Audience Reviews for Puppy

This was a very intriguing movie about a young Australian girl tossed to the curb by her sister and then saved from suicide by a random psychotic man. As the movie goes along, Aiden is panted as the villain while he keeps Liz captive and pretends that she is his runaway wife, Hellen. However, the tables turn when Liz fakes a pregnancy and pregnancy issues and gets Aiden to bring the family doctor over. The doctor reveals that Aiden is supposed to be on medication, and promises Liz that he will get her out. Aiden accidentally kills the doctor, however, and Liz restrains Aiden as he tries to suck the baby-harming 'blockage' out of here. That is where the tables turn, and Liz holds Aiden captive. She sees once she makes him take his meds that he is normal, lovely, and remorseful. Not only that, but hardly aware of what he was like off of medication. She manipulates him into living a life of domestic bliss with her, as she seems to fall in love with her messed up situation. She hides deep dark secrets from him (and the police) all the way until the end.

This was actually a really, really good movie. The plot kept throwing things at you that I really didn't expect to happen. It was awesome and kept things really interesting. The acting was amazing, and the ending was fantastic. I definitely wouldn't have predicted that to happen at all. This plot could have easily been filled with cliches e.g. girl escaping, kidnapper dying, etc., but it wasn't at all. It was completely original and it rocked. I love this movie.

This was great for a low budget Australian thriller. I can't say I have heard of any of the cast before, but I was really impressed with Nadia Townsend, she made what could have been a really awful character sympathetic and quite honestly I was almost happy for her by the end of the film, which I really shouldn't have been considering all the lies and manipulation she used! The cover on the movie compared it to both Black snake moan and Buffalo 66, and it kind of is, but different, worth a watch in it's own right.
