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.

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

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

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

Andrew Pulver

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

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

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

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

Shadows on the Wall

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.
