BRUTAL DOGO (1998)

Written by: Greigh Johanson.

I had never heard of this title until I randomly found it on YouTube. This is a Spanish backyard splatter from 1998 directed by Daniel Moreno. I don't even know if this is a good tip for you because the film didn't appeal to me at all. This is apparently a sequel to another short film called "PURULENTAL MASRICATOR" which practically does not exist because I can not find it anywhere.






This short film is about a group of rural punks who assembles a party where alcohol and drugs are the main protagonists. But what they do not know is that there is a maniac in a gas mask whose brain is controlled by a space-mask that transforms him into a violent killer. His weapons are his hands and a saw, and his job is to crash the party by murdering everyone involved.

There are two memorable killing scenes with a nice variety of low-budget gore. A little boy gets his head pressed until it explodes and a man gets his head sawed in half. Besides these two scenes the remaining majority of murders are off-screen with a blood spatter or a dead body. There is little gore during the intro and some scenes at the end, but it's too fast and dark done to be worthy of mention. No subtitles are treated to either, but I don't think the dialogue has a major impact.

Even if the film lacks subtitle, you can understand the film's plot through pictures. It lacks logic and feels like a cheap copy of the already cheap "Bad Karma" directed by Alex Chandon. The quality is very grainy and recorded with an ordinary handheld camera - sound and light set is among the worst and there is much that is lost. As I mentioned; I do not recommend this movie as long as you are not a hardcore freak and eating all kinds of crap you can find.

Rating: 1.5 out of 5.
