A Halloween Puppy (2012)

aka Magic Puppy / The Great Halloween Puppy Adventure

When you’re greeted with 3 minutes of the most on-the-nose Windows Movie Maker credits known to man—and sent off with 8 comprised of re-used clips—in an issuance that’s only 77 minutes to begin with, you know you’re in for a treat. If you’ve seen A Talking Cat!?!, you’ll know what to expect, as this is basically a prequel. Everything is here, from the house, to the excessive b-roll footage of water, to the day-for-night shots. Dollar Store Halloween decorations are used for the transitions, people! You know who’s great to bring along on your romantic getaway with your boyfriend? Your son! I especially like how Cindy Brady claims that virtually no one can help with this cockamamy Eric Roberts-as-a-dog situation, but then does just that seconds later.

If you want to hear him say goofy shit, I guess…no. Don’t Don’t.

I saw this on DVD in a goth/horror movie store in Hollywood the other day, along with all the other talking animal/Eric Roberts-esque films.

Thankfully they didn't have A Talking Cat?!? otherwise I would have had to bought it.

I feel like I'd have to buy this one if I saw it in person, too :erm:

Never underestimate the staggering drawing power of Eric Roberts :gonk:
