The kiddies need some family-friendly horror to sink their teeth into. Think of it as training wheels for future horror fans. That’s where movies like Monster Mutt come in. The family friendly comedy follows the exploits of the family dog, Max, as an evil corporation tests their new energy drink on the lovable mutt. Max undergoes a monstrous transformation as the family tries to hold on to their beloved pet.
Monster Mutt co-stars the likes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”‘s Juliet Landau, Postal‘s Zack Ward, and Kim Fields AKA “Tootie” from “The Facts of Life”. Kim Fields – now there’s a name I haven’t heard in ages.
Todd Tucker (a co-producer of the Night of the Demons remake) directs the film for Green Pictures and Burnside Entertainment. Expect the monster dog effects to be solid considering they are being done by Oscar-winning FX house Drac Studios. You may have seen some of their make-up wizardry in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Watchmen, and you’ll see even more in the upcoming Night of the Demons remake.
I would assume with a cast boasting the likes of “Tootie” from “The Facts of Life” that Monster Mutt (website here) is more likely going to find a home going direct-to-DVD or premiering on cable rather than the big screen. Look for it somewhere sometime next year.
