"Yeah, this is a story of a famous dog
For the dog that chases its tail will be dizzy
These are clapping dogs, rhythmic dogs
Harmonic dogs, house dogs, street dogs
Dog of the world unite
Countin' dogs, funky dogs
~~ George Clinton - ATOMIC DOG (1982)
Vote for your favorite Dog in a horror flick please.

While Cujo surely will be the standout pick, I think that the best dog I have ever seen on screen was the "Alien Dog" from The Thing. Those tracking shots throughout the Antartic Station are chilling, and the timing in which the dog snarls for the camera is celluloid greatness.
My next pick would be that freaky dog in The Omen. A notable exclude is "Muffin" from Friday the 13th, Part 2. I mean the dog has a chapter stop named after her on the DVD for crying out loud! :D

i went with the Zombie Dogs from resident evil
im not a huge fan of animals in horror movies unless they are being eaten by cannibals

Okay, this is really hard, because I really love dogs to the extreme! Thats why I love it when they are killers in horror films, because that combines two things that I truly love. I voted for Cujo though, because look at my screen name :) , and he was one vicious bastard. I love every dog listed on the above poll though, and its too bad I couldn't vote for all of them!
By the way Hellbilly, the German Shepard in THE HILLS HAVE EYES is named Beast. I'm guessing he's the one you meant, because he plays the biggest part in the film, but if you meant the girl one, her name is Beauty. :)

I couldn't remember all the names Cujo, thanks. I'm sure that dog in THE OMEN also had a name?!
"Muffin" in F13part 2, how could I forget? :D

I went for Einstein from Watchers. The dog didnt do much except work with Corey Haim and that right there deserves a pity vote.

It was a toss-up between Cujo and the wolf-dog from The Thing, but I had to hand it to The Thing simply because it was such a great actor. :)
09-17-2002, 10:17 AM
Cujo is my fave though I like the dog in The Beyond too! :D Scooby Doo on the outtakes disk in Jay And Silent Bob Strikes Back was great one too. ;)

Alien dog from The Thing ruled. That was one of the first special effects that really made me love them like I do today.

I hate dogs

BUMP for Devil Dog - DEVIL DOG: THE HOUND FROM HELL.
09-04-2005, 02:00 AM
I vote for Jason, the dog who pisses fire in Nightmare on Elm Street part 4.
09-04-2005, 02:05 AM
I voted other.
My choice was Crack Dog from the short film of the same name.
Crack smoking dogs are funny.

Nanook from Lost Boys
Close 2nd is the Alien dog from The Thing
09-04-2005, 06:26 AM
Since The Thing is one of my favorite horror movies of all time, I went with "Alien dog" . Special nod to Thor from Bad Moon, as he's just cool and was a noble protector of his family.
09-04-2005, 07:00 AM
More of a cat person. I picked Cujo.
09-04-2005, 08:39 AM
Jed, from John Carpenter's The Thing..easily the coolest dog, both literally and figuratively.
Special mention goes to Misty, who played the Beggar's Boxer Dog in the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
NOTE: I understand that billy has received many inflammatory private messages since the posting of this poll, due to the exclusion of COW DOG as an entrant. As billy explained to me in a meeting conducted to revise this poll before going public, COW DOG was considered to be more of a canine hero in the science fiction/fantasy realm, rather than the horror genre. As I'm sure billy would tell you, he is sorry to have offended so many by the exclusion, but wants forum members and COW DOG fans to understand that there was much deliberation before the final decision was made. :(

bwana the clown
09-04-2005, 08:57 AM
Other: Dickie from The Beyond :D
09-04-2005, 12:59 PM
THE HILLS HAVE EYES. He was cool because he did a good job protecting his owners, and even wrote off a bad guy. That's one cool dog :)

Well, for a while..... :)
09-04-2005, 03:55 PM
1. Nanook from Lost Boys
2. Res Evil zombie dogs
3. Hills Have Eyes Dog
...I still haven't seen Cujo. Maybe I'll go and rent it today. I noticed they actually have it at my local video shop!!!
09-04-2005, 04:11 PM
I have to say that the mutant poodle from The Boneyard was pretty friggin' sweet, but that damn distorted multi-headed dog from one of the NOES sequels was cool as hell too. Hmm, I'll have to go with that alien dog from The Thing though for sure!
09-04-2005, 04:19 PM
beast rules in hills have eyes also has the best scene in hills have eyes part 2 where he has a flashback memory from part 1

Devil Dog: The Hound from Hell.
08-02-2007, 04:31 AM
CUJO leads the pack,though I have a fondness for "Dicky",the guide dog with a taste for Italian(s) in THE BEYOND."Kill them,Dicky,kill them !!!"
