    Follows the already old cliche of a murderous hick family with human remains scattered all over their farmhouse. Actually, this movie mostly rips off The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it even includes kids in a car, driving through a small town, crashing the car, coming by some tormented woman who "escaped" from the main villains. Oh, there's even a chainsaw scene in this one. Must I describe the movie more? The acting was horrible, the plot was extremely cliched and stupid, the special effects standard for a low budget slasher flick. Maybe the only good thing about this movie are the DVD-cover art and it's tagline, which I must confess were the only reason I even rented this crap.

    Just another stupid rip-off of Wrong Turn and that whole genre of films that stretches back to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The Butcher is only notable for the fact that it's main characters are even more despicable and worthy of dead than most flat horror movie characters.

    En gjeng med dølle ungdommer på vei til Las Vegas roter seg bort uti ødemarken et sted. En av dem blir kuttet i to etter en bizarr ulykke. De øvrige forsøker å finne hjelp. Det viser seg raskt at de har dumpet oppi heimtrakten til en galning av en slakter som ikke har noe imot å få mer menneskekjøtt på kroken. Joda. Likhetene til Motorsagmassakren er der. Men dessverre er dette et makkverk av en film. Elendig skuespill, håpløse karakterer og mange logiske brister ødelegger alt. Når du kommer til et stort hus midt i huttaheita, med gjenspikrede vinduer, tror du da virkelig at her bor det normale folk? At her er det hjelp å få?? Hæ?? Dette blir aldri skummelt eller stygt, bare kjedeligt og atter kjedeligt. Bare moren til Slaktern kan få godkjent her, hun er herlig supergal. Stjeler skamløst fra en rekke filmer uten å tilføre denne i utgangspunktet fine sjangeren noen ting som helst. Huff nei.

    Typical crap horror movie with unnecessary foul language, teens SUV breaks down in a "hills have eyes" type situation. Wrong Turn was better, watch that instead.

    There are a lot of things to be said about this movie... none of them are good. My biggest gripe with horror movies today is that most of them are either remakes, updates, sequels, or derivative to the nth degree, this one is no different. The Texas Chain, I mean The Butcher follows the story of a couple of young college students on their drive to a nice vacation in... I think Vegas, but it doesn't matter. They're driving down a country road when a scary deformed man in a truck pulls up to them. So what do they do when they see this unbelievably stock farmer gives them a cold stare? Well they start flashing him of course. Unfortunately the farmer has geniously planned a way to get them to crash their car, distract them long enough to run over some barbed wire, and pop all their tires... oh and drive into a low hanging tree tipping a topless girls upper body off (which is unacceptably impossible). Things get worse when the decide to follow the road instead of going back the way they came. They stumble upon a farm and a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere... and don't think twice about snooping around. Long story short, the family living on the farm turns out to be cannibals, the jerk dies, the black girl dies, the nerdy white guy dies, the white girl escapes in a fiery explosion that is somehow caused by one nearly empty gas canister, and the movie ends with a traditional cliffhanger. This movie blows. I'm usually soft on these low-budget horror flicks, but this one wasn't even trying. The effects were awful, the acting was unfathomably bad, the camera work was boring, the story was derivative (in a bad way), the ending was awful, the music and overall sound design was torture on the ears, the sets were stock, the kills were not frightening in the least, and above all else, the movie was called the butcher, but it was about a farmer! Don't watch this movie, it's pure evil.
