Many hookers have gone missing in a small town, and no one can figure out what is happening to them. It appears to be the work of a serial killer, but who can it be?
Out in the country side lives a butcher and pig farmer named “Squealer.” His freshly made meat products are not exactly what people believe they are made from (I’m sure you know where I am going with that).
“Squealer” has a thing for hookers (I guess they make the best meats?). He lures them in with drugs.
Will the Police be able to figure out who is killing the hookers, before many more go missing. And why is “Squealer” the way he is? To find out, go see Squealer. Look for a theater near you, or on digital and On Demand.
First and foremost, Tyrese Gibson has a very small part in this film. I don’t know why he gets top billing. That’s just my “two cents.”
This is an interesting film. A bit predictable, but what movie isn’t these days, right? Predictable or not, it’s an interesting storyline. From what I know, this film was inspired by true events. I don’t recall such a story in the news, but then again, it could have been more of a local story.
There is a lot of gore in this film, so if blood and guts are not your thing, you might want to skip this film. I’m okay with blood and guts, because I’m a fan of the horror movie genre, but there were parts in this film I went “eww” at. There’s gore, and then there is over-the-top gore. This film is the over-the-top kind. Plus the idea of people unknowingly eating human meat is sickening too.
There is a scene where a women gets an injection IN HER NECK that gave me the heebie jeebies too. And a leg breaking incident that made my legs hurt when I saw it. Ouch!
This is far from an Academy Award winning film, but it’s also not a total dud either. It was entertaining enough to keep my attention the entire time. You knew the killer would be caught in the end, but it kept me guessing as to how many more people would die before he was found, and how they would stop him.
