This might be a long shot with how little I remember of the movie. I only remember one scene, where a small dog flies through a window knocking a man out. Then it shows the man laying there while the camera pans away to show a dog staring at him menacingly. The movie either had to do with a spirit, parasite, or alien that could take over animals' bodies

  • Is it a horror or a comedy? Sounds hilarious! – Daft Jun 26 '15 at 9:12

    Sounds a little bit like "The Thing" ? – Stark07 Jun 26 '15 at 9:42
  • @Stark07 the infected huskies never actually do anything in The Thing once they get infected. They don't attack anyone or jump through any windows. And you definitely wouldn't call them small. – Daft Jun 26 '15 at 10:08
  • Hmmm... Yeah true... Dunno that was the first thing that came to my mind :P – Stark07 Jun 26 '15 at 10:08

Possibly Suspiria directed by the great Dario Argento, containing this scene with a seeing-eye dog attacking and killing its master. Suspiria is about a dance school which is a front of a coven of witches.

Warning: this is a horror movie and the video below is meant to be scary and possibly NSFW as a result.


Baxter maybe?

"The title character is a murderous white Bull Terrier who tells the story of his search for a proper master in voice-over narration."


Could it be "Vampire Dog"? It has a small dog. The dog moves fast enough to appear to be flying. He knocks a guy over into a vat of jello. It's eyes are creepy.


This is a long shot, but maybe you're thinking of Night of the Creeps (1986).

Plot Summary

The details which fit:

  • Alien parasites which can take over bodies (both human and animal)
  • There's a creepy parasite-infected dog which is pivotal to the movie

The details which don't fit:

  • I don't believe the dog ever flies through a window. It does cause a bus crash and it does look menacingly at a couple of people.

The dog


Wasn't a dog infected by the parasite in The Hidden (1987)? Not sure about the flying through the window part, but the rest fits.
