Anyone who’s read Watership Down knows that Richard Adams didn’t exactly write children’s books, talking animals notwithstanding. That’s just as evident in his not-quite-as-famous The Plague Dogs, which was made into a disturbing animated movie in 1982. Cinefamily is screening a rare 35mm print once a night for the next three days, with the first showing tonight at 8. Two dogs escape from a government research station in England and subsequently are hunted for fear they could be carrying the plague; suffice to say that the results will traumatize any children in attendance.
