The Pack is a flick that could almost be added to that "Best of" Killer Animals list, if it weren't for some of its more contrived and nonsensical plot elements, many of which left something to be desired.
Still, this is a decent movie that managed to keep us mostly engaged with its intensity and suspenseful atmosphere.

Then, the dogs come.
|"WOOF." IN AUSTRALIAN DOG SPEAK, THAT TRANSLATES TO "YOU'RE DEAD, MATE."|
Creepy canine antics ensue.
|SHE'S MENTALLY TELLING SOMEONE TO RUN, INSTEAD OF OPENING THE WINDOW AND ACTUALLY TELLING THEM.|
The way that The Pack handles those all-too-familiar plot aspects though, is fantastic. It builds slow, ratchets up the tension and suspense in a natural way, and delivers some pretty exciting (and bloody) action scenes. Things are pretty intense any time the dogs are on-screen, especially when they attack.
And we really liked the way that it ended. We're suckers for cool scenes.
|WE LIKED THE CAST TOO.|
The damn poster even says "We can't hide from them." Which is apparently a lie!
This movie was decent enough to where it didn't need to resort to such cheap and easy plot devices to movie it forward.
|THIS WAS PRETTY MUCH OUR REACTION.|
We liked it for what it was, and when it finally sees release outside of Australia, it's well-worth a rental if you like Killer Animal flicks.
The Pack is available now on Blu-ray & VOD.
Anna Lise Phillips is noice.
