"Online feline follies leave you catatonic? You’ll go barking mad for our off-the-leash summer cinema. Just in time for the dog days, this year’s Camp is dressed to the K-9s and has a license to kill. As terrifying as they are ridiculous—and rabid enough to give Old Yeller pause—these beastly tales could make Cesar Millan’s hair stand on end. Leave the kids at home with Snoopy, Benji, and all those other milquetoast mutts, and join the big dogs for a “groan-up” fright night. Before each screening, Camp counselor and film scholar Dr. David Wilt takes the deranged dog genre for a walk, making sense of all the blood-cur-dling mayhem." Remaining films in the series below.
