Movie Info

Man's best friend turns against him when a horde of bloodthirsty wild dogs descends upon a family's farmhouse. In a remote stretch of the Australian Outback, a sheep rancher, his veterinarian wife, and their two teenage children live in bucolic isolation-until a horrifying night when a pack of fang-bearing, four-legged rabid beasts besiege their home. With no one around to help them, the family must band together to survive-or else become canine kibble. Generating a steadily mounting sense of dread, this film cleverly toys with genre conventions before it goes in for the kill.

  • Ultimately, these feral dogs pose no danger that couldn't be solved by staying inside, boarding the windows and barricading the doors. It's not a bad approach to the film itself.

  • We learn nothing much about the family members except that outsmarting dogs doesn't seem to be their forte. Also not a forte of anyone involved in this project: originality in picking a name.

  • "The Pack" won't make anyone forget "Jaws" - or even "Cujo."

    Feb 4, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's an effective thriller that sets out to scare the living daylights out of even the most skeptical viewer and delivers in spades.

  • Given how silly most of the films in the "killer dog" canon are, this one feels like a breath of fresh air.

    It's nearly impossible to find any redeeming quality in this ridiculous movie that never manages to be tense and is centered on a family of complete idiots (who we couldn't give a damn about) as they get surrounded by a pack of dogs that are far more intelligent than they are.
