During a routine training mission in the Scottish Highlands, a small squad of happy-go-lucky British soldiers, including Cooper (Kevin McKidd – Trainspotting), led by Sergeant Wells (Sean Pertwee – Event Horizon, Gotham), plan to join a Special Operations unit… but when they arrive all they find is bloody remains – and only one survivor, C.O. Ryan (Liam Cunningham – Hunger, Game of Thrones).
When the vicious perpetrators return, the group find themselves in mortal danger, but a mysterious zoologist, (Emma Cleasby – Doomsday, Lewis) miraculously saves them. Taking shelter in an abandoned farmhouse, with no means of escape, it’s only a matter of time before the attackers return…
When night falls and the full moon appears, carnage descends, and it’s werewolves versus soldiers in a battle for survival, as they face the unflinching terror of the Dog Soldiers. This unapologetically brutal and darkly funny horror will drive you barking mad with demented delight.
