With a title like "Slaughter Daughter" you'd probably expect a lot of blood, and you won't be disappointed, but this is far from your usual teen slasher flick, rather it is a disturbing tale of a young woman's madness. Farrah is seriously disturbed; she has a history of doing things to herself she shouldn't, like slicing off one of her fingers and posting it to a serial killer, a truly gruesome scene that. Obviously a bit of poetic licence is needed to visualise how the letter got to him and how she managed to meet him face to face, even if she did know one of guards. His visiting her in her bedroom is unambiguously unreal; it is clear she is delusional as well as a danger to herself, but why does she want to murder her mother, is it just because she is remarrying to a man Farrah does not particularly like, and why must so many others die?
This film scores for originality, but those of a nervous disposition should not watch it. Vampires and murderous apparitions may give us a superficial fright or two, but we know they are not real. An attractive young woman you wouldn't give a second glance except for the usual reasons is a different proposition entirely.
