Last night was a strange night for flicks in the house. I started the evening with the entertaining indie picture The Shrine. While it had a solid story and some interesting moments, the same cannot be said for my second selection, the 2005 low budget flick, The Slaughterhouse Massacre.
Plot/ Marty Sickle was accused of murdering a young girl inside the slaughterhouse where he lived. Soon after, four college kids brutally hung Marty in revenge.
I love low budget cinema, but I realize it can be a mixed bag. That is exactly what this flick is. OK, not really, it is actually pretty laughable on many fronts, riddles with a clichéd storyline, subpar special effects, an uneven script, and performances that in no way are memorable. In fact, the only entertaining and somewhat memorable attribute of this film is the amount of gratuitous nudity that definitely takes the overall feel back to a cheap 1980s direct to VHS slasher. In the end, this low budget slasher is nothing special and is rather uninspiring. Unless you have no other choices available, stay away!
