Goofy little splatter film that can be summed up in one sentence: "porn stars vs. cannibals."
A bunch of American tourists (including Jenna Jameson, Chasey Lain and Taylor Hayes) are taking a trip thru the Irish countryside (played by Canada) when they meet up with a tribe of flesh chowin' inbred mutants who look like the members of GWAR. Stabbings, impalings, gore, bare boobs, and extremely bad acting follow.
Don't bother renting this one strictly for the porn gals, cuz they all have pretty small roles (except for aging '80s adult video queen Ginger Lynn, who plays the caretaker of the cottage our tourists stay at -- and who apparently keeps forgetting that she's playing an Irish woman in this flick, cuz her Irish accent comes and goes throughout the movie. Haha.) Absolutely ridiculous, but oh so much fun to watch.
Apparently this movie was supposed to be a totally over-the-top, out-and-out gore fest but it was subject to massive editing prior to release. There's still some blood and guts to be had but they're barely a hint of what might have been. (uncut versions of a couple of the gore scenes are included on the DVD as bonus features and yes, they are suitably yucky.)
But hey, if you've ever wanted to see a porn star get one of her silicon breast implants ripped out of her chest by an inbred cannibal mutant, this is your movie!!

Terrible. Bobbie Phillips could and SHOULD do better than this "film". Whoever wasted the money and manpower to have this flick produced should be shot. SPOILER WARNING: Let's see, the premise of the movie: Myth proves true when inbred cannibals quickly start offing EVERYBODY, that is, all the students, teachers, guides, what have you, on some field trip. No real reason other than they're inbred cannibals. Just when you think it can't get any worse, there's an unbelievably (not that any of this can be mistaken for believable) unrealistic twist in the end that makes no sense, it leaves you saying "What the hell?" and wanting to kick your own a$$ for wasting 85min. of your life on this flick. Save your brain cells and watch paint dry instead of "Evil Breed." The paint may prove more stimulating.

This movie was not what I expected. It is your average run of the mill horror movie, but the story line was ok. It stars 3 porn stars, including Jenna Jameson. Not bad, but not the best. I gave it three stars, something to watch when you can't find anything good on tv.

Aging pornstars can't save this lousy slasher film

"This film is pretty much like every other camping-trip-ruined-by-inbred-cannibals movie you've ever seen - except Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain does it with aging pornstars. I have to question the filmmaker's reasoning here. Young pornstars I could understand. I don't care how hot Chasey Lain, Jenna Jameson, and Taylor Hayes were back in the day, all of the body reconstruction work is beginning to show, as are the effects of various substances they've probably injected into themselves at one point or another. Furthermore, why do I want to go through the torture of watching a horrible movie just to see a couple of them topless when a quick Google search could take me right to video clips of them getting their freak on when their implants were still new? I will grant the filmmakers a little leeway when it comes to Ginger Lynn Allen, since she has actually done a fair share of mainstream films over the years. But get this - these guys have Ginger speaking with an Irish accent. You just have to laugh at this nonsense.
Okay, getting back to the actual film. I don't know what college these folks are from, but their teacher, Karen (Bobbie Phillips), has eschewed the classroom setting in order to bring them to Ireland and show them real history. Her entire lesson plan, I must note, seems to consist solely of a few moments spent cracking jokes around a circle of rocks. Only one girl, Shae (Brandi-Ann Milbradt) is even interested in the subject; the others just want to have sex. Everyone soon goes their separate ways, get attacked by cannibals, yada yada yada. The whole thing would be excruciatingly unbearable were it not for one man, this film's one and only saving grace. And that man's name is Gary (Simon Peacock), who turns up again and again, right out of the blue, to warn the Americans not to stray off the path in those dangerous woods. Say what you will, but I think more horror films could use weirdo Scotsmen popping up now and again to utter dire warnings in a distinctively brogue tongue.
Let's be clear: this is a lousy horror movie with an atrocious ending. Yeah, it's good for a few laughs but that's it. The only good thing about it is the gore, but I obviously didn't find the film nearly as gory as some. Yeah, there's blood and entrails and all that good stuff, but it all looks fake. No one loves a good beheading more than I do, but the one in this film is just ridiculous. Of course, the gore would have been much more satisfying if we had been able to see the film as it was originally made. Sadly, Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain is what is left after a significant amount of gore and nudity got snipped out of the original version. Why you would heavily edit the only two things going for you (in this case, nudity and gore) is beyond me; it's cinematic self-castration."
