Devil Dog: The Hound Of Hell

The two kids from the original Escape From Witch Mountain star in this made-for-TV movie about an evil, telekinetic hound. For some reason, hooded acolytes decide the best way to take over the world is to give random children evil puppies, so a fruit peddler convinces the two lead children in this film they need a puppy even though they seem to not want one very much. The puppy grows into a dog, and flexes its evil powers by setting a housekeeper on fire and mind-controlling a lawn mower. I'm all for the long grift, but that seems a little excessive to me. It seems like a huge waste of time to fill a dog with the power of evil, impregnating it, handing one of these telekinetic demon dogs to a Real Housewife Of Beverly Hills, and then using it for the sole purpose of mentally coercing Richard Crenna to go skinny dipping, like, a year later. No one has time for that, and I'm not certain how a damp, nude Richard Crenna is going to accomplish anything. Last time I checked, the easiest way to corrupt today's youth wasn't with a fruit truck full of puppies, but through the power of rock-n-roll.

Or something like that.
