A lonesome country road, the middle of winter: Steven (Blake Canning) and Celeste's (Samantha De Benedet) car breaks down. Steven gets out to see what's wrong ... and he doesn't survive it while she gets dragged off, is locked into a small cage and forced into submission - and eventually she's impregnated.

The same country road, summer: Couples Jenna (Julie Mainville) and Mike (James Hicks), and Taylor (Anne-Carolyne Binette) and Chris (Frederik Storm) drive home from a party where they've learned things about their respective partners that puts a strain on their relationships - so they're not in the best mood when their car breaks down. Mike and Taylor volunteer to go looking for help, but really they just want to get it on behind their respective partners' backs - but eventually they find a gas station run by Owen (Simon Phillips) ... who knocks them out to make them captives. In the meantime, Owen's brother Oswald captures Jenna and Steve - and while the brothers don't really have much use of the men, and are even quick to gut Steve, they want to make the girls their new slaves. Thing is, the girls still have some fight in them and won't submit all that easily. But then again, Owen and Oswald have a brother, Oxford, who's not only gruesomely disfigured, he's also a cannibal with never-ending appetite ...

 

Now Butchers doesn't exactly break new ground when it comes to backwoods horrors - but it tells its story in a very appealing way, doing more than just following the slasher formula to the t but putting some surprises into its plot, not giving away the identity of the "final girl" in the first five minutes, and placing all the suspense sequences as well as jump scares and outbursts of violence in all the right places to keep one at the edge of one's seat throughout. And of course, a solid cast playing characters that are more than just two-dimensional cannon fodder only help to make this a very cool genre piece.
