#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Dying Breed interweaves the two most fascinating icons of Tasmanian history: the extinct Tasmanian tiger and “The Pieman” (aka Alexander Pearce) who was hanged for cannibalism in 1824. Against all odds, Pearce escaped from the most feared penal settlement of the British Empire – Sarah Island – and disappeared into the impenetrable forests of Western Tasmania. Seven convicts escaped with him, yet Pearce was the only one that emerged… along with chunks of human flesh in his pockets. The legend of Pearce was born. An extinct species… a long forgotten legend… both had a desperate need to survive; both could now have living descendants within the Tasmanian bush. Many sightings of the tiger have been reported. Many hikers have gone missing. Hundreds in fact. Zoologist Nina is convinced there are still tigers remaining in the Tasmanian wilderness, and she has proof – a photograph of a paw print snapped by her sister just before she met with a fatal accident in the bush eight years before. Unable to attain funding for an expedition, Nina fears her wish to finish her sister’s work (and perhaps lay to rest recurrent nightmares she has about her sister’s death) will never happen. Her partner, Matt, manages to persuade an old mate Jack to help finance the trip – at a price. Jack brings along a girlfriend, Rebecca, who uses the trip as an escape from her stifling real estate job. On their quest to find the extinct tiger, the group venture deep into isolated territory and into the domain of “Pieman” descendants. “Sarah” is a small township that passionately upholds its cannibalistic heritage in honour of the convict patriarch that gave birth to it. It needs to stay hidden to survive… but it also needs fresh “stock” to breed. The four hunters become the hunted.

To quickly summarize this movie, you take “Wrong Turn” and put it together with “The Hills Have Eyes”, and then you end up with “Dying Breed”. Just change the scenery to the Tasmanian outdoors, and voilà, there you go. Although “Dying Breed” is nowhere near as interesting as either of the other movies.
“Dying Breed” is basically about a group of people stuck in the deep woods, and something is out there stalking them. The movie sort of builds up some fairly good moments, but they are always toppled by an anti-climatic result. Toss in a supposedly Tasmanian tiger in the equation, and hope it would work. But it didn’t, at least not for me…
And had the movie been based on something fresh, it might actually have been interesting, but the story and plot was handpicked right out of movies like “Wrong Turn”, “The Hills Have Eyes” and such similar movies.
Now as for the cast, well they were actually well cast and they did good jobs with their roles. I especially liked the acting of Leigh Whannell towards the end, when he was in the chair. That was really cool. Although what happened following that scene was so predictable, that you could smell it a mile away.
There was no frights in this movie, which was a total disappointment. There were moments when there could have been some suspense, but the movie failed to deliver on that part. As for the psychological aspect of the movie, well that was brilliant. Being trapped in the woods, scared, something stalking you, and weird hillbillies nearby, well that actually did work out well enough for the movie. Although, it has all be used before.
“Dying Breed” was somewhat of a disappointing experience. I had expected more from this, as it is a part of the “After Dark Horrorfest” movies. But now I’ve seen it, and will chalk it up as a Tasmanian remake of “Wrong Turn” and “The Hills Have Eyes”, nothing more… I don’t recommend this movie to be a top priority to watch if you are into horror movies or psychologically freaky movies, this is slow-moving and takes forever to get nothing told. There are far better and far scarier movies out there in the woods…
I just got back from seeing Dying Breed and it was quite a mixed bag.
It took at least 50 minutes for the main action to begin. The first act got repetitive, dull and boring quickly as our four main characters seemed to do nothing and just chat. Don’t get me wrong, I love character development, but they could have taken about ten minutes off the first act. There were many pointless scenes.
The other bad factor was the acting. Leigh Whannel sadly gave a poor performance, as well as all the other members in the group of four.
Onto the good, the gore was excellent and the film had that raw and gritty feel to it. Some scenes were creepy and disturbing. Also, the ending was very good and a fitting climax to the film.
Overall, this is an above average Aussie horror with many flaws and clichés, but still manages to entertain. A very generous 7/10.
