31 days of Halloween: Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain

Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain is a low budget 2003 horror film. The film stars a boatload of porn stars including Ginger Allen, Chasey Lain, Taylor Hayes and Jenna Jameson. The rest of the cast includes Bobbie Phillips, Howard Rosenstein and 90's crummy movie mainstay Richard Grieco.

For serious B-horror films like this, you'll have to expect some "special" things going on. The film clocks in at a dazzling 88 minutes (including credits), while the film is supposed to be set in Ireland I don't think they found a single Irish actor or actress. The accents are atrocious. Ginger Lynn makes an attempt, but it fades in and out every few seconds. With that said, the acting from the porn stars is better than many of the actual actor's acting.

Since I know some of what went on behind the scenes, I felt kind of bad about how the final film was treated. The film was taken away from the director and many of the crew and replaced. The film was edited poorly, and so the final result was not what was originally intended, though when is it ever when the final result is so poor? I'll give them a bit of leeway, especially since the ending that appears in the film makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

There's some horror there, but the film is so bland and silly that any horror elements get lost in the bloody mist.
