Synopsis: Lester Bacon's slaughterhouse has run into financial problems. Faced with the town lawyer, the sheriff, and the rival slaughterhouse owner trying to purchase his land, Lester decides to take matters into his own hands. After discovering the type of violence his hulking and mentally deranged son, Buddy, is capable of, Lester orders him to permanently dispose of anyone who conspires against them...

A late 80s video store staple, Rick Roessler's Slaughterhouse is a gleefully bloody San Diego shot slasher featuring atmospheric and noirish cinematography along with a generous helping of creative kills. Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents Slaughterhouse in its North American Blu-ray debut, newly restored in 2K from its 35mm Interpositive and featuring the original Ultra-Stereo sound mix for the first time on home video.
