Goofs

At the very beginning of the film, Slaughter's father is seen sitting in his car, turns the key, and it explodes. The entire car is engulfed in flames, which shoot 20 feet into the air; the camera lingers on the inferno. The very next scene, we see Slaughter sitting in the ER. The doctor comes out of surgery and tells him that his father didn't make it. I'll say...the man was cremated. See more »

Bad acting, worse plot
9 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm all for 1970s low-budget exploitation films but Slaughter failed to satisfy. The plot, if there is one, is confused, as if the first reel was missing. After Billy Preston's lame theme song you are dropped into the middle of a confusing story about the mafia, or maybe Mexican mobsters, who kill star Brown's parents in the first 10 seconds. Why? I still don't know. Something about a computer. From there the tale meanders with little action and some really bad acting. That can be forgiven if the film is at least a little fun but there's not much of that either.Brown's 'Hell Up in Harlem" is a lot more fun and makes a lot more sense.
