The BreedThere's an upcoming DVD you may want to get curious about. It's called The Breed, and it registers on the radar for being directed by an acolyte of both Wes Craven and George Romero, a fellow by the name of Nick Mastandrea. I knew an Andrea shaped like a mast.

Here's the synopsis: "A group of friends (Michelle Rodriguez, Taryn Manning, Hill Harper and Oliver Hudson) fly away to a deserted island for a weekend excursion. They realize that this beautiful getaway was once controlled by a special canine research unit and it will soon become their biggest nightmare. Inspired by horror classics...The Breed takes you into the jaws of a flesh eating pack of wild dogs, genetically engineered to hunt and kill. Outnumbered and trapped they struggle to outsmart and outrun this terrifying species." I'm not sure exactly which classic horror movies it is inspired by, but nature horror still has reserves of untapped potential; exhibit (a) being Nick's own Grizzly Park.

The disc hits the streets on May 22; we'll have a review for you soon, gushing our unending love for Michelle Rodriguez. You may want to wear galoshes.
