I Have Seen This Storyline Many Times, 24 June 2008
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

While driving to Las Vegas with his college friends Rachel (Catherine Wreford), Liz (Tiffany Kristensen), Atlanta (Ashley Rebecca Hawkins), Sophie (Myiea Coy) and Adam (Tom NageL), the selfish and wealthy Mark (Alan Ritchson) decides to take a shortcut. Mark stresses with the driver of an old tow truck, and suddenly he sees a woman crossing the road and has a serious car accident. His friend Liz dies, and Mark and Adam run after the girl, who is wounded. The group decides to seek help while Atlanta stays with the severed body of Liz in the car. They find an old house in the woods where a family of psychopaths lives and they are chased by the insane family.

One that reads my summary above would immediately recalls "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Hills Have Eyes", "Wrong Turn", "Timber Falls", "House of Wax", "Wolf Creek", "House of 1000 Corpses" and probably another dozen rip-offs of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and remakes. Therefore, there is no originality in the predictable plot. However, the unknown cast has many young actors and actresses and their performances are not bad. I agree that this routine of repeating and repeating the same storyline is annoying, but "The Butcher" has qualities and is not as bad as mentioned in many reviews. As an incentive to the young cast, my vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Açougueiro" ("The Butcher")
