Not Bad, But Nothing New
17 January 2021 | by MLBrennan96See all my reviews

"Butchers" is nothing new to fans of horror, but it did have potential.

The acting ranged from alright to great, mostly thanks to our antagonists. Visually it was very appealing and the gore was decent when it was used. There were a few "Jumpscare" moments, but also some genuine moments of shock.

The writing was a mixed bag. There are some great character moments, but I think the script could have used some more work, especially the ending. The ending was kind of abrupt and just made me think "Oh...so is that it? Alright".

For a casual viewer who is not well-versed in the horror genre I'd give it a try. It's not a bad watch and might get you interested in some other films that are similar. For the more hardcore horror lovers it's nothing you haven't seen before, but still a good way to spend a night at home.
