starring Trainspotting‘s Kevin McKidd and the great Sean Pertwee, Dog Soldiers originally debuted stateside on the SyFy channel (!), a crime against cinema we plan to rectify with a full-on theatrical showing. And the best part? Marshall himself will be attendance for this once-in-a-lifetime, howl at the moon event!
Dir. Neil Marshall, 2002, 35mm, 105 min.
