“Pyromaniacs will undoubtedly love the zillions of explosions in this film, and people who have a Jack Scalia jumping fetish will go orgasmic as well.” - Something Awful

"This movie was so epic that when it came out on VHS, the tape was green! It’s like the Dark Breed possessed the videotape itself!” - Monster Hunter Reviews

Explosions. Aliens. Gore. Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks as an outer space lizard. Cars flipping. More explosions. A dude who turns his hat backwards BEFORE he fires a rocket launcher. Man-in-Suit Monsters. Defenestration. Did we say explosions? Yea, there’s a lot of explosions in this movie. Welcome to PM Entertainment, welcome to Dark Breed.

The biggest budget film released by the action connoisseurs at PM ENTERTAINMENT, Dark Breed plays like an insane mix of The Hidden, Terminator 2 and Aliens all thrown in a blender and set to MAXIMUM DUMB.

It’s a sci-fi blow-em-up about a an astronaut/super awesome dude named Nicholas Saxon (Jack Scalia) who discovers that his wife and best friend (Jonathan Banks!) has returned to earth after a super-secret space mission, turning him and his team into evil brain sucking monsters.

It’s up to Saxon and his friends from the ‘Omega Agency’ to load up to the guns and start blowing up EVERYTHING that gets in their way. And we do mean everything. Those aliens don’t stand a chance.

Dark Breed is the ultimate STRAIGHT TO VIDEO action film. It’s big, dumb, and so desperate to entertain an audience that it has absolutely no shame.
