Movie Info

A mob enforcer is set up to take the fall for a multi-million dollar heist involving a rival gang boss. Merle (Eric Roberts) is a gambler stuck on a twenty-year losing streak, but his luck is about to change. Surviving a trap that was intended to kill him, Merle makes away with a beautiful woman and a piece of the take. Most men in that position would have been content to simply walk away with their lives, but Merle has been loyal for twenty years. Realizing he's been betrayed, something inside snaps. They used to call him "The Butcher" as a joke, but the laughter turns to screams when Merle returns to deliver the ultimate punchline.

Audience Reviews for The Butcher

  • Apr 14, 2010
    Available on Netflix Instant Watch Well it's certainly bloody! It kicks the shit out of any American torture porn and it does the handheld thing right.Sadly, there's not enough character development to carry the movie, but that isn't really what this genre is about and to my recollection, only the French new wave of horror has gotten character development in torture porn correct anyways. Not any awesome displays of gore effects besides that the blood is nicely colored. I don't hate it, but I can't celebrate it. Fair game for all you torture porn freaks! Most Fucked Up highlight: seeing things from the victim's angle as he is raped by the giant pig-headed butcher
