It’s a buddy movie, no it’s a horror movie, no it’s a comedy; actually it’s all three. Doghouse has a little something for everyone unless you don’t like gore and don’t have a slightly warped sense of humor.
The buddy part of the movie is center a group of men who decide that one of their friends needs to be cheered up after a recent divorce. Mikey (Noel Clarke) suggests they go to the town of Moodley. He grew up there and the women outnumber the men four to one. Well that suits Neil (Danny Dyer) just fine, he thinks he’s a bit of a player. Actually he’s a misogynist jerk, who for the most part who repels more women than he attracts.
They rent a tour bus and head out for the countryside to find out Moodley has changed a lot since Mikey has been there last. Most notably all the men are dead or dying and the women are all man-hating flesh eaters. Not zombies, but something more terrifying, because they move fast, use weapons, and can think.
The comedy part is how they deal with them and the monsters. They are interesting to say the least, and just put your political correctness out to play while watching this. The women are the monsters and that’s it.
Overall I loved this movie. I laughed so many times and it actually is a decent buddy movie. It’s campy and schlocky while still being decently made. Also, while necessarily gory I don’t think it goes over the top.
