British director Neil Marshall's directorial debut Dog Soldiers resurrects and embraces the low-budget horror-comedy. Sergeant Harry Wells (Sean Pertwee) leads a team of British soldiers on a routine expedition to the Scottish Highlands. The six men would rather be at home watching the game, but they are even more dismayed when a carcass lands on their campfire.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Marshall puts a suspenseful spin on standard horror flick formula."
‑ Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe
"Falls back mainly on army squad clichés and rote conflicts, along the way delivering a group of protagonists woefully short on personality."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"One of the best horror movies of 2002"
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"Pretend it's a werewolf itself by avoiding eye contact and walking slowly away. It's fun, but it's a real howler."
‑ Shannon J. Harvey, Sunday Times (Australia)
"Stock up on silver bullets for director Neil Marshall's intense freight train of a film."
‑ KJ Doughton, Film Threat
"One of the most gloriously unsubtle and adrenalized extreme shockers since The Evil Dead."
‑ Mark Rahner, Seattle Times
"One of the best, coolest, most action-packed horror films in years."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A relentlessly gripping werewolf thriller. One of the best horror films of recent years."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"every once in a while, a movie will come along that turns me into that annoying specimen of humanity that I usually dread encountering the most - The Fanboy"
‑ Brian Mckay,
"I'm convinced I could keep a family of five blind, crippled, Amish people alive in this situation better than these British soldiers do at keeping themselves kicking."
‑ Christopher Null,
"There is a welcome lack of pretension about the film, which very simply sets out to entertain and ends up delivering in good measure."
‑ Mark Adams, Hollywood Reporter
"One of the best all-out, no-apologies, hell-bent-for-leather horror films to emerge from the beginning of the 21st century"
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"One of those 'exception to the rule' horror movies in which a little humour and a lot of effort go a very long way."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
" of the better horror comedies to hit video store shelves in a while."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Mark me down as a non-believer in werewolf films that are not serious and rely on stupidity as a substitute for humor."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
