Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A mongrel killer-dog movie that takes us back to ‚~Cujo‚(TM) territory, where Man‚(TM)s Best Friend turns into his most ferocious enemy."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"So-bad-it‚(TM)s-actually-quite-good teen scream from horror master Wes Craven."
‑ Johnny Vaughan, Sun Online
"Dogs swimming aren't scary."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Characters so obnoxious you literally will them to die."
‑ Jamie Russell, Film4
"The Breed is not going to break any new horror or killer dog subgenre standards. As it stands, it is an acceptable time killer that won't challenge or offend."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"All the stunt work involving the dogs is quite good."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"There hasn‚(TM)t been a decent killer dog movie since 1983‚(TM)s Cujo and The Breed doesn‚(TM)t break the run."
‑ , Daily Mirror [UK]
"Despite the presence of Wes Craven as a producer, this is really a pretty unscary effort."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"The script is at times, laughable, and generally it's the four-legged actors putting in the best performances."
‑ ,
"Don't go down to the basement, you idiot, there's a slavering hound waiting to attack you."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"A bargain basement effort that‚(TM)s about as scary as a rabbit with an ingrown toenail."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"The Breed is all bite."
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"A lightweight teen horror that only breaks from the formula when it comes to the less-than-terrifying predator."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
