review by
Mike Haberfelner

Brothers Treacy (Daniel Timothy Treacy) and Noah (Brian Sutherland) want to spend a weekend in their parents' cabin in the country for old time's sake - and to bury their dog. But then they find a dead body in the hot tub and a girl, Emily (Meagan Karimi-Naser) having taken up one of their rooms. Turns out she's a bit of a serial killer - which isn't too bad, as they are something like serial killers themselves, and even though Emily gets on their nerves at first, they decide to let her stay as long as she promised to not try to kill them - and they promise the same in return. Of course, not killing does not go for other people, which they either bury in their vast garden or leave at their favourite bar where the barkeeper takes care of the bodies - whatever "taking care" means, really. But between all the killings, the two brothers start to work through issues, as Noah learns from his wife (Evelyn Gail) that she's pregnant over the phone, and Treacy, who's emotionally somewhat deprived, shows hints of jealousy, and Emily proves to be a catalyst for all their feelings. But in between killing and soul-baring, it seems to be only a question of time before somebody snaps ...

Mark Patton plays Treacy and Noah's loving but distant uncle.


It's rather safe to say that you probably have never seen something like 1 Dead Dog as it light-footedly crosses psychological drama with serial killer movie with dark comedy, and does so in a way that at pretty much all times the unexpected happens, and yet the film never just goes over the top but sticks with its three main characters who might be weird as can be but also very consistent in their actions and reactions and are allowed to grow. And while the actors seem to clearly be in on the joke, their performances are straight and very down-to-earth, while the direction gives them enough time to breath - making this a very unusual genre trip.
