Eight years ago, zoology student Nina (Mirrah Foulkes)'s sister was searching for evidence of the elusive Tasmanian Tiger when she suddenly disappeared without a trace. Before she vanished, however, she sent her sister a photograph of a paw print which matched the description of the tiger. Nina decides to explore Tasmania's dense and dangerous forests in an attempt to prove the existence of the creature, taking her partner Matt (Whannell), his old friend Jack (Phillips), and his girlfriend Rebecca (Melanie Vallejo) with her. Unfortunately for the four adventurers, something far more horrifying is awaiting them in the jungle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Backwater Cannibals 1 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
Once every while a movie comes along that leaves such a punch in its final moments that its final message outweighs any other aspect of the film.

New Aussie horror The Dying Breed opens in a rather lengthy way, delivering an insight into four characters without really giving you a shred of information. Geared firmly at the character of Nina who has lots of meaningful moments, flashbacks and visions of events that occurred to her sister in a rural location sometime earlier. The movies characters all have headed to a strange backwater in search of the site of the mysterious Tasmanian Tiger, something that is as great a myth as Bigfoot. While Nina acts all weird and deep, the others all seem to share a mutual dislike for each other forming two parties. But as they feud, they all miss completely the tensions that surround them.

My opening paragraph may seem a little confused, but to be honest with you it all is pretty much, there are little explanations given as to why people are how they are, or why they behave the way they do; its all done in that way where the movies creators have tried to be on a higher intellectual plain than us mere mortals. The truth of the matter is, despite their best efforts its not very deep at all.

Now saying this, The Dying Breed is not a bad film, because what it does do is gather a couple of menacing factors and sticks them together. First up you have the issue of the Tasmanian Tiger, a creature that lives in isolation and is only rumored to exist, rumour suggests that the only reason its never been seen is because those that see it are eaten, and logic would tell you that such an illusive animal would be a little on the protective side to protect its lifestyle.

4.0 out of 5 stars DISTURBING,BUT HAS SOME BITE. 25 Mar 2013
By BAZ316
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A young woman hears about sightings of an ancient tiger that may or may not exist and goes with some friends to find out more.
They come to a little place full of strange folk including a little girl who likes to bite and chant a disturbing rhyme about the pieman,an escaped convict from years ago who is rumoured to have left a human-fleshing eating beatly brood behind to carry on his legacy.
Whilst the group are out,one of them goes missing and becomes lunch for one of said brood,the rest go on looking for her and soon find themselves running for their lives and trying to escape all sorts of bloody madness.
Okay,so it's nothing original,but it's done well and the little girl is quite disturbing,certainly near the end. I very much enjoyed this as much as i understand it would be too disturbing for some,what with murders and implications of rape and such,but as i say,it's very well done and didn't leave me disappointed. Oh,those that like gore shouldn't be disappointed,there's quite a bit of it amongst this great story.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's all been done before 3 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
Imagine the lovechild of Sweeney Todd, Deliverance and just about every film with cannibals/inbred hicks etc etc. The only difference is, this is set in Tasmania and questions the extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger. Predictable. Not bad, just nothing really new here.

*Spoiler*
Why did they keep focusing on the trap in the tunnel? Nothing happened with it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unengaging 20 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
I preferred it the first time; I certainly remembered it being better

Four people go to isolated location where they meet odd local people, things get dangerous etc. You've seen similar films probably, this one's nothing memorable.

Locals are sufficiently weird but aside from a guy called Jack our protagonists are very bland.

Not exactly bad, just formulaic.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..TOP HORROR.." 24 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray
If you love horror and thrills and scares and a fantastic and original story than look no further. The cast is great and they all give good performances, there is plenty of bloody gore and creepy redneck freaks! The ending is pretty messed up too! Overall fantastic film worth every penny "horror gem"
