Movie Giveaway

Tabula Rasa has 10 double passes to give away to the movie Dying Breed.

The competition is now over. Congratulations to all the winners

Tasmania, Australia, the world's most isolated island.

It's rumoured deep within Tasmania's wilderness an ancient species known as the Tasmanian Tiger is alive and breeding.

Yet modern science refuses to believe such a creature now exists since no witnesses have ever been able to prove it.

That is until Zoology student, Nina (Mirrah Foulkes), claims she can breach Tasmania's impenetrable forests and reveal the tiger's existence to be true.

Driving Nina's quest is one critical piece of proof: a paw print taken by her sister just before she met with a fatal accident eight years before.

But what Nina doesn't know is how Tasmania became Australia and the world's most dangerous island in 19th century when the murderous convict Alexander Pearce (aka "The Pieman") broke out of prison only to eat his fellow escapees. Pearce was hung for cannibalism in 1824, but not before he'd spawned a blood line who inherited his taste for human flesh.

Soon Nina and her friends discover that in the wild whilst one species may have died out another has thrived - in the form of the Pieman's descendants. When she sets out with her partner, Matt (Leigh Whannell) and his old mate Jack (Nathan Phillips) and his girlfriend Rebecca (Melanie Vallejo), their little expedition encounters the island's reigning breed, but one who stands on two legs, not four.

The Pieman clan has survived and their need to feed and breed turns Nina, Matt, Jack and Rebecca into the next endangered species.

Release: November 6th, 2008

Director: Jody Dwyer
Cast: Nathan Phillips, Leigh Whannell
