Plot Summary:
"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."

UK label Hard Gore managed to release this tale of sorority sisters in peril in an abandoned haunted house attraction, despite the fact that Director Joe Castro has never even seen the finished product.

The film which was written by Eric Spudic has an attractive cast of low budget regulars who are forced to endure a night of terror inside the disused attraction, when they discover that local legend Rebecca Epstein is still very much alive, and this girl is one bloodthirsty bitch!!

The effects as always are excellent for such a low budget, thanks to Joe Castro's expertise in the field, and they don't hold back on blood and gore.

Male viewers (and even some females) will no doubt enjoy the hazing pranks which see two young ladies get a good spanking before they are forced to strip down to their bras and perform 'squishy push-ups' which consist of filling your bra with whipped cream, cherries and chocolate sauce before engaging in some excercise.

As well as creating a number of male mastubatory fantasies on screen, Eric Spudic also manages to homage both 'Psycho' and 'Halloween' in the same sequence which is no mean feat. He pulls it off however, by putting his own comical stamp on it.

OVERALL SUMMARY
If you like your slashers filled with buns, boobs, blood and guts you'll have fun with this. If you've seen any of Joe Castro's previous or subsequent efforts you'll know exactly what to expect, and fans of low budget slasher movies will not be disappointed.
