On their quest to find a rare tiger, four hikers venture deep into isolated territory of Tasmania and into the small township of "Sarah". Nestled within the impenetrable forests of Western Tasmania, "Sarah" was the hideout of the infamous cannibal nicknamed "The Pieman" in the 1800s. The township lives on passionately upholding its heritage in honor of the convict patriarch that gave birth to it. It needs to stay hidden to survive... but it also needs fresh "stock" to breed.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even by the low standards of other horror-movie victims, the foursome here seem blithely clueless, always splitting up for no good reason and running headlong into ambushes.
Fresh: Grisly as it needs to be, Dying Breed is nevertheless quite a sophisticated horror film, layered with elements and peopled with leading characters who are more than stereotypes, thanks also to top performances.
Rotten: It's a textbook gorefest. Give it a miss if you don't like blood.
Fresh: Right from the opening credits, with their strangely beautiful blown-up images of blood and the accompanying darkly rhythmic score, you're primed for something terrible to happen.
Great Horror Movie
Dying Breed delivers! I loved the concept and the acting was semi-convincing. The movie starts off fairly grusomely but then slows for about the next forty minutes; this only "sets up" the viewer for an excellent second act. Is it just me or has almost every recent horror release contain some sort of cannibalism? I wonder if the entire genre is heading this way or is it that eating another human being is just the only way to shock horror fans nowadays? Not since Hostel has a movie switched gears in such a dramatic fashion; this is what makes the movie so interesting to watch-the viewer waits in anticipation for the impending doom and demise of the characters that seem so unaware of the dangers surrounding them. This makes for an original film along with some solid gore, bloodshed and plenty of disturbing moments. A must rent for true fanatics just like me-ENJOY
I want my $$$ back!!! Complete WASTE of my time!!! The first hour was really boring and then things picked up to give it my 1 star rating. This was terrible......
Worth the rent. Like it better than Wrong Turn.
