This review is from: Breeders [DVD] (DVD)
There's something unpleasant lurking in the sewers - and I'm not talking about last night's curry! An evil-looking alien has landed on Earth with the intention of reproducing and it is prepared to kill anyone who tries to stop it.
Breeders reminded me a little bit of another film with an alien in it. Now what was it called? Ah yes.... Alien, that's it. I suppose it is a bit unfair though to compare Breeders to Ridley Scott's sci-fi/horror masterpiece because Alien has an excellent ensemble cast of talented actors, a good script, impressive sets and great special effects whereas Breeders does not have any of these attributes.
The film is supposed to be set in Boston, Massachusetts, but it may as well have been set in Boston, Lincolnshire, as there seems to be a number of people trying to put on a fake American accent! The cast includes Eastenders' Samantha Janus (now Samantha Womack) as a 25 year-old schoolgirl and Oliver (The Stud) Tobias as a cop who wears a silly hat (occasionally). Sexy Sam gives us a couple of glimpses of her lovely bare bum but that's about the only exciting thing that happens in this movie. I really lost interest in it after the girls' locker room and shower scene.
I noticed a while ago that copies of this particular DVD from Digital were fetching quite high prices on the internet which suggests that the film may have achieved a certain cult status but I cannot imagine why. I think there is more chance of spotting a UFO or having a real close encounter of the third kind than finding anything of interest in this movie!
If you have a passion for tracking down daft, low-budget sci-fi films then you may just wish to check out Breeders but anyone else should probably give this one a miss.
