Kate Glover's gory 'slasher' movie is set during one terrifying night at a remote pub in the Australian outback. When a new worker joins the group of bar staff, the sexual tension starts to rise and so too does the body count, as something horrifying is lurking beneath them in the cellar. Written by
Being a kindly old thing and easily amused, most of my other reviews thus far have been more or less favorable towards low-budget movies that other reviewers have panned. Not this time. Given what they had to work with, the actors and actresses in Slaughtered were mostly adequate. The gore was appetizing. But the plot was extraordinarily confused, inconsistent, and self-contradictory. Even worse, as another reviewer has pointed out, the emotional states of the characters after they had witnessed appalling murders were ridiculous. The chicks, being chicks, of course had bouts of incoherently babbling hysteria, but then they returned to reasonably cheerful barmaid normal. The males sought to keep the terrible things that were going on secret. I'm not sure why, though there was some talk of wanting to protect the bar's reputation. Minor concerns: I doubt that the Australian police are nearly as slow to respond as they were depicted, and also doubt that they would have sent only one officer when phoned about massive bloodshed. The actress whom I felt to be easily the most attractive was one of the first to be Slaughtered. Oh well, the advice that I've given my son is "Ask yourself whether her conversation still be interesting thirty years from now." I know nothing of the actress herself, but in the case of the character she portrayed the answer would clearly be No. All that said, the mask worn by the Slaughterer was excellent.
