Trivia

In December 2012, 'Slaughter Is The Best Medicine' was accepted by a U.S. distributor who was set to release the film internationally. But in the wake of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, it was agreed that the timing was wrong to promote the film. The violent title and narrative was judged to be too challenging at a time when people were coming to terms with real life events. See more »

What a top bit of con marketing!!
13 May 2014 | by jagged-shardSee all my reviews

Seeing the packaging at supermarket with guy dressed in SpecOps gear with urban background. On rear of packaging showed troops repelling from Chinook helicopter. Imagine how disappointed I was to find none of these things in the "film"!! The plot - wafer thin and implausible. The staging - all within a ruined house with wooded grounds. The characters - never likely to have worked as a team. The acting, I consider , to have been very amateurish - more akin to to something put on in a church hall. Sorry guys, I cannot find it in me to be very charitable as it just fell too short of the mark. All in all, I feel I have been conned. There are way too many of this style of ripoff films around and we need to vote with our feet!!
