This extraordinarily creepy and gory tale of a group of British Army soldiers who face off against a bunch of blood-thirsty werewolves quickly became a cult hit after it was released. It was given a Blu-ray release not too long ago, but now, Scream Factory has unleashed this definitive release upon the public. There has been a little controversy in some circles regarding the picture quality, but according to the director, the original UK print could not be found for restoration. Thus, what we have here is what we get - and it's not bad at all. This is a major improvement on the previous Blu-ray for many reasons, including the treasure trove of extras that are on this particular disc.
Dog Soldiers isn't for all tastes, but for anyone that is a die-hard fan of the werewolf genre, this is a landmark film that simply cannot be missed. Shout Factory always goes the extra mile when it comes to these releases, and that love and dedication has clearly gone into Dog Soldiers, as well.
Special features include an in-depth audio commentary from director Neil Marshall, a "making of" featurette, a look at the model of the sets used in the film, a short film from Neil Marshall, a theatrical trailer, and a stills gallery.
For any fan of Dog Soldiers - or of Shout Factory, in general - this release is a must-own. This goes down in my book as one of the best Blu-rays of the year. Purchase this one as soon as possible!
