1.0 out of 5 stars Oh, sorry, I must have been snoring. 12 April 2007

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. *

1.0 out of 5 stars 0 STARS: In all honesty, this is a pretty sorry movie. Sadly, I've seen worse. 5 Mar 2007
By HorrorMan - Published on
"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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 22 Jun 2011

I bought this along with 400 other obscure DVD's when one of our local video retail outlets liquidated, this film is better than the majority of that group.

"The Butcher" (2006) is basically a cut-rate combo of "Wrong Turn" (2003) and "Monster Man" (2003). Oddly, I liked this better than either of those films. Perhaps I tapped into the self-reflexive subtext. My reaction would be more negative if it had been a bigger production, but I tend to give a lot of points for quality production design on a limited budget and every bit of their budget makes it onto the screen.

It looks like they shot the film at Camp Roberts, home of the California Army National Guard. Which would account for the use of the deuce and a half (M35) army truck to parody a bit of the action from "Duel" and "Monster Man".

Don't seek this one out if you are expecting something original in the old familial horror genre (insert: "The American family as demented in-breds who lure victims to a home they have turned into a slaughterhouse" here). And don't expect a lot of well-staged action adventure segments or high-end special effects. And be prepared for another of those tired indestructible villain twists at the end.

Like "Wrong Turn" they make the clueless mistake of killing off their hottest actress first, although at least here they wait until she has taken off her top.

Fortunately Catherine Wreford's tight abs get plenty of screen time for the remainder of the film, so there is still something nice to look at for those who like that sort of thing. Wreford's "Rachel" is a pretty good plucky heroine (certainly better than Eliza Dushku's "Jessie") and handles the scream queen duties quite well. Annie Mackay (who looks a lot like Kristen Stewart) gives an excellent nonverbal performance.

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUTCHERED HORROR 13 Nov 2006
By Michael Butts - Published on
Even fans of this gore-infested movie must be getting tired of the ripoffs of other films of this ilk, like TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACE, HILLS HAVE EYES, etc.

Anyway, ONCE AGAIN, we have this collection of college-age students who are going off on some kind of trip only to be detoured and finding themselves at the mercy of a whacko hillbilly with demented wife and daughter. There is NOTHING original in this movie, and the ending makes no sense since a supernatural undertone was never established so the killer's reappearance is totally unbelievable.

Stay away unless you just like to persecute yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a rental... 26 Aug 2006
By Robert - Published on
I generally enjoy finding horror flicks that are obscure and low budget, and this one was at least better than most. I would never recommend buying it, but it is creepy with some real moments of tension, and a bit bloody. It is, however, riddled with horror cliches and some of the dumbest decions by the characters imaginable. Someone mentioned the darknsess of the film, but I saw it fine. Maybe it's the TV. It gets three stars for what it is, compared to other movies in its genre and budget.
