Dogman

 (270)3.71 h 30 min2012X-Ray13+
Hanklin Purvis enjoys the outdoors, and he loves to hunt. He and his wife, Dorothy, live on a farm in the rural mid-west. For some reason, during the season before autumn, things start happening. The first victims are family pets, then wild animals. But it's not until people are injured that the police get involved. The attacker is not human, that's for sure and it needs to be stopped.

It's Dog****
Verified purchase
The genre states suspense and horror. There's neither here. It's a poorly done comedy. The poor direction is only matched by the poor acting and ridiculous script. This is supposed to be a werewolf type of movie, but with a dog face. It's moronic from the beginning where the wife chases someone stealing their snowmobile (in a swamp, no less). The thieves are actually riding the snowmobile through the woods. There's no snow. It's over 70 degrees. The dog thing is attacking livestock, dogs, and finally humans. You won't really care. There's the brave sheriff's deputy (think Barney Fife), the mysterious folklore woman who has all the answers, but doesn't share, Homer Simpson, Marge and Beavis and Butthead. There's no real ending to this movie except that they couldn't figure out how it should end so just let the credits roll for no reason when the scriptwriter got tired of putting out more dreck. The biggest mysteries in this film are what kind of pie did Marge make for her husband and the deputy and why does Sprite work to kill the germs from being mauled by the dog thing? It was THAT ridiculous. Rent "An American Werewolf in London" instead.

Should've not bothered, wouldn't call this a horror movie, I laughed at how ridiculous it was.

OK but horrible effects
Verified purchase
Because I watched the first one, I needed to see the second. The only thing with this one is that they showed the dogman litter. I can't believe that in this day and age they would put a movie out with such horrible costumes on these dogmen. They literally looked like one of the crew made them out of leftover faux fur from the fabric store. They were worse than some 1950's werewolf films. I liked seeing the same actors but even with the comedy still there it was a bit of a stinker movie. It answered some questions so if you enjoyed the first one, you will want to watch this one too.

Dogman (2012)
Verified purchase
Dogman (2012) - Be it know that the cast shown in “Xray mode” is not the cast for this movie. Amazon is showing the cast of another identically named ‘Dogman’ movie made in 2018, which is an Italian crime movie totally diff cast. Real cast listed below.

Started out as a really good creature movie, It kept my interest with all of the legend stuff. But I hated the ending or there lack of. I kinda felt deflated after all the hype through out it. I guess you have to write your own ending... But I always appreciate a free movie.

This is the cast for the movie Dogman (2012) with Larry Joe Campbell as Hank: Some of you may remember Larry Campbell from his roll in the comedy ‘According to Jim’ he played Andy, brother in law to Jim Belushi. Funny guy, really good actor.

CAST:

Larry Joe Campbell … Hanklin Purvis
Mariann Mayberry …Dorothy Purvis
Kimberly Guerrero … Francis Wellman
Stacie Hadgikosti … Deputy Samels
Tom Cilluffo ……. Jeshen Purvis
Luke Bonczyk …… Sam Reynolds
Lynch R. Travis ….. ER Doctor
John Lepard ……. Doctor
Benjamin Busch ….... Injured Bicyclist

DOGMAN< LEGEND MEETS FANTASY
Verified purchase
OK< THE ACTING WAS ADEQUATE, WITH LARRY CAMBELL< PART TIME CATOR< PART TIME HS FOOTBABALL COACH IN THE LEAD ROLE. FOR THE FIRST 3/4 IT WAS ADEQUATE< IT GREW ON ME, BUT THEN IT STARTED TO WANDER INTO WEREWOLF TERITORY. ALRIGHT IF YOU'RE INTO THAT; BUT FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIKE THE SCRIPT TO STICK TO CURRENT RESEARCH WITHOUT BECOMING A DOCUMENTARY; THIS IS WHERE IT BEGINS TO WANDER TOO FAR FOR ME. WITHOUT BECOMING A SPOILER, I'LL JUST SAY THAT FOR ME, THE WORST PART IS THE ENDING... AND, JUST BEPREPARED TO WATCH "DOGMAN 2, THE POULTICE." I JUST WISH SOMEONE WOULD MAKE A MOVIE THAT STICKS TO CURRENT RESEARCH... OR AT LEAST USES IT TO INSPIRE S A SCRIPT A BIT MORE PLAUSIBLE; THEY LOST ME WITH THE DOGMAN SEIZURES... PLEASE THOUGH, IN PART DEUX, I HOPE TO THE MOUND GODS THEY DON'T HAVE THE PACK START HOWLING AT THE MOON AND PEEING ON MORE STUFF. WHY WLD A DOGMAN STEAL A SNOW MACHINE ANYWAY. MAYBE PART TWO WILL EXPLAIN THAT AGE OLD MYSTERY... AND THAT RIDICULOUS LINE ABOUT "OLD" CHAINS? IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS TO DO A DOGMAN MOVIE, I'D MAKE AN INCREDIBLE CONSULTANT.

There's some thing in the woods...........
Verified purchase
I enjoyed this film. It has good character actors who do a good job portraying "real people" who 'real live" doing the things you or I would do. Then pets start disappearing .. the chickens and farm animals. People of course are next, but there's no gore or blood. Every thing is done by suggestion a la Psycho. You get only glimpses and the suggestion of a Presence OUT THERE watching and waiting. In the barn. Or the bed of a truck. But it's coming closer...and Closer...and CLOSER. A fun movie combining the myth of Dogman intruding into people's lives.

Good indie film of a Northern Michigan legend
Verified purchase
Set in Benzie County, Dogman dramatizes a dark Anishinaabeg legend, one of two (the other being the cannibalistic Windigo) that are the stuff of youthful nightmares after late night storytelling around a campfire in the woods, likely along the Big Manistee River or in the forests of the region. It's a classic example of indie film actors working with ordinary folk living in the town (Beulah, near Crystal Lake), good story-telling and the kind of charming home-made costuming that will make a viewer crack up laughing if he or she has any sense of humor. Great film for your Northern Michigan vacation, best paired with Jeff Daniels' Escanaba in Da Moonlight.

Unwilling suspension of disbelief
Verified purchase
Wow! A storyline that still has actors saying, doing, ignoring every single facet of common sense to support an unlikely plot. This had potential for a decent B movie. Than, cue the stupid! Who knew Dogman looks like a wolf/kangaroo hybrid. And they relate to an iconic spiritual Indian matriarch? Only to be subdued by an amazon vegan schizoid with a golf club (looked like a 9 iron).
Hank (aka The Baconator) and his clutch of disparate cronies, all have the native cunning of a domestic pigeon. Halfway through, I was praying for the vicious, evil beasts to wipe these fools from the screen, and redeem the movie. Regrettably it never happened, leaving us wide open for Dogman 3, Escape From the Kennel. Dissapointment barely scratches the surface regarding this movie.
