The Breed (2006) - Nick Mastandrea

Horror is crap, well most of it. Films like Darkness Falls and Dark Water. Its all a weird kind of family friendly horror. Then the Breed strolled onto my computer screen. This is a horrible concept, 20 somethings come to an abandoned island for a weekend of partying. Only to find that the entire island is overrun by mean dogs. Not Zombie dogs, not Werewolves, just dogs. The film has Michelle Rodriguez post her DUI problems. All in all Wes Craven is getting old and dropping the ball on most everything he touches. The antagonist in this movie really isn't very scary. Nothing that a baseball bat cant take care of, yet the actors really try to sell the fact that these K9's are terrifying. The Breed is a terrible movie that will make you run off with your tail between your legs.

2LDK (2002) - Yukihiko Tsutsumi

2LDK (aka. 2 Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen) is a strange suspenseful horror movie from Japan. The entire thing only features two characters and takes place in the span of one week.

The movie features two young actresses that both get an apartment together and learn that each one is being considered for the same role. This infuriates the two women and they end up battling for seventy minuets. Not just fight but they literally beat the living shit out of each other with various items thorough out the house.

They use various items in the house including a chainsaw to attack each other. This is it. This is the entire plot of the film. Jealousy spawns physical battle. Its pretty basic. The entire thing is filmed in one location. They don't vary from this recipe and I believe that it actually hurts the film. I respect what they are going for here, but other than it being a pretty interesting idea the movie falls flat.
