About the Movie

Brace yourself for an unrelenting new horror classic that’s scary, rough, and willing to break all the rules! Your life will never be the same when you meet THE VIOLENT KIND, a ruthless pack of unstoppable psychopaths terrorizing the wilds of Northern California.

Unrelenting and wildly unpredictable, this acclaimed shocker from the Butcher Brothers, directors of the horror hit The Hamiltons, shocked audiences at Sundance and takes you on a wild ride you’ll never forget!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A glutinous slasher flick that tries to conjure the spirit of the Evil Dead movies, but doesn't get anywhere near the required levels of wit and dexterity. – Andrew Pulver, Guardian, Jul 21, 2011

The trailer for this movie is somewhat misleading, making it seem like a film similar to "Funny Games". It turns out to be a hokey mishmash of gore and supernatural activity. The story takes a lot of time but essentially goes nowhere. As a consumer of the horror genre, this one leaves a lot to be desired.

Don't watch this movie!

This is a horrible excuse for a horror film. The first five minutes trick you into thinking you've found a diamond in the ruff so to speak but it doesn't take long to realize that this movie gets the S.U.C.K.! I actually bought it, don't make the same mistake. Down with bad horror films....Boooo!

Wonderfully Quirky Violence

I know logically that this is a film I should only like in a so good its bad kind of way, but for some reason I really liked it. The Rockabilly scenes were later in the film than the publicity lead me to believe. It was really a pairing of two stories: a look into the bikers lives then later the hostage scenes. Some actors in earlier Butcher Brothers films return (Taylor Cole, Samuel Child, Joe Egende) but their acting skills have improved. "The Violent Kind" is oddly reminiscent of the feel of some of David Lynch's work, but it is no "Blue Velvet."
