Billy B (kr) wrote: A man inherits a unique box after his fathers death, and soon after his friends start to die, one-by-one. This is another shining example of why Australian horror films just don't work. Like Dying Breed, Black Water and the worst horror film i've ever seen, Prey, Needle has alot of potential to do big things with it's premise, but it fails to really have an edge. The entire movie was just predictable, although the twist ending I didn't see coming until about half and hour before it was revealed. Whilst it had some great effects and visuals, the movie never really took off and left me bored out of my brain after a while. The death scenes were definately the best part of the movie, but they couldn't save it. The plot is simple enough, but when writers don't expand simple plots they have a generic horror film that will never stand the test of time. These days horror films need something unique going for them, but the whole voodoo killer gets old. The added value of having a lesbian couple was clearly something they used in the marketing to get people interested, which really says it all. The acting was below average. Jessica Marais, or more commonly known as Rachel from Packed to the Rafters, is just a shit actress in general. How people love her is beyond me. She's as plain as an Arrowroot biscuit, although towards the end she did get a tad better. Michael Dorman was almost as generic. Overall Needle is another boring, predictable Australian horror flicks that lacks any real suspense. My rating is 2/5.

Said the pie man to Simple Simon, "When the time is right" Said Simple Simon to the pie man, "Then I'll die tonight". While I'm not sure that I'd watch Dying Breed again, I have to admit that I enjoyed it through the first time. There are some great landscape shots in this movie and, overall, I felt the atmosphere was creepy, lending itself well to the dark tone of the picture. There was some suspense and a bit of gore as well. However, there was nothing really new or interesting in the plot. Similar movies have covered the same material before (Wrong Turn, perhaps to a lesser extent even The Chainsaw Massacre movies...) and although there's a link to an actual historical figure, it's a pretty weak link and there's no new twists to make this unique. The characters are all pretty unlovable, so there's not much to relate to in that department. The production values are high, so I have to recommend this over some of the other After Dark Horror Fest films I've seen. Between 1788 and 1868, Australia served as a penal colony for the British Empire and Tasmania was the most feared. The prisoner Alexander "The Pieman" Pearce escaped and survived in the woods eating human flesh. In the present days, the researcher Nina (Mirrah Foulkes) organizes an expedition to Tasmania to proceed the work of her deceased sister Ruth and find evidences of the extinct Tasmanian tiger in the wilderness. She travels to a remote area with her boyfriend Matt (Leigh Whannell) and his troublemaker friend Jack (Nathan Phillips) that brings his girlfriend Rebecca (Melanie Vallejo) and they spend the night in a village of descendants of "The Pieman". Sooner the quartet discovers that things have to stay hidden to survive. "Dying Breed" is another sub product of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and gives the sensation of dj vu to the viewer with the total lack of originality. There are many flaws in the predictable story, like for example, how could an expedition travel unarmed in a remote area in the wilderness? What would they expect while observing the wildlife? How can a group travel without a Plan B for unexpected situations? The greatest different in this feature is the wonderful location in Australia. Further, the acting is good and for fans of the slash genre, it entertains. Tasmania, Australia---one of the world's most isolated islands. It is rumored that, deep within the wilderness, an ancient species known as the Tasmanian Tiger is alive and breeding. Yet, modern science refuses to believe such a creature now exists, since no witnesses have ever been able to prove it. That is, until zoology student Nina (Mirrah Foulkes), claims she can breach Tasmania's impenetrable forests and confirm the tigers' existence. Driving Nina's quest is one critical piece of proof: a photo of a paw print taken by her sister just before she met with a fatal accident eight years before. In the early 19th century, the murderous convict Alexander Pearce (aka "The Pieman") had broken out of prison twice, and each time he had killed and eaten his fellow escapees. But what Nina doesn't know is that, before he was hung for cannibalism in 1824, he'd spawned a blood line who inherited his taste for human flesh. Soon, Nina and her friends discover that in the wild, as one species may have died out, another has thrived---in the form of the Pieman's descendants. When she sets out with her partner, Matt (Leigh Whannell), his old mate, Jack (Nathan Phillips), and his girlfriend, Rebecca (Melanie Vallejo), their little expedition encounters the island's reigning breed, but one who stands on two legs, not four. The Pieman clan has survived, and their need to feed and breed turns Nina, Matt, Jack and Rebecca into this island's next endangered species. Between 1788 and 1868, Australia served as a penal colony for the British Empire and Tasmania was the most feared. The prisoner Alexander "The Pieman" Pearce escaped and survived in the woods eating human flesh. In the present days, the researcher Nina organizes an expedition to Tasmania to proceed the work of her deceased sister Ruth and find evidences of the extinct Tasmanian tiger in the wilderness. She travels to a remote area with her boyfriend Matt and his troublemaker friend Jack that brings his girlfriend Rebecca and they spend the night in a village of descendants of "The Pieman". Sooner the quartet discovers that things have to stay hidden to survive. 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.
Stuart K (gb) wrote: Directed by Michael Cohn (When the Bough Breaks (1994)), this is a dark, bloody, lurid re-imagining of the Grimm Brothers fairy story. Unlike the two Snow White adaptations in 2012, Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, this one has a dark horror angle. It's a good combination, although it falls into somewhere between Euro-pudding and B-Movie horror cheese, but it manages to be fun nontheless. Lilli Hoffman (Monica Keena) was born after her mother Lilliana (Joanna Roth) suffered an accident in a coach, her father Lord Frederick (Sam Neill) has always put Lilli first, but he chooses to marry Lady Claudia (Sigourney Weaver), who takes an instant disliking to Lilli, and after a stillborn birth. Claudia decides to kill Lilli, and sends her mute brother Gustav (Miroslav Taborsky) to kill her, but he cannot. Lilli escapes and ends up with a group of seven miners, led by Lars (Brian Glover), who are rough and rugged, but they agree to help Lilli get home and stop Claudia, who has started to poison Lord Frederick, but when she discovers Lilli is still alive, decides to finish the job. It's a little seen horror film, it was never released theatrically in America due to bad test screenings, so it premiered there on Showtime. But, it manages to be better than it looks, and it makes the most of a lot of European locations in and around Prague too.

Stephen G (ca) wrote: A solid film featuring a surprisingly realistic performance from Pomeranc who is able to hold his own with such greats as Kingsley and Fishburne. A wonderful cast performs at top-notch and the story, while not entirely true to the real-life story, holds true to many of the themes expressed in Fred Waitzkin's book of the same name. This film holds nicely to the line between sentimentality and realism while providing a very inspirational story for people of all ages. In fact, this is the movie that made me want to be a chess player.
