Bikers tangle with the spirits of the dead in this genre mashup from the writing and directing team the Butcher Brothers.

It's one of those movies that belongs in an incinerator rather than a cinema.

Gore blimey!

The acting is abysmal, and the gloating depiction of violence is hard to take, unless you're extremely thick and perverted.

A glutinous slasher flick that tries to conjure the spirit of the Evil Dead movies, but doesn't get anywhere near the required levels of wit and dexterity.

It boasts more than its share of "WTF!?" moments in the third reel, but it's not enough to salvage an otherwise tedious film that's thin on charm and thrills.

A curious concoction of blood, beer, babes and biker ghosts.

The fact that filmmakers Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores call themselves the Butcher Brothers tells you what to expect from this film. But as the plot twists and turns, we never have a clue where it's going.

A lack of consistent tone means it all ends up a bit of a mess.

The Violent Kind has a nice central idea and a few decent exploitation moments but it gradually degenerates into a chaotic, badly acted mess delivered at full volume.

July 20, 2011 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Poorly scripted and confusingly plotted, it plays like a deranged demo reel.

[tries to be tricky, but] at the end of the day it is still torture porn.

Audience Reviews for The Violent Kind

Bikers party at an isolated house, but a scarier, even more violent force is lurking in the woods outside. Grindhouse-style pic starts as a plodding EVIL DEAD-style grind but picks up when the devil-worshiping alien rockabilly ghosts show up; if the energy of the last third had been spread out through the entire movie, it would have been an above average horror.

Abysmal. People who watch this movie should have to answer an exit poll, and anyone who says they liked it gets exiled to a remote rocky island. The common wisdom is that no horror film loses money - let us pray The Violent Kind is the first so the Butcher brothers are never allowed to make another. Takes an early yet commanding lead for Worst Film I Have Seen In 2012.
