Puppy (2007, USA) C-79m. * D: Sony Green, Jennifer Emsley. Starring Calico Cooper, Kay Vasilyeva, Greg Land, Sarah Rodebaugh, Brittany Accosta. Amateur splatter movie about a thousand-year-old killer puppy from the Vikings(!), who is washed ashore in modern-day America and after being taken in by some coeds starts killing and cannibalising everybody. Splatter horror comedy made on a shoe-string budget is pretty gross, but with a plot that tries to stay 'straight' and doesn't completely succumb to its effects, it stays less offensive than others of its kind, although the acting and the direction are often inept.
