Critic Reviews for Butchers

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Despite Phillips' cleaver-wielding swagger... Butchers is pretty much dead meat, an amalgam of worn-out tropes unsuccessfully zombified to life.

Top Critic

While it won't win any awards for originality, it's a fun watch for those with a stomach and in the mood for another 'hillbillies with a cannibal brother' flick.

March 9, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

One to watch if you really, really wish there were more hillbilly horror films, or if you have a bingo card of horror tropes handy. Otherwise, not.

February 18, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A gory trudge through horror tropes, entirely lacking in any sense of gleeful malevolence or gritty thrills. Damningly, it just sort of exists.

February 17, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Butchers is watchable, but it really doesn't bring anything new to the genre so some fans may be disappointed if the synopsis drew them in.

December 14, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Butchers has some interesting new ideas and pushes the genre into some exciting directions. It tries hard to rise above its genre cliches, but doesn't quite succeed.
