Finally. I am FINALLY done with the “Eight Films to Die For!” Thankfully Slaughter wasn’t as bad as most of the other films, but it still wasn’t very good. It’s another psychotic inbreeding hilbilly film though. This time its Southerners instead of Australians though.
Enter Faith - a sweet girl who has moved to the south to escape her abusive ex boyfriend. One night at a bar she meets a young lady named Lola who she strikes up a friendship with. When the ex starts to close in on her, Faith moves in with Lola onto the family farm where they raise pigs, ride horses and occasionally stumble across the remains of a dead body. We soon learn that Lola and her father do not get along and sometimes, Lola is beaten by her father. With the signs of foul play on the farm, Faith thinks that Lola’s family are derranged killers and decided to run away with Lola to save her.
Well it turns out Lola is the psycho killer and her dad smacks her around after finding the latest dead body. He covers for his daughter because he loves her, but still, if spilling grape juice on a white carpet is spank worthy, certaining killing people for their money and cars is worth a bitchslap and a black eye, right? Oh, also Lola claims she went psycho because dady is a pedophile and has naughty picture of young pre-pubescant Lola.
Lola’s plan is now to kill Faith and assume her identity. Oh, and to kill her whole family too so there are no traces back to her previous life. Not a bad plan for an underage would-be redneck.
At this time Faith’s ex boyfriend Jimmy, you know the guy who used to abuse her, finally tracks her down to the farm and now Faith is torn between TWO psychos. One that wants to fuck her and one that wants to be her. Poor Faith.
The movie has some decent acting and there are a few neat twists and turns to the story, but nothing that makes the movie stand out. it was enjoyable for what it was, but at the end of the day, it was a one shot viewing experience rather than a keeper.
IS It Worth Keeping? No
