The Slaughter (2006)
In the tradition of the Evil Dead series comes this occult horror comedy from director Jay Lee. When a group of college students take a job cleaning an old house, they expect little more than a few extra bucks in their pockets. But when they discover an ancient book of spells, they get far more than they bargained for. Before long, an unspeakable evil is unleashed and the bodies begin to pile up.

Audience Reviews for The Slaughter
Jay Lee obviously didn't know what he wanted The Slaughter to be so he just copied loads of bits from other horror films. The result is a real mess and It fails in everything it tries to achieve. He obviously had a good budget too (unlike Evil Dead which is an obvious influence), the special effects are good in places, it's just a shame that the script couldn't have been so polished as it is this and the awful acting that really lets it down. The attempts at humour towards the end of the film are excruciating. Time to decide Jay Lee, do you want to be a porn director or a horror director, necrophilia isn't particularly sexy! Avoid this one.More
Really bad acting, Secial Effects\make up, (although the spirits did look pretty awesome,) a major rip off from The Evil Dead, everything about it is bad. This is definitely a B-movie, and a good one, too. The story was actually good, and some scenes are somehow scary. Really bad, but I still liked it.More
