A Boy and His Dog (1975)
A post-apocalyptic story based on Harlan Ellison’s book. A boy and his dog communicate telepathically while they wonder the wasteland for proteins and sex.

They use young and healthy boy for impregnation-reproduction.
A Boy and His Dog (1975) Review:
Vic and his telepathically talking sheep dog, Blood, travel post-apocalyptic Arizona. Besides scavenging for food and sex, this movie features old, terrible porn clips, evil Amish looking people with clown makeup and possibly the greatest pun in movie history. Blood provides hilarious commentary to all Vic’s endeavors, his comments while Vic and a girl he finds have sex are particularly entertaining. At parts, this movie gets so strange you can’t do anything but laugh at it, which is definitely not a bad thing! A Boy and His Dog is not something that will ever be universally popular, but it is a great movie for late nights and all nerds. A classic piece of science fiction. – Emma
