Dying Breed interweaves the two most fascinating icons of Tasmanian history: the extinct Tasmanian tiger and "The Pieman" (aka Alexander Pearce) who was hanged for cannibalism in 1824. Against all odds, Pearce escaped from the most feared penal settlement of the British Empire - Sarah Island - and disappeared into the impenetrable forests of Western Tasmania. Seven convicts escaped with him, yet Pearce was the only one that emerged... along with chunks of human flesh in his pockets. The legend of Pearce was born. An extinct species... a long forgotten legend... both had a desperate need to survive; both could now have living descendants within the Tasmanian bush. Many sightings of the tiger have been reported. Many hikers have gone missing. Hundreds in fact. Zoologist Nina is convinced there are still tigers remaining in the Tasmanian wilderness, and she has proof - a photograph of a paw print snapped by her sister just before she met with a fatal accident in the bush eight years ...

While leaving the Water Rat Hotel at the start of the movie, a tram can be seen in the background and then disappears as the scene has been cut. Also this is supposed to be in Tasmania, they do not have Trams, this would of been filmed in Melbourne. See more »

First Wolf Creek than Storm Warning now Dying Breed
LOVED IT!!!!!!! Australia/England/New Zealand are learning from their euro/Asian counterparts how to make horror these days. This film is downright terror. We have the usual ingredients on board like strangers going into an inbred local bar/ meet weirdos/ violence ensues and the calamity begins. This film sort of incorporates backwoods/torture porn/cabin fever style horror and blends it all in and explodes out with its own kind of identity. Not as good as Wolf Creek and Storm Warning but just as alarming. For all of those who enjoyed The Hills have Eyes and the torture porn flicks, I think this one will stick with you long after the credits roll.
