¡QUÉ HORROR! 2011

THE VIOLENT KIND
“… it’s been a really weird night…”
By the time the sh*t hit the fan in The Violent Kind’s climax and “Lights in the Sky” began to play over the end titles crawl, I knew that, once again, from out of the clear blue, The Butcher Brothers (AKA as Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores) had just whacked me on the side of the head with some kicka$$ cinema.
I came into The Violent Kind knowing nothing more than, this was the new film by the same people who’d notched a pretty high point in After Dark’s very first Horrorfest with The Hamiltons, and that’s pretty much the way you should go into it as well. Any attempt at a synopsis will just spoil things.
Suffice it to say that there are shades of David Lynch in The Violent Kind, which features some familiar faces from The Hamiltons; let’s leave it at that.
Parting shot: A review of The Hamiltons can be found lurking in the Archive.
