Storyline

Faith is a young woman who is on the run from an abusive boyfriend, and who settles in Atlanta to make a new life for herself. While settling down, Faith meets Lola, a free spirited young woman who lives on a nearby rural farm with her family - her distant father, older brother, and younger brother. Faith moves in with Lola, who resides in the nearby barn on the farm, to help out with farm work. Every night, the two young women go into the city to party, and Lola brings home a different man to be with. But when the men start disappearing, Faith begins to suspect that Lola's family is killing the strangers in the nearby slaughter house they keep on the farm, and her quest for the truth uncovers some very disturbing facts about Lola's childhood that she seeks to keep a secret at ANY cost.

solid movie
5 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really solid entry in the after dark library inspired by a true story. The film centers on a young woman running from her abusive past and settles down with a new girl she meets on her family farm. But suspicious events begin to take place and disturbing family secrets are revealed culminating to a truly nightmarish outcome. Slaughter feels a little lifetime movieish at times but it really does excel the standard clichés of its storyline. The film feels intimate almost to the point that I'm not sure that I'd wanna meet Stewart Hopewell. It rides the same line of suspense as the strangers but delivering a little more bang for your buck. It's slightly slow moving but suspenseful and the performances are believable. It really is a little gem more of a psychological thriller than a straight out horror film the film will surely leave you creeped out when it's far over.
