When the partying is coming to a close, four girls end up being kidnapped. They wake up in a basement where a man is keeping them tied down until he needs them for his human breeding farm. These young girls are milked and bred...

Our thoughts:
Another jump into a recent Troma title ends up with similar results as most other times. We have a movie that follows formulas most of the time, sometimes strays away from them without any effect and overall just doesn't manage to deliver much outside of today's independent film norm. Which, unfortunately, isn't anything great. As a supporter of independent film it's really a bummer when the end results are usually bad. This is an opening paragraph that gets to the point rather quickly, I realize that, but that's just so you won't need to read the rest!

"Breeding Farm" refers to a rather perverse place, where a man kidnaps women and uses them for milking and breeding. Four girlfriends wake up in his basement and the only things that awaits them is to be part of his twisted business. The girls can't do much but pray that they will stay alive - but what is actually worse?

Essentially we have yet another torture movie here. The movie does differ by focusing on the women being used for breeding, but the basics are the same. There's one thing that I am sure will help some people get through this movie, and that is the amount of nude women in distress. The nudity is certainly more present than the gore, but that's obviously because sex/breeding is the main focus. The movie was more perverse than I expected it to be, but that doesn't mean we have a good movie on our hands. It just feels like another repeat viewing, and those are never fun. They are even less fun to review, if I'll be honest. There's just a limited amount of times you can say the same things.

The actors keep themselves up fairly well considering. It's certainly better than some similar movies. The main bad guy might not be anything memorable, but he's definitely sleazy and acts the part. The women mostly cry with something shoved into their mouths (not THAT, you pervert!) so it's not easy to judge the acting. For what it is, it's not too bad.

I don't have much else to say about "Breeding Farm". In short, it's perverse but not effective. It lacks a lot of punch and the overall production is about as bland as the movie itself. There's a lot of nudity in the movie, some rape and various "breeding" scenes, but yet again that doesn't help it very far. I'd be surprised at myself if I remember much about this movie this time next year. Though it isn't the worst of recent Troma titles, so maybe it could be worth a watch to that one guy out there who just loves the majority of bad new Troma!

Positive things:
- Decent acting, minus a few actors.
- Has a few ideas that made it a bit sleazy.

Negative things:
- Lacks originality. The little it has is just a tiny step and not nearly enough.
- Nothing spectacular about the production overall.
- The most memorable thing about it is naked girls, and I can see that in better movies.

Gore: 1/5
Nudity: 3.5/5
Story: 1/5
Effects: 1.5/5
Comedy: 0.5/5
