An illustrious British boarding school becomes a bloody battleground when a mysterious sinkhole appears at a nearby fracking site unleashing unspeakable horror.

Slaughterhouse Rulez was a movie I went into not knowing too much about. I know I was pretty shocked to see it was only getting a DVD release when it packs a cast such as Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Margot Robbie. It basically is a teen comedy with some sci-fi/horror stuff tossed in for good measure. We have our lead who gets sent off to a boarding school where he finds a girl he takes a fancy too and starts to disrupt the order of things there. Soon, however, a sinkhole opens up and these very teenage problems get a big dose of monsters tossed into the mix and that’s when it gets into another gear. It really wasn’t a bad watch for what it is but seems a little confused as to just what that is supposed to be from time to time. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost had a hand in making this so they sort of take a backseat to the younger folks. Margot Robbie isn’t here much either, so don’t go into thinking you’ll be seeing another Shaun of the Dead type movie. This is for the younger folks and they are primarily the focus.

And you can’t really complain much from that point of view either. I’m not sure that this is a movie you’ll quickly be spinning on replay, but I think it does just fine as a fun little popcorn flick that is nice to just kick back and watch. It isn’t going to be Gone with the Wind but it isn’t trying to be. Like I said before, it might have to deal with a case of not having enough horror/Sci-Fi for those type fans and not having enough teenage shenanigans for those type fans, but it does try its best to find a nice in the middle stance. I had fun with it on the first watch but I’m not sure it’s something I’ll watch again. Still, that first watch wasn’t in any way shape or form awful, just not very memorable either.
