[Movie Talk] Paula Breaks Down ‘Butcher Boys’ (Review)


Written by: Paula Limbaugh

Directed by: Duane Graves, Justin Meeks

Cast: Ali Faulkner, Johnny Walter, Derek Lee Nixon

Hmm, Kim Henkel of The Texas Chainsaw franchise, this has to be good right? Well, not exactly. The movie starts of with a lot of promise; action, blood, terror, all the makings of great horror and then something happened, it took a wrong turn. The intensity is there, you can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next and then all of a sudden it takes on the characteristics of a Rocky Horror Picture Show. It’s like “Whaa! Did I miss something?”

Four teens are out celebrating a birthday, when driving home they have a run in with another car, which ends badly when the second car crashes into a parked vehicle belonging to one of the Bone Boys. The Bone Boys who are part of a cannibalistic gang dealing in human flesh, are pissed and out for vengeance and begin hunting down the teens. So far, so good.

So one by one the teens are dealt with, until all that is left is Sissy (Faulkner), for some reason which isn’t very clear, Bossboy (Walter) and his sidekick Benny (Nixon) decide to bring Sissy to meet Doc. Now this is where it begins to get really crazy.

Walking through the inner sanction of Doc’s place, there are girls locked in cages and a weird creature (once a man?) in chains. Why, I don’t know. Doc is like some comedic mad scientist, and and is constantly zapping people with his cattle prod. The scenes just start getting crazier. Sissy manages to escape and meets another off the wall character who is searching for his daughter, for some strange reason she follows him back to Doc’s place and now Doc is wearing a dress. Don’t ask me why! This movie has now become so disjointed, I forgot what I was watching.

Oh yeah, I have to tell you about the boob shots, LMAO! There are a couple of scenes at the beginning of the movie where one of the teens was flashing her tits, only they weren’t hers! I swear it looks like they took a photo of someone’s chest and held it in front of the camera for the 3 or 4 times they needed a boob shot, the same photo!!  And don’t even ask me about the film set, sooo fake! I might have been able to overlook some of this lack of realism if the story was good, but no, they butchered it. Okay, so here’s the deal if you are totally bored and need something to watch, then check this out just to see if you agree with me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t advise wasting your time. I’m not sure if they were aiming for comedic horror or if this just failed, but it could have been so much more.
