Drawing on classic horror movie plot devices such as a haunted house, an ancient book with mysterious powers, a mad professor, and a group of college kids, BUTCHERED is a traditional chiller which still manages to pack a frightening punch. A group of fraternity brothers and sorority sisters head out to a spooky house to indulge in some hazing activities. However, a demented professor is wise to their activities, and utilises some verses from an ancient book to control the actions of some of the students. Gradually working his way through the hapless kids, the professor sets out to murder them one by one, until the survivors stumble across his activities, and realise what he's up to. Not knowing who the deviant scholar is controlling, the kids can't decide who to trust, leading to further mayhem and blood-letting as the film winds to its brutal conclusion.
