Slaughterhouse Review


The owner of a slaughterhouse facing foreclosure instructs his obese and mentally disabled son to go on a killing spree against the people who want to buy his property.

I dont even understand why I wanted to see this movie. I usually judge my horror movies by how scary the cover looks. It’s just more fun that way. This movie had absolutely no nudity at all, which is different for a horror movie. A girl flashed her tits but her back was to the camera. The lack of boob was made up for by the amount of gore. Basically, it’s about this old mans slaughterhouse and home being taken away by the town. His dumb son Buddy kills these two horny teenagers for ****ing around with the pigs. His father then suggests he kill the people responsible for him losing the slaughterhouse. He even compliments Buddy on his "good, clean cuts" on the victims bodies. The scene I liked the most was when Buddy chops one of the kids in the face with his huge meat cleaver and blood splatters everywhere, it even squirts out of the ridiculous mask the kids wearing as he lies on the floor. I laughed at how they tortured the last surviving girl. The father talks about how the fingertips are the most sensitive part of the body, and a cut on them would feel worse than a slash across the belly. The guy goes and slices her finger a bit and starts opening and closing the wound, what a jerk. She’s totally screaming her head off. I know it sounds gay, but I also enjoyed the pointless cheesy teen dance sequence. "Slaughterhouse" was an OK movie, but there was no horror-movie tit. What’s up with that?
