The Coroner has temporarily left the building.  Old Sawbones Fure took one look at the 8 Films To Die For in this year’s After Dark Horrorfest and flew into an immediate rage.  He marched right in to Executive Editor Neil Miller’s office (bypassing a proper check-in with the secretary, Cole Abiaus) and threw three of the titles onto the desk.  “These are foreign films,” he snarled, “You know I don’t watch movies when I can’t understand the language!”  Long story short, Miller and Abiaus assuaged Fure’s anger with martinis and a massage (respectively) and then assigned the British, Australian, and Korean films to yours truly. Dying Breed is the latest in a long string of Australian thrillers illustrating the simple truth that rural Australians want to kill you.  Nina and Matt are heading into the wilds of Tasmania (an island of the south-eastern coast of Australia) to search for evidence of living Tasmanian tigers.  The quest is a personal one for Nina as her sister apparently went mad and died eight years prior while on a similar journey.  Matt convinces his friend Jack to join them, and Jack brings along his current girlfriend, Rebecca.  Running parallel to the story about extinct Tasmanian tigers is the legend of The Pieman, Alexander Pearce.  He was a convicted cannibal who escaped into the Tasmanian wilds in the early 1800′s.  The modern-day quartet is searching for living relatives of the supposedly extinct tigers, but it may be The Pieman’s descendants that find them first… […]
