British director Neil Marshall's directorial debut Dog Soldiers resurrects and embraces the low-budget horror-comedy. Sergeant Harry Wells (Sean Pertwee) leads a team of British soldiers on a routine expedition to the Scottish Highlands. The six men would rather be at home watching the game, but they are even more dismayed when a carcass lands on their campfire. The next morning, they happen upon a severely injured Captain Richard Ryan (Liam Cunningham) and the bloody remains of his squadron.

One of the most gloriously unsubtle and adrenalized extreme shockers since The Evil Dead.
There is a welcome lack of pretension about the film, which very simply sets out to entertain and ends up delivering in good measure.
Falls back mainly on army squad clichés and rote conflicts, along the way delivering a group of protagonists woefully short on personality.
One of the best all-out, no-apologies, hell-bent-for-leather horror films to emerge from the beginning of the 21st century
A relentlessly gripping werewolf thriller. One of the best horror films of recent years.
One of those 'exception to the rule' horror movies in which a little humour and a lot of effort go a very long way.
Pretend it's a werewolf itself by avoiding eye contact and walking slowly away. It's fun, but it's a real howler.
every once in a while, a movie will come along that turns me into that annoying specimen of humanity that I usually dread encountering the most - The Fanboy
- Sgt. Harry Wells: My guts are out Coop!
- R/man Lawrence Cooper: We'll just put 'em back in then!
- Sgt. Harry Wells: They're not gonna fucking fit!
- R/man Lawrence Cooper: Of course they'll fit, man!
