    Another Black Friday title announced from Severin Films.

    THE DOGS (1979)

    Five years after his SHOCK TREATMENT stunned European audiences, cult fantastique writer/director Alain Jessua delivered this startling thriller that remains the most controversial and prescient film of his career: In a corporate suburb outside Paris, the community’s new doctor discovers its leading citizens all get their dogs from a wealthy, charismatic trainer (an unsettling performance by Oscar® nominee Gérard Depardieu) – dogs that have a ferocious appetite for immigrants, rowdy youths, people of color and anyone who challenges the status quo. Victor Lanoux (COUSIN, COUSINE), Nicole Calfan (THE BURGLARS) and Fanny Ardant (CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS) co-star in “one of the most unexpected and original French films of the ‘70s” (, now scanned in 2K from the interpositive for the first time in America.

    I can't really stand Gerard D. in anything, unfortunately. So while this is probably a great film I will continue to

    Keep the Dogs Away.

        Was this ordered by C. Montgomery Burns?

          Sounds like Samuel Fuller's White Dog.
