One thought on “John Schneider’s SMOTHERED ”Lets the Dogs Out””

  1. JOHN SCHNEIDER’s SMOTHERED is a very funny film with touches of horror here and there. Mostly, you want to see the stars of the film who are iconic horror stars in their own right. They all have their personalities and as a viewer, you keep wondering what it’s all about and how they relate to one another. Each scene has a flavor all its own and looking around the audience, I noticed people laughing in all the right places and making sounds of disbelief during a moment of shock. It’s a very different kind of movie that doesn’t play on the old motif of “pretty blonde girl gets killed by the wicked monster.” No, it’s a turn around delightfully and skillfully written and directed by JOHN SCHNEIDER. Thanks.
