In Manhattan affluent Alex and Leslie Twisden want children, but so far failed to have any.  Leslie suggests adoption, but Alex prefers their DNA.  Researching what is available, Alex learns of the success of fertility specialist Dr. Kis in Slovenia.  Though reluctant, Leslie travels to the European nation with her spouse.  Using animal extractions on the Americans, Dr. Kis manages a miracle when Leslie births twins, Adam and Alice though the two parents suffer horrible side effects.

 

A decade later, the mutant siblings, frightened by the behavior of their cannibalistic parents, run away from home.  Alice and Adam seek Dr. Kis to learn what happened to their parents.  Alex and Leslie follow their children.

 

Over the top of Mount Triglav and with a much darker and gorier nod to the movie Splice and the Wells’ novel Dr. Moreau, Breed is an exciting thriller.  Though Alex’s obsession is never understood, fans who enjoy a fast-paced horror tale will relish this entry; while those with squeamish demeanors will either need to pass or diet.
