    Italialaisen häiriintynyt tunnelma. Tekninen toteutus melko kömpelöä.

    'Rabid Dogs' is a raw and gritty heist-gone-wrong thriller that only Mario Bava could have made. It's an intimate, no-frills shocker that is driven, chiefly, by some superbly unhinged performances, and it manages to keep the viewer guessing with twist after twist.

    A film produced in 1974, but not released until 1997. Interesting Italian crime thriller with cool (almost continuous) music and a great story. A robbery goes wrong and the nutty gang occupy a family car. A man, a lady and a sick kid in need of an hospital are in it and they don't appreciate the three new hikers. Looks a bit simple or even amaturish made but it's quite charming. The tensity is almost constant and new elements are brought to the story as it adds suspence. We even get a neat twist here. Not perfect, but an overlooked film. Gritty but realistic. 6.5 out of 10 paninis.

    Relentless and gritty. This is a film that works because of how focused its vision is. It's cynical and knows it and doesn't apologize for it. Its well made. It's also hammy at times, some of the performances are distractingly over the top and the voice over work is atrocious, as a lot low budget Italian cinema is in that area, but it's an effective, fast paced thriller with a great ending.

    Mario Bava's EuroCrime classic is claustrophobic at times. Text book heist gone bad/kidnap flick. The humiliation scene is really disturbing and the soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani is the fucking balls. The ending is genius.

    One comes from this film with a horror of the criminal rather than a wish to emulate. In this real time robbery, murder and car-jacking, Bava takes us to the precipice, the edge of reason and finally beyond all semblance of humanity.

    Dare I say, Bava's best film. Very tense.
