Storyline

When the bad boy John inherits an isolated house in an island, he invites his brother and student of veterinary Matt and his girlfriend Nikki together with their common friends Sara and Noah to fly with him in his hydroplane and spend a couple of days having good time in the place. Later Sara is attacked by a dog and they recall that in the other side of the island there was a facility for training dogs that had been shutdown to avoid a rabies outbreak. While walking through the woods, they find a man called Luke, who sailed with his girlfriend Jenny to the island, covered of blood and Luke is killed by a pack of hounds. The group runs to the house and the animals put the place under siege, and they try to find a means of escape. When the survivors reach the compound, they disclose that the dogs have been genetically redesigned to become a breed of killers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

It's like a tin of dog food.

Once opened it stinks!

A bunch of young thrill seekers hit an uninhabited island for a week of frivolity and loving of the land. Two of the guys had an uncle who lived there, but he died, so the island is there's to abuse and use in any way they see fit. Only there's some growling dogs roaming the island, and they aren't the petting kind.

Awash with clichés, contrivances and generic genre tropes, The Breed is the definition of a horror picture made purely for monetary gain. There is no care or concern for the viewers, the makers insulting our intelligence on a regular basis.

The actors are way too old to be playing the student characters, the characters each have a trait that will be integral to the story (yawn), and some of the dialogue is cringe worthy in the extreme. By the time a key character gets and arrow through the leg - only to turn into Olga Korbut five minutes later - you may want to unscrew your head and punt your brain up field.

The dogs, however, are awesome and just about make this doggie dinner watchable. All things considered, you would be better off renting Wilderness (2006), made for a quarter of the budget than that for The Breed but considerably better wholesale. 4/10
