The sights and sounds of Moose Jaw are making their way around the world.
Vampire Dog, a movie filmed in Moose Jaw last summer, was just released on Sept. 25 and is now available for mass consumption worldwide.
The Vampire Dog DVD is now gracing the shelves at WalMarts everywhere. It can also be viewed online via Netflix or downloaded from the iTunes store for $12.99 ($5.99 to rent). According to one of the movie’s producers, Shayne Putzlocher of Trilight Entertainment, distribution rights for the film were pre-bought in places like Latin America, North America and even the Middle East before the film was even complete.
“Vampire Dog was probably one of our smoothest movies production-wise,” says Putzlocher of the film shot in the Friendly City.
“It was great. We used the house, which was a really good location. We shot at the humane society, which was really good for the look of the film. We used (Crescent) park too while we were in Moose Jaw, which was nice.”
There was also a lot of local Moose Javian talent in the film as well. “There was defiantly extras every day when we were in Moose Jaw. There were a lot of extras in the park.”
Vampire Dog is a story about a boy who receives a pet dog from his grandfather, only to discover that the dog is a vampire that thirsts for red jelly and pomegranate juice. The voice of Fang the Vampire Dog was played by none other than Norm Macdonald.
“We were done shooting and we knew we had to find a good voice to play Fang, so we got Norm Macdonald to do it,” says Putzlocher.
