Director Neil Marshall hit the scene in 2002 with the darkly comic but ferocious werewolf movie Dog Soldiers. Since then, he has gone on to director other cult horror films, as well as award-winning episodes of Game of Thrones. With the latter being what is currently the most popular TV show in the world aside from The Walking Dead, it seems appropriate that Dog Soldiers should get a bit of a resurgence, especially in the U.S. where it never really got a proper theatrical release. Despite the film taking place in Scotland, it was actually shot on location in Luxembourg, down and dirty with little to no CGI editions later during post production. And while it contains many direct references to all things horror and sci-fi related, it manages to forge its own place in the annals of horror history as a return to the brutal and edgy movies of the past with practical effects and more interesting characters. The action-oriented moments are often quite frenetic and perhaps just a little over-the-top at times, while the gore is unapologetically up front and in full form. And while it's mostly a dark horror comedy, it plays it completely straight for most of its running time. It may be a bit on the predictable side, but the overall product is quite entertaining.
