Burbank, CA, January 04, 2011 --( Visionary Cinema Publicity Presents: "Monster Mutt" on DVD

Appealing both to grade school children and 40-somethings who grew up with films including Steven Spielberg’s E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Monster Mutt concerns Max, the Taylor family mutt, leading idyllic the dog’s life at home. He has a doting master named Ashley (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn), a comfortable doghouse in the back yard, and a satisfying routine.

By happenstance, Max becomes injected with Dr. Lloyd’s formula and turns into “Monster Mutt” and many adventures ensue where Max will meet an antagonistic human mutant, a kindly veterinarian, and the vet’s own dog, the lovely Lady. Plus, will Ashley find the antidote in time to save her beloved pooch?
