For me this was very much Deliverance meets Wolf Creek. Awful ending (as in what happens to the people not because it was awfully done) Stuck with me well after I had watched it - creepy, disturbing and very well done. Really good Aussie movie - hope Tasmanians don't take it to heart! Remember it is only a movie!!
Yeah a very good horror/thriller movie, but like all of these movies, you need to set your mind on zero and enjoy the spectacle... the action is good, the acting very good. I have been to small towns (on the mainland) and there are some 'interesting' people there. I sat on the edge of my seat all the time, and the 'shock-scenes' where surprising and shocking enough to give you that 'creepy' feeling. Worth watching...once. And who knows.. that tiger might be outthere..
(Spoilers!) However, going in the bush without a weapon, and protest when one person brings a crossbow. Then when attacked not taking the crossbow with you, and not staying together??
Also very short! 91 min!
this was an ok film and i was fairly entertained the entire way threw,but then again,it was'nt anything i would remember in 2 days time,i give this movie a 5 outta 10...
If I had seen this movie before our trip to this region I would not have gone! This area is as remote as depicted in the movie and we have often considered the possibility of the Tasmania Tiger still existing in the wilderness of the west coast. It is definetly a possibility as far as we are concerned. I found the cannibalism hard to watch and hope that it is fiction and not truth. We live in rural Tasmania arriving from the mainland in the last 12 months and have found characters in our travels here with the same attitude and demeanour as those in the movie.
yeh this aussie flick is great with suspence and the ewww is there
This is a scary movie.....Dark . It was strangely entertaining to say the very least. It is a horror film, no surprise there but teh depths of the horrors are , not to my taste, certain scenes I shut my eyes and I do not have a weak stomach. However, for an Australian or attempt at horror, it was pretty good. How would I describe it, well let's just say it's 'Deliverance' meets 'The Hills Have Eyes' meets the "Chain Saw Massacre". It is a story that follows on from an escaped criminal who's offspring survive as
In-breds and cannibalistic Tasmanians who search out, lure in and hunt and torture four unsuspecting tourists who themselves on the hunt to photograph the illusive Tasmanian Tiger or Thylacine. It's a evolving and revealing the story, shown and portrayed at its own pace. The special effects are great and the acting (all new comers - no names that I can remember) it holds its own, its up there. The acting is excellent...the script is believable, the plot carries the movie to the end and the locations are quite brilliant. I gave it 4/5 for being well made. I hope the Tasmanian tourist bureau does not use it as a "stay away" tourist campaign.... and you will see why right at the end....scary facts !!
Deliverance meets Wolf Creek. Good Aussie thriller
This was horrible and puts me off visiting small towns in Tassie - especially after here a friends experience of the kreepies she met
Pleasantly surprised by this Australian movie. Much better then expected. Not all together a BELIEVABLE movie, but I still enjoyed it. If a fan of Australian Movie Industry definately recommend this one :D
odd, but not without it's charm.
Surprisingly good! A bit slow to start but it kept me watching from beginning to end. Plays on the Tasmanian inbreeder joke. Fun to watch Aussie's running and screaming in a sicko-based horror for a change :)
Not the best tourism movie ever made. One gets the feeling that all Tasmanian residents are to be avoided at all costs. The movie had a great premise but deteriorated into an un-entertaining B-movie horror flick.
this is a terrible film that doesn't do much for tasmania's tourism. its gross and the ending is frustrating!
Given media reviews went into this with low expectations and as a fan of Saw. Not anywhere as good as Saw or bad as they say. Give it a go.
A bit over the top at times, but not bad.
Unreal Aussie movie. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time i would definatly recomend to anyone who likes a bit of horror,leaves you very curious - dont sight see in tasmania!!!! or eat pies for that matter!
An Australian blend of "Wrong Turn" and "Wolf Creek".
Good cast, location and atmosphere.
I didn't find Dying Breed all that interesting and the problem wasn't so much the story but more the fact that I really didn't have any empathy for any of the characters - and I think you do need empathy for characters in a horror type of movie. If you don't care who lives or dies your really not going to get much out of it and I found this to be the case. I also don't think much was made of Tasmanias scenery which is a shame.
I have seen much better low budget Australian movies.
I live in Tasmania and I can tell you for a fact that this sort of thing happens ALL the time.
Was in Tasmani just days before watching this film, so it envoled an extra sense of "thrill", but the last third of the film just disintegrates into cheap, cliched horror. But entertaining none-the-less.
Starts like a survival Horror subgenre then changes to a creature kind of to finish like a Texas Chainsaw Massacre/Wolf Creek type. Not bad but looks like they didn't know what to really make. Mixing different HOrror subgenres never really work and Dying Breed is the perfect example. It's so slow at first that you wonder when it will really start. The production is good, the acting is good. Go for it knowing that it's not the best flick you will ever see.
Look, it was OK. It was entertaining to say the least.
Its not the best horror film i've ever seen, but for an Australian attempt it was pretty good.
Its our version of 'Deliverance' meets 'The Hills Have Eyes'.
Inbred cannibal Tasmanians hunt and torture four unsuspecting tourist on the hunt for the Tasmanian tiger. Its a silly story but the film holds its own. The effects are great and the acting is also pretty up there.
I gave it 3/5 for being well made.
