4.0 out of 5 stars Vixen or Victim ? April 1, 2009
Format:DVD
"Slaughter" was by far the most realistic of all the After Dark Horror Films this year,In My opinion.
If your looking for a Texas Chainsaw Massacre or heavy gore this isn't for you.But if your looking for a film that's thought provoking, thrilling and heart wrenching it is for you.

I won't recount the story you can read the synopsis for that what I will give you is the lowdown on what I thought of it as a slasher /horror fan. As a general rule I LOVE gore and blood but I must admit I was pulled into this story while not seeing any of this for the first hour or so

granted I would have liked to have seen some but it wasn't needed.There were some very tense scenes towards the climax where I gritted my teeth and winced.It does have that gritty torture porn feel to it ,in the way it's filmed and presented,If your squeamish about teeth and pliers it will give you some thrills.

The whole pig farm combined with the what lies in the bottom of the lake thing is pretty chilling as well.It also has a great fight for survival sequence where the power struggle goes back and forth for awhile so you never know who is really going to win until it happens.All in all I though it was one of the best this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Abuse is the Deepest Cut of All January 13, 2009
Format:DVD
This is going to sound strange, but I think the reason I liked "Slaughter" is because it's not an endless succession of gore. This will probably disappoint some, and I agree that the title is very misleading; it's not a sleazy exploitation film, but a slow, tense psychological drama that actually bothers to tell a story. Granted, it's not very plausible, and I have a hard time buying into the fact that it was "inspired by true events." But what it lacks in credibility it makes up for in both style and character development. It a deliberately paced film, director Stewart Hopewell opting to let the story unfold gradually before letting the final twenty minutes or so go at full speed. This doesn't always work, but here it allows the audience to take everything in, especially when it comes to the dialogue given to the two leads; I won't give you a list of quotes, but if you pay attention, you'll notice that what they say to each other is ultimately very telling.

The tension builds as a direct result of the opening credit sequence, which uses clever camera angles and lighting effects to reveal that an injured, bound woman is being dragged through a field. When the woman and her abductor arrive at a dock, the abductor ties a cinderblock to the woman's ankles and pushes her into a lake. If you think I just gave away a crucial plot point, think again; there's more to "Slaughter" than meets the eye.

That's when the story slows down and backtracks. We're introduced to Cathy (Antonia Bernath), a young woman who just left her abusive boyfriend to start a new life in Atlanta. One night, she and her friend, Faith (Amy Shiels), celebrate at a local nightclub; out of the corner of her eye, Cathy notices another young woman who looks like she's being hassled by a man.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Blood Splattered Bride!!!! May 12, 2009
By Damien
Format:DVD
"Slaughter," is a very interesting and intriguing movie. The movie is about Faith, a young woman who is trying to rebuild her life after abruptly leaving her abusive boyfriend. To elude her abuser, Faith moves out of town, changes her phone number, and distances herself from her friends. During this transition, she meets Lola, a seemingly innocent small town girl. Faith quickly befriends Lola and becomes her roommate at her family's farm. Soon, Faith meets Lola's family and becomes the central piece of a diabolical scheme.

"Slaughter," is one of the films featured in the Horrorfest 2009 series. This movie is very predictable but at the same time, it is very intriguing. I definitely recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Dare You to Step Inside the Slaughterhouse September 11, 2012
Format:DVD
Slaughter was released to theaters back in 2009 as part of the After Dark Horrorfest III (aka 8 Films to Die For). As of writing this review, it is only the second After Dark movie I have viewed.

The film opens up with a twenty-something Faith (played Amy Shiels) arriving in Atlanta and leaving her small town life, her horrible mother, and her abusive ex-boyfriend. At a nightclub, she meets a twenty-something Lola (played by Lucy Holt), who is care-free type person. They chat and exchange numbers.

Just as Faith starts to adjust to the city life, she receives dozens of hateful emails from her ex-boyfriend. Not having anyone to turn to, she befriends Lola, who lives outside of Atlanta on her family farm with her father and brothers. Faith moves out of the city after she recognizes her ex's truck parked near her apartment and she ends up living with Lola in the upstairs part of the barn that has been turned into an apartment.

Lola lives a wild life; letting rich older men buy her stuff in exchange for a one night stand. The men are always gone by the time Faith gets up in the morning, but then she notices strange things. One of the men left his watch behind and Faith finds a set of car keys in the weeds.

Faith finds it odd that Lola doesn't talk to her father, who spends most of his time near the hogs' slaughterhouse. She starts to wonder if these men Lola has been dating are really leaving in the mornings or is something else happening to them.

One day while nobody is looking, Faith slips into the slaughterhouse and unlocks the backroom. What she finds might just end her life?

I had absolutely no expectations when I started watching this movie, in which I had never heard of before.

Do you ever go to a movie in the theater any more?
I still go to the theater to see movies. A few times I have seen 3 movies in one day. The experience of seeing a movie in a dark movie theater is way more enjoyable than just watching it on TV. I'm one of the few who still just has a regular TV and still use a VCR, that's right a VCR. If I... Read More
