Told entirely through two POV video cameras, "The Butcher" throws you abruptly into the middle of chaos and death: a handful of people have been abducted and lie blooded and bound on the floor of a rotting slaughterhouse. Nearby, a team of snuff film producers are discussing their gruesome handiwork: torturing their captives to death, one by one.
This film is unlikely to feature strongly in the South Korean tourist board's marketing materials. Four random people have apparently been kidnapped and taken to an old slaughterhouse, to be killed for a snuff movie. (As a vegan, the irony of that wasn't lost on me; I bet they all ate hundreds of animals during their lifetimes, possibly some killed in that very building.) Actually, you know what? I'm glad they got taken there; they deserved it. Now I realise that statement probably makes me a bit of a sociopath, but I don't care. It's not like I really got to know any of them anyway, not even most of their names. And yes, I appreciate that they were dealing with a few problems and stuff, not least a pig-mask wearing, chainsaw wielding nutter, but some names and a bit of an introduction would still have been nice; I was spending my own personal time waching them being murdered horribly after all, so it was the least they could have done; I might have actually cared a bit about what happened to them then. And maybe it was just me, but that guy who tried to run away, then tried to save his wife, then decided not to, and then ran away again, twice, did get on my nerves a bit. It's true, I was starting to warm to him when he was doing his best to get the bad guys to let her go, but honestly, as soon as he had part of his hand cut off with a chainsaw he totally gave up trying. (I'm glad he got his foot caught in that bear trap too.) I'm sure that's probably grounds for a divorce.
This film also gave me a bit of a headache. All those handheld (or head-mounted to be more accurate) camera shorts; it feels like I've just gone three rounds with Mike Tyson, on a roller coaster.
So what's good? Well, the director's phone call from his mother showed a bit of imagination; and there's a classic 4 second screen scream from one of the women victims too, at around the 18:25 mark.
Recommended for militant vegetarians and fans of pointless torture porn.
No cats and no decapitations.
Best badass moment? I have to admit defeat here. There wasn't one. A bit like the plot really.
