The Butcher (Edward Gorsuch, 2006)

And here we have, yes, another young-and-beautifuls-go-to-an-old-scary-house-and-get-massacred movie. Bad acting. Increasingly-common variation on old horror movie rule (instead of straight kids having sex, there's a pair of lesbians, who must, of course, suffer gruesome ends-- this isn't a spoiler, as the first occurs in the extended opening scene. So the lesbian must die even before they encounter the guy who does the massacring. Silly, anyone?). Awful, awful script. Incredibly predictable plot twist. Yeah, there's really nothing good to say about this movie. Some wag on the IMDB boards called it (forgive my paraphrasing) a bad remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre combined with a bad remake of The People Under the Stairs, and he's right. *

wasn't great, but wasn't terrible for a typical backwoods slasher movie where a group of teens go to the scary farm house and get picked off one by one. It had me feeling for the characters and cringing in a couple places.

Simply put, folks, if you're looking for B-Grade horror that can be simultaneously enjoyed and ridiculed, this has it all. Completely awesome from beginning to end, this small budget horror flick doesn't disappoint while disappointing.

When four scantily clad, early twenty-something chicks, a spineless fratboy, and a "two popped collar"-cool douchetastic jock take a dirt road "detour" on their way to a graduation celebration in Vegas, it's only a matter of time before the inbred freak (who looks like Vulva-Head from Total Recall) in a 5-ton truck shows up.

Probably conceived on a bar napkin, there isn't much in the way of script originality. The cinematography is dark, which is good, I guess. Acting-wise the cast is relatively vanilla and horrible, but Alan Ritchson (Blue Mountain State) shines through at the beginning with an over the top Stifler impersonation; he's actually quite hilarious at times.

All boxes get checked in this Wrong Turn,

Campy teen thriller/killer slasher movie using post college grads and twice as bad plot twists with sub par acting. Unless you're into B movies, it's best to stay far, FAR away from this waste of a movie.

like all the other one star reviews do not waste your time like i did watching this garbage in some aspects again garbage like this makes the horror movie genre die each time movies like this and i use the term movies lightly are made. its like going to the video store of the hay day of the VHS Horror Movies section like this cool cover but the contents ie movie is just a waste of time again garbage i have better words to name this but i will not use foul language what ever happened to the days of old where the writers / directors were creative now it all seems to be about making money instead of ART again do not waste your time on this GARBAGE Amazon should make this a paid rental or better yet take it off and put on great horror movies for people who have prime membership

"The Butcher" is a low-budget slasher flick along the same lines as "Wrong Turn" although "Wrong Turn" is clearly superior than this trash, albeit, that does not say much. In a sense, "The Butcher" tries to be a mixture of "Wrong Turn" and the the remake of TCM. The kills aren't that great and are indicative of a low budget horror flick, there is zero horror movie atmosphere, and the acting is below average for this type of flick. Also, much of the action, these characters (including the killers) and the storyline are all just plain stupid!!! Very immature horror movie here...defintely one for the teenagers although I would not let me teenager watch this trash if I had one. All of these flaws make for a movie that simply is not worth a cuss, and that's my main complaint (along with the overly-retarded ending of course-they actually outdid themselves with that).

Horror fans,don't be fooled! Notice how most if not all the good reviews on this page are written by reviewers who only have one review in the catalog. That normally is a tell tale signal that it was reviewed by someone who was involved with making the film. That must be the case here because the movie I watched was so aweful that no armcheer reviewer in there right mind would give this piece of trash anything more than the one star they are forced to give here at amazon. This is the type of flick that makes any respectible horror fan cringe with anger & makes you wish that you had the little bit of money these folks had to make this mess 'cause anybody with half a brain and a chunk of imagination could have come up with somthing ten times better. There are plenty of backwoods horror films (both low-budget straight to dvd and big screen) that are light years better than this useless waste of time,$ and space. It isn't even a "SO BAD IT'S GOOD" goof-fest. This is just a sad insult to horror fans so don't be fooled by the phony good reviews.
