Box (Craig Ingham) has been working at the slaughterhouse for decades,
always at the killing floor, never rising in rank, but he prefers it that
way. And thus it's pretty much natural that when the company hires a young
parolee, Nathan (James Mason), Box is asked to take him under his wing.
And Box really takes care of his young colleague - like when Nathan is
bullied, Box slaughters the bully before Nathan's very eyes, and even
hands Nathan a butcher knife to apply a few wounds of his own. Now for
Box, killing just seems to come natural, but Nathan also enjoys it, and so
the two of them go on a low level killing spree, and by keeping their
victims random as can be, they manage to evade suspicion.
not long before frictions occur in their partnership, thanks to Nathan's
girlfriend Tracey (Kristen Condon), who's quite simply freaked out by Box.
But Nathan really calls it quits when during one of their killing trips,
they're forced to shoot a young boy who has witnessed them killing a
couple of campers - and killing children is where Nathan draws the line
(even if the boy would have otherwise reported them to the police). Thing
is, Box is not one to just accept a "no" from Nathan, and now
Nathan has turned his back on Box, nothing's off the table anymore ...
The Slaughterhouse Killer was very obviously made on a modest
budget, and thus is not the most refined of films - but that's something
that goes very well with the movie's rather unforgiving theme. And the
result is a very raw story told in a very direct and unflinching way, and
while the film's not overdoing the gore, the characters attitudes to their
deeds is what's really shocking here. So ultimately, this might not be the
most "fun" serialkiller movie to watch, but if you're in for
something truly disturbing you will for sure be rewarded.
