ROTTWEILER

ANIMATRONICS | PUPPETRY

In the near future, a prisoner named Dante (William Miller) escapes from jail after having been arrested for illegally entering Spain. Forced to kill a prison guard, he is hunted down by the prison's dog, a monstrous, Rottweiler police dog that sadistic prison warden Kufard, played by Spanish horror icon, Paul Naschy.

CCFx founder, Paul Pistore built animatronics for this near-future sci fi horror film. Directed by the legendary Brian Yuzna, the movie was very loosely based on Alberto Vázquez Figueroa's book "El Perro", 

As Lead Puppeteer on the film, his animatronic Rottweiler(s) killed 5 people, 2 dogs and a chicken (on-screen of course) in a terrifying canine bloodbath.
