Movie Info

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

The Slaughter (Jay Lee, 2006) Jay Lee followed up The Slaughter, his anemic sophomore (and sophomoric) effort, with Zombie Strippers! in 2008. Since many, many more people have seen that one, I think it rates as a good comparison; if you found that movie groanworthy, you're going to hate this. Lee takes the usual tack towards making a horror-comedy-slap a bunch of stereotyped characters together and give them something aimed at killing them all off. Which often works, if you're going to do something interesting and creative with the stereotypes, interesting and creative with the killer, or interesting and creative with the murders. Not much of any of the three here, though I have to admit the comic timing actually started working in about the final fifteen minutes of the movie. Until then, the only excuse to keep watching it is that the cast is chock full of drop dead gorgeous ladies who seem to be allergic to clothing. Not that there's anything wrong with that. **

I'm not sure who I hate more: the idiots who thought the finished product was a passable film, or myself for sitting through it. I've seen better films in high school classes. The acting is nonexistent, the production is terrible, there's no discernible plot... AWFUL.

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.
