Goofs

When Dr. Obreo / Dr. Butcher is using the medical saw on the girl you can hear it spinning very fast but when you look at the blood stains around the edge of the saw you can see that it is not moving and only moves (very slowly) when he traces around the top of her head. See more »

Quotes

Med Student 1: I bet it was you who chopped that hand off!

Beautiful Film
15 November 2001 | by mmagonetSee all my reviews

A real tearjerker. I laughed so hard I almost cried to death. I watched this film when I was 14 and it really changed my life. It turned me into an extreme horror fan, only to be disappointed with tons of garbage films afterwards that never really compared to The Butcher knife's sharpness. If anyone knows some even better, more gory and obscure films, please let me know. PS Did anyone else get a headache from all of the piercing screaming and sound or was it just me
