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.

Disappointing Conclusion with Successive Twists
9 January 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Faith (Amy Shiels) head to Atlanta with her friend Cathy (Antonia Bernath) fleeing from her abusive and violent boyfriend Jimmy (Vance Daniels). During the night, they go to a night-club to celebrate the beginning of a new life for the needy and vulnerable Faith, and she helps the girl Lola (Lucy Holt) that is harassed by her date. Faith and Lola become friends and Lola invites Faith to move to her house, in a farm nearby the city where she lives with her father that she is not close and two brothers. When Jimmy calls Faith, she accepts the invitation and moves to the farmhouse. Sooner she becomes curious with the slaughterhouse close to the barn that is always locked and realizes that Lola brings different men to spend the night with her, but they vanish in the morning. Faith decides to snoop the slaughterhouse disclosing a dark secret about Lola and her weird family.

"Slaughter" has a promising story but a disappointing conclusion with successive twists. The unusual attitudes of the characters in the mouse- and-cat game and coincidences in the plot ruin what could be a good movie. The police never comes while Faith has the chance to drive her trunk away from the evil farm and then she has the whole situation under control that reverts too many times for my taste. The unknown Lucy Holt and Amy Shiels are very beautiful and talented actresses and I look forward to see them again. My vote is six.
