| Things Have to Stay Hidden to Survive
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 déjà 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. My vote is six.
