Editorial Reviews

On their quest to find a rare tiger, four hikers venture deep into isolated territory of Tasmania and into the small township of "Sarah. Nestled within the impenetrable forests of Western Tasmania, "Sarah" was the hideout of the infamous cannibal nicknamed "The Pieman in the 1800s. The township lives on passionately upholding its heritage in honour of the convict patriarch that gave birth to it. It needs to stay hidden to survive...but it also needs fresh "stock" to breed.

I always laugh when a horror movie begins and ends with facts to read. Even if the filmmakers are alluding to actual events, do they honestly expect that the plot itself is deserving of a history lesson? At the start of "Dying Breed," we learn about Alexander Pearce, an Irish convict who in 1822 escaped from a penal colony on the Australian island of Tasmania; in 1824, he was caught, tried, and hanged for murder and cannibalism. In the film, he's given the nickname The Pieman, although we now know that this is actually a reference to pastry chef Thomas Kent, another Tasmanian inmate who also escaped imprisonment in 1822. I can understand why writers Michael Boughen, Jody Dwyer, and Rod Morris gave that name to Pearce--students of "Sweeney Todd" know that cannibalism is a lot more fun when it's coupled with the skill and artistry of a baker.

This movie also tells us about the Tasmanian Tiger, a carnivorous marsupial that was once common throughout Australia and Papua New Guinea. As of today, some believe early European settlers hunted this animal to extinction, the last one dying in captivity in 1936. Others believe that a select few survived and continue to exist in isolated groups within the bushland of Tasmania. Sightings have been reported, although there's no actual proof of anything. There is, however, the ominous fact that many hikers have gone into Tasmania, never to be seen or heard from again.

What exactly do these two bits of information have to do with one another? "Dying Breed" attempts to make a connection, although it's weak, probably because there's no chemistry between them. Yes, there is that fact that both are part of the fabric of Australian legend.

I love travelogue horror movies, especially those filmed deep in the world's wildernesses: Welcome to the Jungle, Cannibals Ferox and Holocaust, and now Dying Breed, which takes a piece of badass folklore (the continued disappearance of people ever since, centuries ago, the cannibal Alexander "Pieman" Pearce escaped from prison on the remote island of Tasmania. For the most part, this follows the patterns of your classic slasher. In fact, having just watched Cabin in the Woods, I was amused at how much the first movie predicted the second one. All in all a very strong horror movie.

Just one gripe: the image they're marketing the movie with, its Amazon icon...an eyeball in some sort of metal basin/martini glass? Nothing to do with the film. Nothing like it in the film. I watch a lot of movies on Amazon Instant Vid and its nice if they advertise themselves for what they are. Still, good film.

Standard horror movies: everything's great, something spooky happens, something spookier happens, someone gets raped, murdered, mutilated, eaten, bludgeoned, cut apart, and oh my 5 more people to go! Did I miss the inbreeding? So sorry. Alexander "The Pieman" existed and so did the Tasmanian Tiger. I liked the fact that they stuck those two historical facts together although the main cannibal guy picking everyone off wasn't as great as I'd thought he'd be, I was hoping he'd pull out a banjo at some point and wow us with a jig at one point or another. The kid was creepy as well as the town cast (the main cast was good as well) and I found another movie that I can add to my collection of movies that will keep me from camping forever. If you're looking for an all out gore slasher where the only plot line is body parts everywhere with some guy running around trying to wear someones face, this isn't it. But if you like movies where you walk away still knowing why some things/people/places are better left alone, this is a good choice.

There are rumors that the Tasmanian Tiger has been sighted on the Australian island of Tasmania. Nina, an Irish zoologist, believes that the mysterious tiger still exist. Her sister had came to the island looking for it. She had sent Nina a picture shortly before going missing. That was eight years ago and Nina and her group of friends go to the island to find the tiger, but then end up finding a group of cannibals.

The first thirty minutes of the movie has slow pacing and I almost fell asleep because of it. Things start to get interesting when the Nina spots something outside in the bushes, then the blood and gore starts. Dying Breed reminds of the Wrong Turn movies, but only set in Australia. The acting is decent, but the plot is somewhat cliched. It's not the best horror movie, but it is better than some.

This review is for Dying Breed NOT the entire horrorfest as i've seen below...Dying Breed was very creepy and very gory! Picture Deliverance but with blood thirsty psycho cannibals! Nathan Phillips of Wolf Creek and the Main Girl were both very good. They set out on a trip where the main Girl's Sister had previously died searching for an animal thought to be extinct...Things go very bad from there. The whole scenery was excellent and rain and such made this more scary in my opinion. Hunted and terrified they try to get back to civilization but at there every turn...Will they make it? I thought this was well made not as a horrorfest film but in general. This is a creepy thriller! Thanks for reading :)
