A post-apocalyptic tale based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. A boy communicates telepathically with his dog as they scavenge for food and sex, and they stumble into an underground society where the old society is preserved. The daughter of one of the leaders of the community seduces and lures him below, where the citizens have become unable to reproduce because of being underground so long. They use him for impregnation purposes, and then plan to be rid of him. Written by Ed Sutton {}

Running Time: 91 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: R


In the year 2024, after WWIV has decimated much of the Earth, Vic (Don Johnson) is a scavenger who travels the wastelands with his dog, Blood (voice of Tim McIntire), who has psychic abilities and telepathically communicates with him. The two are on a constant lookout for food, though Blood frequently voices his annoyance at Vic's immature behavior and preference for seeking women. At a primitive movie show, Blood senses the presence of a female nearby, leading Vic to discover Quilla June (Susanne Benton) in an underground bunker. Before he can satisfy his desires, however, Blood senses an unfriendly pack of looters approaching, and he and Vic fend the intruders off. Strange, deadly beings called "screamers" then arrive, and the three are forced to hide out. Vic and Quilla June make love, to Blood's great disapproval, and she tries to entice him to go with her "Downunder," where society still exists.

Quilla June ultimately knocks Vic out and disappears, and Vic insists on following her Down under, despite Blood's warnings and pleas. Once he arrives in a strange re-creation of small-town civilization, Vic is brought before the Committee, headed by Mr. Craddock (Jason Robards), Meg (Helene Winston), and Dr. Moore (Alvy Moore);Quilla June is an agent of theirs, hired to lure Vic Down under. The Committee is looking for a healthy specimen to impregnate Down under's women, and though Vic is at first enthusiastic about the idea, he soon discovers he is to be killed once his immediate services are finished, and escapes with Quilla June's help. She wants him to aid her and some other rebels against the Committee, but when her friends are killed, she joins Vic in returning topside. There he discovers Blood nearly dead of starvation;Quilla June insists that they leave him, but instead she winds up a meal for Blood, who then sets out with Vic into the wastelands again.

Author Ellison has gone on record stating that A BOY AND HIS DOG is one of the best and most faithful adaptations of his work to hit the screen, and as scripted and directed by L.Q. Jones, the movie's ironically humorous tone sets it apart from a large percentage of filmed science fiction. Instead of using its vision of a ravaged future in the service of life-and-death drama or as a cautionary tale, A BOY AND HIS DOG tells its story with bent humor, presenting an unlikely pair of friends who, despite their frequent arguments and individual unappealing qualities, are redeemed by their committed friendship and engaging characterizations.

Vic may have little but sex on the brain, but Johnson's performance makes it clear there are still remnants of a decent person somewhere within. Similarly, Blood's haughty personality is balanced with a quirky humanity, and McIntire voices the dog's lines with bone-dry perfection. (The remarkable performance of Tiger, the canine actor previously seen on TV's "The Brady Bunch," adds significantly to the effect.) These two characters care about each other quite a lot to the exclusion of anyone else.


Don Johnson plays a young man in a post nuclear war world who has an interesting friend, a telepathic dog. The dog gives him an advantage in dealing with the barbaric world he lives in. When Johnson finds one place that has escaped the devastation of the war, he also finds some rather odd attitudes. Written by John Vogel {}

The setting of this film is not only a material wasteland, but a moral one as well. Our protaganists are a wandering teenage misogynist and his super-intelligent telepathic dog. The latter helps the former to locate potential rape victims. Their pursuit of one particular sexual quarry leads the young man on a journey into a subterranean perversion of smalltown America. The dog is the most sympathetic character in the movie, and is brilliantly voiced by Tim McIntire. If you are able to wrap your head around the bizarre moral construct, this film is a nihilistic hoot.
