Trivia

As with the Wes Craven movie The Hills Have Eyes (1977) this movie is also based on the legend of Sawney Beane and his family (a wife, eight sons and six daughters), a feral clan said to have inhabited and roamed the coast of Galloway, in the 15th or 16th century. They were eventually captured on the order of Scotland's King James, were judged to be insane, and executed without trial. There is still debate over whether the Beans existed or not. See more »

Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain (2003)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Direct to DVD horror film about several college students traveling to Ireland where they plan on studying Druids but they end up running into the creatures who want to eat them. This film had an interesting build up and it starts out okay but things slowly fall apart from there. This is one of those movies that keeps you interested because you want to see what all unfolds but when things finally unfold it really wasn't worth your time. Another problem is that the director gives us over forty-minutes worth of dead space where nothing happens. The cast is mostly forgettable and that includes Jenna Jameson in a small cameo, although she is kind enough to show her boobs. There's some decent gore and a lot of talk regarding other horror movies but this only goes so far. There's also a scene in the movie where the kids are watching a horror movie, which is clearly meant to be Halloween since the music, killer and characters are all the same so I'm shocked the filmmakers didn't get sued here.
