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.

Critic Reviews for The Pack

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

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."

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.

The Pack is pretty terrific.

Audience Reviews for The Pack

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.
