Storyline

In 1989, the boy Martin Bristol has congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA), a rare neural disorder, in which the patient does not feel pain, heat or cold. He is abducted by the deranged serial-killer Graham Sutter (Brett Rickaby) and brought to the Sutter Meat & Poultry, an abandoned meat-packing plant in Minersville, Pennsylvania, where Graham slaughters young women that he kidnaps. Five years later, the stubborn seventeen year-old teenager Allison Miller loses her parents and moves to the house of her uncle Jonathan Miller that is located near to the decrepit plant. Jonathan, his wife Karen and their little daughter Wendy welcome Allison, but the teenager does not give much attention to her new family. Allison likes to run alone on the road and she passes by the meat-packing plant and then she meets the mechanic William "Billy" and has a crush on him. Jonathan advises Allison to avoid running near the old factory and Billy, who is a problematic teenager. Allison ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Mean-spirited and unoriginal
1 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Apparently BEREAVEMENT is the prequel to another slasher flick, MALEVOLENCE, although I haven't seen that film. Not that I'm missing much, as this turns out to be the most routine horror film ever. The story tells of a guy in a 'creep van' who rides around abducting young women and murdering them in an abandoned slaughterhouse. There's a twist involving the killer's abduction of a small boy who he plans to make his apprentice, but it's hardly much of a twist; the ending is predictable from a mile off. So what do we have in a film devoid of originality, interesting characters, and entertainment value?

The answer is Michael Biehn. The TERMINATOR star plays the supporting role of the heroine's uncle, proving solid amongst a mix of humdrum acting turns. Although, I have to say, that Alexandra Daddario stands out (for a couple of prominent reasons) as a modern-day scream queen, playing virtually the same role here as her later one in Texas CHAINSAW 3D. The actor playing the villain is weak, though, and the kill scenes are vicious, mean-spirited and unappetising, with little of merit for anyone who's seen anything even halfway similar.
