Movie Reviews

More of a dark comedy than anything
John Doe | SOMEWHERE | 10/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Me personally i think this movie rules,but like i said in my title its more of a dark comedy than a horror film.The storyline is about this guy who owns a slaughterhouse that the city is trying to condemn,well him and his 300 pound son (who snorts like a pig instead of talk,and basically is a pig except in human form) decide to get revenge on the ones that are trying to condemn it.In no way is this a tcm ripoff,why is it that if any movie has even a small family that kills people it automatically rips off tcm? Whatever though,i mean if u are looking for a high class horror film that isnt low budget than dont buy this. But if you like independent horror/slasher films that are quite funny as well as semi gory(or if your a sucker for cheesy 80s slasher films) than by all means i reccomend it."
Dont mess with the Hogs

"What a great movie . Buddy has a meat cleaver and he is not afraid to use it , when teens mess with his hogs . Not to mention the bankers forclosing on the slaughter house . This is a great 80's horror gem , and a must for any collection ."

"I won't bother going into the plot, it's all been said. I will say if you are a fan of 1980's horror, this is for you!A fun film about a now defunct slaughterhouse owner, his interesting son (who can't talk, he only makes pig noises) and the people trying to get him to sell his slaughterhouse to a guy who's only interest is profits from selling bad pork.The death scenes are good and sometimes very funny. The acting at times is very cliche' for 1980's, but still fun."
Nice and fun

"Buddy lives with his father, the two of them run an old Slaughterhouse but Buddy is a little bit of a retard. When people mess with Buddies hogs, they get butchered. Then a group of busness people warn Buddy's father that they are going to tear down the slaughterhouse, the two hatch a plan, the bring them in and then butcher them one by one. Also a bunch of teenagers plan to make a horror movie in the Slaughterhouse as well. Slaughterhouse is a nice slasher movie that came out in the late 80s. The killer Buddy runs around with some sort of Axe/Meat cleaver and he sure knows how to use it but that isn't the only weapon used as lots of items come into play. The plot is nothing special it's your basic kill kill kill movie but there is a sense of fun here. Slaughterhouse is not a movie to be taken to seriously, I know the makers didn't. There is lots of gore but probably nit as much as you might think of from a film with the title of Slaughterhouse. The only problems with Slaughterhouse is that it tends to be a little bit slow at times and the ending is really bad but other then that this is great."
