Breeders (1986)

Evidently, I was doomed to watch strange and cheaply made monsters this week. Maybe it is because Blobfest is on the horizon and subliminally I am being drawn toward strange alien creatures that want to take over the planet. Who knows, but my latest endeavor was Breeders from 1986, what a blast from the past!

Plot/ The Manhattan General Hospital has admitted a string of young women who have been raped by something otherworldly. The perpetrator only attacks women who are virgins. Dr. Pace and Detective Andriotti work together to try and isolate the strange organic material found on the victims, and to try and locate the fiend. Soon the victims begin arising in a trance and leaving the hospital by an underground passage where their fate awaits them.

After watching this movie, I have come to the conclusion that it was one of the first direct to VHS movies from the 1980s and it definitely had to be before Tipper Gore went crazy won her censorship crusade. Yes, this movie by all accounts is terrible, almost beyond terrible, with horrid acting, lousy special effects and an alien monster that would have made Roger Corman proud. However, with the almost “I want to make porn” feel with the constant variety of naked women and breasts that populate the screen, this movie may deserve some type of cult status. If like me you just read the plot or synopsis, you might think this movie is about aliens. As I soon found out, I was wrong… Yes, there are aliens, and yes, they do attack, but in the end, this movie is about female breasts!
