I've been waiting since late 2003 to see this film which was then known as Samhain. What originally caught my attention was the likes of Jenna Jameson, Chasey Lain, Ginger Lynn Allen, and Taylor Hayes making appearances as what I thought at the time, were leading roles. A few years and a title change later and I have just this moment finished watching it. I've never bothered to write a review before but feel it is my duty to warn others that may be duped into buying this for the same reasons I did.

Jenna Jameson is on screen in total for less than a minute and has about 4 short lines of dialogue and yet she appears all over the front and back covers of the dvd case.
Chasey Lain is in the film slightly longer at the very beginning with Richard Grieco (Billed on the front cover as a major star) as campers who are quickly disposed of in the opening 5 minutes. Taylor Hayes makes a short appearance towards the end of the film as one of the cannibals hostages used for breeding. Having been held for possibly over a year, she looks quite good and clean despite being chained up in a cave.
Ginger Lynn Allen appears as the sister of the cottage caretaker. Her acting ability isn't too bad but as another reviewer pointed out, her Irish accent quickly diminuishes as the film progresses. The Irish caretaker Gary appears as the typical local looney who warns the tourists of the perilous dangers that await them and is even said to be clairvoyant, yet ironically, can't forsee is own miserable death which I couldn't help but think was something out of a Troma film. He has got to be one of the worst actors I have ever seen, and his accent is not so much laughable as it is sad and pathetic.

Basic slasher film that doesn't even rate one star.But I do give it one star for the 2 uncut scenes added to the disc.The one with porn queen Jenna's inplants being so durable that the guy no matter how hard he tried to chew on them couldn't make them leak.The second scene of the anal probe with the knife was a prime biological example that the human body has one hell of a long intestine. That guy's intestines even flatulated during the removal process.Although extremely gory ya cant help but laugh at this whole globby mess.Im still in the dark what the ending was about it made no sense at all.But I guess chewey implants, farting bowel removals and bouncing breasts was what the whole plot line of this film anyway.

Let me tell you some of what you will get with this flick:

1.Ginger Lynn Allen doing a VERY bad Irish accent which gets thinner as the movie goes along.

2.The first half is a bore with bad "Scream" inspired dialogue. The second half is pure silliness.

3.Porn queen Jenna Jameson is in the movie for about 3 minutes. So is Chasey Lain.

4.Jameson's death scene is hysterical. First, the look on her face when she gets cut open. Then, when the creature begins pulling out her organs, he begins to chomp down on, of all things, her BREAST IMPLANTS!!!!!!

5.More boring teens, except for a cute, naked blonde.

6.The final scene, which makes absolutely ZERO sense.

But there are a few good moments. The story of Samhain and the Druids rituals that created Halloween. The uncensored, bonus scenes (one of which is the aforementioned Jameson death scene.) The other scene sees a guy getting his intestines pulled out through his rear end!!! They are both gory and hilarious.

Yes indeed, this one is something to see. (The second half anyway.)

This film is pretty much like every other camping-trip-ruined-by-inbred-cannibals movie you've ever seen - except Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain does it with aging pornstars. I have to question the filmmaker's reasoning here. Young pornstars I could understand. I don't care how hot Chasey Lain, Jenna Jameson, and Taylor Hayes were back in the day, all of the body reconstruction work is beginning to show, as are the effects of various substances they've probably injected into themselves at one point or another. Furthermore, why do I want to go through the torture of watching a horrible movie just to see a couple of them topless when a quick Google search could take me right to video clips of them getting their freak on when their implants were still new? I will grant the filmmakers a little leeway when it comes to Ginger Lynn Allen, since she has actually done a fair share of mainstream films over the years. But get this - these guys have Ginger speaking with an Irish accent. You just have to laugh at this nonsense.

Okay, getting back to the actual film. I don't know what college these folks are from, but their teacher, Karen (Bobbie Phillips), has eschewed the classroom setting in order to bring them to Ireland and show them real history. Her entire lesson plan, I must note, seems to consist solely of a few moments spent cracking jokes around a circle of rocks. Only one girl, Shae (Brandi-Ann Milbradt) is even interested in the subject; the others just want to have sex. Everyone soon goes their separate ways, get attacked by cannibals, yada yada yada. The whole thing would be excruciatingly unbearable were it not for one man, this film's one and only saving grace.
