Movie Info

Following in the tradition of his 1995 film Grim, in which England's Clearwell Caves doubled for Virginia, Paul Matthews' Breeders has England double for a Boston girls' school. The plot concerns a meteor that holds an alien monster (rendered in 3-D on the garish video box), a slinky alien woman (Kadamba Simmons), and a bunch of shattered crystals. The crystals end up as necklaces around the necks of several students, who get possessed and go to the sewers beneath the school where they are encased in cocoons so they can bear the monster's children. In a morally dubious development, the hero is a professor (Todd Jensen) who is sleeping with one of his students (Samantha Janus). The same basic story was shot under the same title in 1986 by Tim Kincaid.

Audience Reviews for Breeders

½

Campy fun monster effects, a silly plot, goofy characters, but no brains. The film isn't really appealing or entertaining, and falls among the most unpopular 90's B-movies. It has a few decent scenes at beast, but ultimately is only watchable for the monster.

Maybe it was the old school monster that would not have been out of place in any number of 50's horror films. Maybe that the lead characters played their roles with more sincerity than the material deserved. Somehow it ended up to be way more fun than it should have been. Good rainy Saturday afternoon creature feature.

Fairly dreadful, especially for sci-fi horror, a genre I usually enjoy. Poorly acted and directed with crappy effects. The alien here resembles the prehistoric creature that I recently saw in "The Dark." I loved the bigger rubber claw they kept showing when the alien was near.
