Hellhounds is another film in the long line of Maneater films that range from terrible to so-so. This one falls in the so-so category as it follows the Sinbad/Clash of the Titans genre of films, though with a much, much smaller budget. Directed by former child actor Rick (don't call me Ricky) Schroder (even though they credited his name as Ricky behind his back, lol), Hellhounds tells the story of handsome, chiseled face warrior Kleitos (Scott Elrod) whose about to marry Princess Demetria (Amanda Brooks) until best friend Theron (J.A. Woods), whose always loved Demetria, poisons the princess and kills her before she can marry. But Uh-oh, Hades is looking for a pure, innocent bride, and Demetria happens to be that piece of tail, so Kleitos, Theron, and a nice supply of body count victims travel to the Underworld to save Demetria, which goes by relatively fast through the first half of the film, leaving the second half for the group to fend off now fully-villainous Theron and his Hellhounds (who seem to take forever to get going despite them being the title-characters). The film's most popular actor, Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) shows up VERY briefly to play the king. Overall, this movie is so-so. It's got an interesting story, but unfortunately, it's backed up by the usual problems of bad actors, poor budget, and icky special effects. Also, this movie would have gained a little more respect from me had it been given a more appropriate name besides Hellhounds (especially since these title monsters are merely an afterthought throughout this entire film save for the last 20 minutes). Pretty dull.
