Dark Breed made in 1996 for PM Entertainment, directed by Richard Pepin (the guy who made almost all the PM Entertainment films) Huge explosion and overly intense action with little consequences. Staring the always hilariously out of place Jack Scalia and a side character of Lance Legault playing a military big whig which he does in every single role he ever played and Buck Flower playing a hobo again like he does in every role he is in too. Jack Scalia is an ex astronaut now military cop that goes after a bunch of run away astronauts that he knew from his past. Thing is the night the astronauts crashed back on earth everyone finds they are possessed by aliens making them unstoppable killing machines. Its up to the overly intense and amazingly action cliched Jack Sacalia to hunt them down and find out what there evil plot is. Like all PM flicks it starts with a huge highway chase that ends in a huge explosion and many flip cop cars. Then stalls out for a while in character having cliche flash backs to hint towards their troubled lives. The runaway astronauts get themselves in trouble as the evil aliens inside them make them go around ripping everyone’s heads off. Early on you know what you are getting in when Jack Scalia shoots at one of the runaway astronauts with a bazooka playing up their van. It takes a few seconds but you realise that was before Jacks character (Nick) knew they were evil aliens. You stop and think “wait a minute he was just shooting a regular guy with that bazooka for no reason at all”. Awkward editing and storytelling in amazing alien in an urban setting action flick. The pacing and music ques lets you know this movie thought it was equal to Predator 2 but if it got really drunk before getting going. I did enjoy it though as it’s basically just a much more chaotic take on the HIDDEN ..again not as good as the Hidden but would have made a better sequel then Hidden 2 was.
As brain damaged as this movie is, after years of using the trailer for this movie in mash up clips I am glad I finally sat down and watch it all. Alien movie go boom boom… dumb dumb movie me likey. lol
