Plague Dogs

In the same style as Watership Down, The Plague Dogs is an animated feature film based on a novel by Richard Adams, voiced by John Hurt and produced by Martin Rosen. Two dogs escape from a British government research lab. As the authorities hunt down the canine fugitives, the two dogs search for a kind master and a place where they'll be free from the iniquities and cruelties of man. Incredibly intense and emotional for a children’s film, The Plague Dogs shook kids to the bone upon its initial release. Tidbit of info: Brad Bird worked on it as animator. Re-released in the UK last month and released in French theaters next month.
