~ Five teenagers take a vacation on a remote island where brothers, Matt and John, have inherited a cabin. Matt's girlfriend Nicki, Sarah and Noah also accompany them. Before they can get settled in, Sara (Michelle Rodriguez) is bitten by a vicious stray dog. The brothers are immediately prompted by memories of a facility for training dogs somewhere on other side of the island. Fearing the worst - rabies - they head for their sea plane, but the dogs have already set it adrift. In small packs they wait in the surrounding hillside, watching, waiting to attack ... the five friends find themselves fighting a battle for survival against these genetically redesigned and intelligent canine killers ~
From the director of 'Nightmare On Elm Street 1984 [DVD
]' and 'Scream [DVD
]', 'The Breed' is one of the better films produced by Wes Craven. It is a simple slasher-style flick, well written and directed, with a good cast and a nice little twist at the end. There are plenty of tense moments here also. Apparently they used real dogs for this film, not computer generated hounds.
