Directed in 1976 by Spanish filmmaker Antonio Isasi, The Fangs of the Devil precedes better-known canine works such as Trained to Kill (Samuel Fuller, 1982) or Cujo, adapted from Stephen King's novel by Lewis Teague in 1983. Fierce and determined, the dog of this survival nephew crystallizes the barbarism and all the madness of the Franco regime.
