If you were walking down the street and you encountered dog shit on the pavement, would you purposely walk through it? The answer would be no and this DVD should be avoided like dog shit on the pavement! Incidentally, there is a canine character in this animated movie but it's not a beastie you would want to meet. The messenger from hell, it takes children into a devilish world worse than Dante's Inferno.
First of all, this is a very unpleasant and disturbing movie. Watching it was difficult to say the least and there are better ways to spend ninety minute of your precious life. It is animated because the scenes could never be made by live actors: it would be immediately banned by the authorities. Disgusting and depraved are probably two words which best describe this DVD.
I don't want to talk too much about it but basically the plot is this. The three children living on the block meet up with a talking dog, a Labrador called Labby. The dog is from hell. He takes the children into a sick perverted world, going through time and dimensions to places nobody wants to go. Most sinister is the memory stealing junkie situated in a church with an evil cyclops of nightmarish proportion assist him in his ways. However, by the time I got to the bit where the dog chews off somebody's private parts, I'd had enough. Everything sick and nasty you could think about seems to be in ‘Where The Dead Go To Die’.
I don't think it's worth saying much more about this movie. Sure, if you feel you've got to watch this sort of stuff, go out and buy it but I think I've made it clear that I didn't like it and would certainly not recommended to anyone. Why this was made escapes reason and watching it will certainly make you escape from reality.
