      Audience Member Another 1980s Charles Band Empire Pictures/Wizard Video camp epic. This one, although still certainly campy, has a bit of a nastier edge to the story which focuses on various beautiful Manhattan women (a model, a nurse, an actress, a bag lady [okay, not all of them were beautiful]) being raped by an alien creature. The film features no stars and was directed by Tim Kincaid, who after looking on IMDB, started his career directing 70s gay porn as Joe Gage, had a brief run in the 80s directing low budget horror and science fiction films, and since then returned to his Joe Gage porn director roots to this very day. Although I'd like to think of him as the tragic character Burt Reynolds played in "Boogie Nights," I'm sure I'd just be romanticizing a hack director. For the most part, this film was basically a series of unconnected vignettes of women disrobing to exercise, to shower, or whatever, and then being attached by the alien. The only reason to watch this film is for camp nostalgia and this film does deliver plenty. Outside of that, there's really nothing to recommend about this film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Take the film for what it is and you will have a blast. The cast does a great deal with what appears to have been a fast shoot. Not to mention it is nice to see NYC in the late 80s. There is a C.H.U.D. vibe for certain, but also reminds me of Humanoids from the Deep (another classic). Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member http://letterboxd.com/zbender/film/breeders/ I decided on a little slice of 80s before I go to bed. And better yet a slice of low budget horror. It had it all: distinctive hairstyles, lines of cocaine, those damn practical effects of face-splitting, chest bursting gore. Throw in a metamorphic alien who goes from greasy slimy to rubber suit alien, gratuitous amounts of nudity, acting that plays out like a straight read through in terms of quality, poor (or is it ingenious) dialogue, embarrassing tan lines, and a bathtub of men's milk (the stuff that doesn't come out of our nipples; disgusting I know) and you've got Breeders. Breeders does not quite come across as the so bad it's good that I was hoping for, but damn there is some things to admire and hate. The dialogue while delivered with the most straight face at times can be dull, but then there will be little nuggets of fun. My favorite lines (paraphrased): "Ted's a nice guy.... He lives with his mother. You don't get it do you? Ted is gay." Well that isn't exactly putting two and two together, but for this movie I'll make an exception. There is some fine gore throughout and is really one of this movie's saving graces. There is some imagery reminiscent of Freddy Krueger, or of Alien. The climax is pretty much anti-climatic, but for bad films like this there comes a point where you aren't looking for the happy ending, or to relate to the character, or even trying to look for a coherent story. At a point I looked for little intricacies to keep me amused. It also helps that this film is no 2 hour long drag. Amused? Yes. Pleased? No. Would I recommend? Nope, you pretty much had a handy summary reading this and the movie description. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a pretty low rent shitty italian sci fi horror comedy. If you watch it looking for a cheesefest then you're all set. If you watch this expecting a lost Aliens type film then you'll be shit outta luck. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member For an awful journey into the strange and unexplained, look no further than Tim Kincaid's BREEDERS from 1986. BREEDERS is consistently terrible from start to finish. The police have a serial rapist on their hands, but the female victims are unable to recall any of the details surrounding the horrible events. They soon discover that the acid burns and viscous black fluid found on the victims bodies have been left behind by an alien life-form that must breed with human women! BREEDERS follows four basic steps: woman talks about her virginity, woman gets raped, police are baffled, repeat. The mindless dialog is only made worse by the stifled performances from each of the talentless cast members. We haven't seen this much bad rubber monster rape since HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP! Any film that can turn excessive nudity and gore into a borefest deserves to sit on the shelf. -Carl Manes I Like Horror Movies Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Breeders (1986) -- [2.0] -- A cheesy-looking bug alien goes on a rape rampage in New York City. Any actress inclined to go full-frontal will wind up mother of space spawn! "Breeders" is a thinly veiled attempt by a porn director (Tim Kincaid) to go 'legit'. The result is a perfect mash-up of a B-monster movie and soft core porn, with copious female nudity, a handful of cute low-budget effects, and wonderfully atrocious acting. Want to see a half-dozen naked women writhing in a kiddie pool full of white pudding? Then "Breeders" is just the 'so bad it's good' guilty pleasure for you.
