The Breed (2006)

"Bad"

The Breed (2006) Review


The cover has a picture of two snarling dogs and a girl in a bikini, facing off with them on all fours. Looks like a tasty werewolf movie... but no, The Breedi is Cujo 2: Electric Bugaloo. At best. A gaggle of twentysomethings take a trip to a cabin in the woods and are beset upon by some exceptionally rabid, aggressive mutts (later revealed to be genetic experiments), and they quickly find themselves being feasted upon... when they aren't busy accidentally maiming themselves severely. Headliner Michelle Rodriguez proves here that her acting ability is actually getting worse as time wears on, and Taryn Manning is grating (as usual) from frame one. The script is about as absurd as they come, stuffed to the breaking point with "We gotta stay together." cliches and warmed-over action sequences pilfered from every horror movie under the sun.

The DVD includes a making-of featurette.
