Left with no other choice, the dogs resort to cannibalism and form the pack, a pack of abandon dogs out for vengeance. An old man and a kid were the first victims of these beasts. And now, a family staying in the resort must defend themselves against the pack and survive by any means possible

Attack of the killer dogs.
5 January 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

On an isolated island,a group of vacationers are trapped by a bloodthirsty pack of rabid dogs.After a fierce storm destroys communication with the island and no help coming for several days,the terrorize travelers struggle to survive the increasingly violent attacks by the ravenous canines.Very well-made and suspenseful animal attack flick with some genuinely intense dog attacks.There is truly nail-biting siege of the house and Joe Don Baker locked inside the cabin and fighting with rabid canines.The scene where Lois is attacked by the pack of dogs whilst being locked in a small Volkswagen predates Lewis Teague's "Cujo".The vacationers cruelly abandon their pets and it's time for dogs to get some bloody revenge!8 out of 10.One of the most underrated horror movies of late 70's.
