In Manhattan young women are being viciously raped by an alien creature whom can appear as anyone. In several of the cases the victims were accosted my a trusted male friend. The women are left traumatized and suffering a strange form of memory loss, covered in their own vaginal blood and a black seminal fluid left behind by the rapey creature from another world. Investigating the growing number of strange rapes are Dr. Gamble Pace (Teresa Farley, Bad Girls Dormitory)  and Detective Dale Androtti (Lance Lewman), two of the more wide-eyed and awful actors in recent memory. Lewman is way too young to be a detective while the big-haired Farley delivers her lines with the conviction of an oak plank, you can just imagine a cue card being held just off screen as she blankly reads the dialogue, so thankfully gay-porn director Tim Kincaid (Robot Holocaust) stuffs the movie with copious amounts of nudity. Each of the women of are raped in short order by the vinyl-gloved, bug-eyed alien, and the set-up for each attack are straight-up ridiculous, my favorite being when a model undresses and performs a 10-minute nude stretching exercise before the alien arrives for some forced-love intimacy. 

The performances from the cast are uniformly awful, but the pretty faces and copious amounts of nudity do make up for these shortcomings. About every ten minutes or so there's a woman on screen in various states of undress, they're interrupted by a male friend who hideously transforms into the bug-eyed alien, the women are raped and for the next ten minutes the doc and the detective try to figure out what the fudge is happening to the women of Manhattan, piecing together that all the victims were virgins at the time of the attacks.

The finale takes place in the sub-basement of the hospital near on an abandoned track of NYC subway where the victims have congregated, drawn to the location as if under alien-hypnosis. They're nude and gathered in a knee-deep nest of alien cum,the women are aggressively slathering the milky white fluid over their bodies while posing with a look on their faces that falls somewhere inbetween confusion and seduction, very silly stuff. The gore, like everything else in the movie, is way cheap but fun, I loved the toothy vagina-faced hybrid alien that appears towards the end of the movie, it is only slightly worse than the bug-eyed alien seen throughout the movie, this is one of those movies that is so poorly made that it ends up being charming at the end of the day. Breeders (1986) is an awful movie, a slice of b-movie trash loaded with nudity and corny sci-fi horror elements, if you love bad cinema this is a gleeful blast of awfulness straight outta the eighties. 

Audio/Video: The b-movie shit fest Breeders arrives on Blu-ray for the first time from distributor Olive Films and it looks surprisingly crisp in HD! Skin tones are a little on the cooler side but there's some nice fine detail and modest depth to the image, it can be a bit on the grainy side during the night scenes, but I love me some grain, and I will take it over an aggressive digital-scrubbing any day of the week.  The English language DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio is solid, coming through clean, crisp and nicely balanced through and through. The only extra on the disc is an HD trailer for the movie. while it is a bare-bones disc Olive have won me over with the quality A/V presentation.  

Special Features:
- Trailer (2 Mins) HD 

This is a classic b-movie shit fest from the eighties, an awful alien-rape movie loaded with copious amounts of nudity, wooden acting and low-grade gore. If you have a craving for eighties schlock cinema this one delivers the goods through and through, a must-own for b-movie fans of sci-fi schlock and rapey alien terror. 2/5
