Slaughterhouse Rulez review – boarding school comedy-horror

Simon Pegg and Michael Sheen star in a watchable jape that has plenty of charm but not enough scares

Elite boarding schools have been a favourite microcosm for film-makers to explore over the years: as the crucible of revolution in If…., the breeding ground of spies in Another Country, and the vessel of intellectual liberation in Dead Poets Society. Despite one or two nods and winks (including a picture of If….’s Malcolm McDowell getting plugged in the face with an airgun pellet), this watchable if basically undemanding jape opts to take a very different tack: a teen comedy-horror with little aspiration to make any bigger points other than to chase its group of shrieking and bellowing schoolkids around an educational establishment’s venerable passageways and adjacent woodland.

Strangely enough, the coincidence of the real-world news cycle has given Slaughterhouse Rulez an unlikely topicality: a giant fracking drill in the

‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’ Review: Dir. Crispian Mills (2018)

Slaughterhouse Rulez review: Title ring a bell? It should do and it’s not the only thing about Slaughterhouse Rulez that sounds and looks more than a little familiar. For the first production from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s new company, Stolen Picture, it’s disappointingly derivative and short on the knowing humour that we usually associate with them.

That title echoes Tom Sharpe’s Porterhouse Blue, a satire on Cambridge University life. Here the action is transferred to a posh public school, the Slaughterhouse of the title, one originally for boys but which now admits token girls as well. New boy Don Wallace (Finn Cole) is a fish out of water: he comes from the North of England and his family isn’t wealthy, but he still manages to make friends with room mate Willoughby Blake (Asa Butterfield) and acquire a crush on sixth former,
