As with the Wes Craven film The Hills Have Eyes (1977), this movie is 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, Scotland, murdering and often eating travelers and isolated residents, in the 15th or 16th century. They were eventually captured by troops of Scotland's King James, judged to be insane and executed without trial (one story says that soldiers tied them to stakes, burned them alive, then scattered their ashes in a nearby cave and sealed the entrance to the cave with huge, heavy boulders). There is still debate over whether the Beanes actually existed. See more »

In the intro, a couple frolicking in a tent at nights hears a noise. So they do what movie characters always do, stop doing what they're doing and go outside and find out what the noise is. When the guy gets back the girl is gone. Later he finds her, or rather half of her. He then wakes up in a cave, shackled and bound next to knives and body parts. He frees himself but something catches him again.
We then meet a bunch of college kids on a class trip in Ireland. The teacher and her boyfriend are also there. When they get to a house they are warned repeatedly by the strange locals to not wander in the woods but stay on the path. These kids aren't particularly likable, there's the horror movie buff who bullies the nice girl constantly, a couple who can't keep their hands off each other, and some other girl. Of course they do wander off course and find some ruins where the creature lives. Meanwhile the creature starts killing them one buy one in some very gory ways, especially if you see the extended scenes in the bonus features.
The innocent girl also ends up in the ruin/cave and finds out what the creature/creatures are all about.
You can definitely tell that something went very wrong in the production of Evil Breed. Acting by the kids is atrocious. The movie is rather short and the filmmakers had a hard time telling the story right, that is if the script was any good to begin with. In the comments on IMDb, the director apologizes for the resulting mess saying that he didn't have a whole lot of control over the project. Despite the problems, the resulting product is somewhat likable. There's plenty of very good gore, some nudity, and you do get a sense of what this movie could have been had things gone well.
