30 years after the "Golden Turkey Awards," I'm reviewing as many films described (by anybody)as so-bad-it's-good as possible.

Atomic Dog (1998)
How bad is it? It doesn't know what it wants to be and fails at everything. Should you see it? No, though it's almost so bad it's funny.
Brian Trenchard-Smith has directed a lot of junk, some of which I've reviewed. This time around, he tries for a family friendly "Cujo!" A family finds that two of their puppies are the spawn of an irradiated dog that now has superpowers and super-intelligence and wants them back. It turns out that it's for the family's good, though, as one of the pups is violent and the parent's trying to save them. There's a weird almost E.T.-like twist at the end. It's too nasty for little kids, who it appears is the intended audience, and just too stupid for anyone else.
