Dying Breed (2008) Synopsis:

Inspired by the story of “The Pieman” who was hanged for cannibalism in 1824, the film follows the journey of three young people as they search for the extinct Tasmanian Tiger.

Dying Breed (2008) Review:

Another of these films where city youngsters go to the countryside only to stumble upon complete maniacs, in the vein of Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Hills Have Eyes, etc.

This movie starts as a complete cliché of the movies cited above, youngsters arrive in a dirty village filled with hostile bumpkins, they then go by themselves in the dangerous woods…and eventually, they get attacked. Nothing exceptional storywise.

But then the movie speeds up a bit and become more interesting. Thereee is a lot of gore, a lot of shocking scenes like the one with the baby. Gore lovers should be pleased.

The story around the different breed of humans and how they are trying to survive is however quite good. In my opinion, it could have been a much better movie if this aspect was more developed, instead of just having it as a backstory.
