A MOBS Holiday Tradition: A Boy and His Dog

Follow-up your Thanksgiving with this 1975 indie classic based on Harlan Ellison's novella!

We've shown this annually as our Thanksgiving movie, but not knowing how many folks would come out due to it being so close to that holiday. And attendance last year was good enough to do it *yet* again! However, this year it's a full week after Thanksgiving, so it should be even easier for you to come to it!

The year is 2024. World War IV, which only lasted 5 minutes, has long been over, leaving behind a postapocalyptic wasteland. 18-year old Vic (Don Johnson in his first, and by far best, performance) wanders with his dog, Blood (who previously starred as the dog on The Brady Bunch), who communicates with him telepathically. The none-too-bright Vic scavenges for food; the rather learned and sarcastically witty Blood sniffs out women for sex. Into this relationship comes Quilla, a woman from "Down Under" - a supposedly idyllic underground society which attempts to preserve the past. Quilla lures Vic "Down Under" where he discovers that there are some rather nefarious plans for him.

This was a direct influence on films such as "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior." If you know the ending, you can probably figure out why here at MOBS sort of see it as a Thanksgiving movie...

Oh, and this ain't necessarily one for the kids.
