Have You Seen Battledogs?

Apparently this CG-filled action-packed werewolf flick came out last month and I totally missed it! If it weren’t for Werewolf-News.com I would have never known it even existed. Shame on me! How could I miss a new movie?!

Battledogs-posterSo, the movie is Battledogs (no, it’s not about dogs) and it aired on SyFy last month. Yes, it’s an original SyFy flick and those usually suck. But still, it’s a werewolf movie and werewolf movies always get love here. Plus it actually looks potentially awesome. Anyway, it’s all about this epic battle against werewolves. The trailer and synopsis remind me a bit of the novel Dog World by Jason McKinney though. Hmmm…

What do you think? Check out the synopsis and trailer down yonder.

Battledogs description:

“When a werewolf virus threatens to decimate New York City — and the world — a rogue general uses the disease to create an army of super soldiers. Battledogs stars Dennis Haysbert, Craig Sheffer, Kate Vernon, and Bill Duke.”


See! It looks like it just might be awesome. Maybe. Possibly. The werewolves aren’t regular wolves, which I know you love, so that gets it some points. There appears to be a scene involving a werewolf jumping on top of a helicopter, that seems rad… unless the werewolf lands on the blades and gets chopped to bits, which is probably what would happen.

But enough about what I think. What do you think of Battledogs? Have you seen it, if so, what did you think? Have you even heard of it or were you in the dark like me?

  1. This is on my “to watch list”. Werewolves are enough to get my attention, but I’m familiar with most if not all of the actors in the trailer so that’s another motivator for me to give it a shot. Of course you really had me at the film reminding you of Dog World. Thank you for remembering me, Moonlight. By the way, I’m working on revisions to the sequel, Dog World: Gone to Hell. I should be finished by this. Would you be interested in a copy?

    1. I haven’t watched it yet, the trailer reminded me of Dog World.
      And I would love a copy, although, I am back in school and I may not have the time to read it :(

      1. I meant to say it should be out this summer. Regardless of whether you get the time to read it or not, I want to send you one. :-) You gave me the first and the best praise DW could possibly get. I hope you enjoy the sequel just as much.

  2. Really really bad and I gave it 2 chances not impressed at all with these horrible CGI werewolves they are just as bad if not worse than American Werewolf in Paris. That goes for the story too. This coming from one of the biggest werewolf fans out there.

    1. Well that sucks. If you say it sucks, Antonio, then it must be bad. Especially if you compare it to AWiL. Woof! I’m still going to give it a try. If anything it’ll be a good night waster when I run out of reading material, proofing motivation, or just have insomnia.

      1. You mean American Werewolf in Paris lol. London with The Howling set the bar for transformations.

        1. lmao I meant London (which had a solid story), but wrote Paris (which didn’t) instead. Paris could have been better, but it lacked too much to be any good. That’s my opinion at least. Thanks for setting me straight, Antonio.

      2. Hey, how soon do you think we’ll see DW: GTH on Amazon? Dog World 1 was one of the most violently fun werewolf novels ever. Just plain awesome. Not comparing the 2 content-wise, but I haven’t had this much fun with werewolves since I first saw Dog Soldiers. You seriously kicked ass with DW. Hope the second follows suit.

        1. Hey Rhio,
          Sorry I’m like two months off from replying. I’m getting DW:GTH edited now and I’m shooting for August. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was as much fun to write for me as it was for you to read. :-) Thank you and I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Looks interesting enough, I’ll check it out…I’m not opposed to CGI werewolves.

    Thanks for posting and letting us know about it!

    (I think I may be one of the rare few who actually liked AWiL…the CGI werewolf didn’t bother me. Though the story did.)

    1. I said Paris not London which is one of the top werewolf movies till this day. I hate full CGI werewolves they tend to look bad most times.

      1. Whoops – I meant AWiP.

        I’m not picky with my werewolves – I guess, because if I was, I’d be missing out on half of the werewolf movies that are out…and there aren’t that many to begin with.

  4. I will watch just about any werewolf movie being one of the biggest werewolf fans out there but that doesn’t mean all of them are worthy to be called good. I just prefer my good looking PFX werewolves over CGI ones.

  5. So, I just saw this movie. And it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I’ve seen a LOT worse.

    Sure, the CGI wasn’t the best, and neither was the acting. But I hadn’t seen a movie with that storyline before, so there’s a plus right there (even if it was riddled with plot holes). And it had some practical special effects, too.
    And, really…what do you expect for a low-budget TV movie?

    1. You got that right. Rarely, Scifi (wth IS “syfy”…some sort of std?) gets it sorta right and makes something better than the unwatchable crap they usually churn out. This is the first decent move they made since “Webs”, a 10-year-old movie about electrical workers ending up in a parallel New York controlled by a monstrous spider-queen and her human-turned-spiderfreak drones.
