This is an aggressive little nature runs amok horror.

Unidentified animals begin to inexplicably maul cattle near a California college town.

In no time at all, humans find they've become the target.

The attackers? The owners' own domesticated dogs.

Will local professor Harlan Thompson (McCallum) discover a solution before the problem rages out of control?

Energetic '70s canine terror, with some enjoyable highlights including a doberman's attack on Gray in the shower, as well as the dogs' mass slaughter of students at a university.

This features a surprising amount of the red stuff, a pre-Dallas Linda Gray, and a clever little climax.

Now, everybody sing along: 'How much is that doggy in the win...AAGHGHGHGhhghghghg!'

Known also simply as Dogs.
