This has been called a horror film of sorts. It won't scare you, but it might just bore you to death because for the first hour plus it contains pitiful little action. There appears too to have been a half-hearted attempt to infuse some comedy into it. That fails dismally, assuming it was the case.

A man and his imbecile apprentice - apparently a waif he has more or less adopted - run a butcher's shop where on occasion they dispose of bodies from some unspecified criminal entity or organisation. A young deaf mute girl sees, or junior thinks she sees, a body being delivered, and when an idealistic doctor, a newbie in town, decides to teach the girl to communicate, junior decides she must die. This is a kid who can't kill a chicken without trashing the shop, so how can he dispose of a feisty tomboy, even if she can't scream the place down? After kidnapping her, he decides instead to try to appeal to her better nature, assuming a person's better nature includes keeping mum about feeding corpses to the neighbourhood.

Obviously this is not going to end well for the local murder inc; if you want to watch the finale, fast forward, you won't miss anything.
