An Abuser Gets His
3 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is one of those stories where the bad guy is so bad and so cruel that we wait to see him get nailed. A man abuses his wife. He strikes her for any reason and she feels defenseless. One day her sister spends a black ceramic dog. She treasures it. There is a scene where he makes her wait to open her own birthday present. What the jerk doesn't know is that this little dog can transform itself into an array of vicious, deadly dogs. These dogs serve on purpose. To make sure no more cruelty is directed toward this woman. There are some great scenes of revenge.
