the movie is almost good but the acting is garbage and all the big ideas don't live up to the lower budget, maybe? whatever it is the movie is never as over the top as it tries to be.

Slow and a let down June 9 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm highly disappointed to report this film was not particularly good. The opening was ok, and the ending was ok, but the intervening 80% of the movie just dragged slowly without any particularly inspiring action. Several observations. First, despite the movie's description, the film really isn't that violent or gory. I don't especially like gore and/or gratuitous violence and had no problem watching this film, so don't be dissuaded on that basis. Second, also despite references to paranormal activity, things just basically happen with no explanation or believable element. Granted, the overwhelming majority of horror films are not quite believable, but they at least try to present a story to explain why a certain something has happened. Not so in this movie; a group of people find themselves at a party, then wham, someone gets possessed and more bad things happen. It simply goes through the paces of what a usual horror film includes without any useful plot elements to create a story and weave it all together. Fans of Tiffany Shepis will be only partially pleased, as her role is somewhat short, and most of it is her (SPOILER) as a possessed demon-like being, but you still get some. Its worth a rental, but I encourage you to do so before you buy.

What a Romp Dec 23 2011
By Eric Sanberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You cannot dictate to something its nature. Or, as some people say, 'it is what it is.' This does not aspire to some lofty post. It's a biker meets zombie-ish movie. But it's way cool.

Here's the scoop. Bikers Cody, Elroy and Q are headed up to Northern California, and some remote house, to celebrate biker mom's 50th birthday. Both the earlier and newer members of this club are partying hard. But as things thin out weird stuff begins to happen. The sky develops a weird aurora, cell phones go nutso, cars won't start, and Cody's ex-gal turns into some carnivorous thingoid. Next thing you know they are set upon by some retro 50s guys and gals intent on releasing whatever alien thing is residing inside Cody's ex-gal.

I had a really good time watching this movie. I don't know squat about the butcher brothers and had no expectations going in so I was pleasantly surprised. This is not an expensive movie but I felt the money was well spent. I liked the direction. The shots were set up well and the special effects were good enough to get the point across. The writing was decent as well. They didn't just set up the situation and hack their way to the end. The main characters have histories so there's some gravity to the proceedings. The music was pretty good, particularly the 50s rock-a-billy type tunes. The performances were generally decent with the exception of the Vernon. Joe Egender, as Vernon, was outstanding. He reminded me of a thin-faced Giovanni Rabisi. Things ramped up a few notches when he and his friends hit the screen.

There are some hints as to why this is all happening. Vernon and his pals went missing in 1955 and there are some references to Jonas Saulk, the relevance of which I didn't understand. But, again, this isn't just a gory romp. And the ending was as cool as I've ever seen in a movie. Some might say it's nothing more than an open door to a sequel. It is certainly part that but it struck me with much greater impact.

This won't set the world on fire or change your life but, for my time and money, it's a solid entry to the genre.

CULT CLASSIC May 15 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
One of the first things I noticed is the frequent change in the genre of music. First it is gangsta rap, then punk rock, then heavy blues, then finally your metal track. It was not your classic grindhouse soundtrack as the Butcher Brothers sought to do things their own way. There is a 50th birthday party for the Mom of the biker gang "The Crew." They get her a couple of female strippers, very thoughtful. Cody's ex-girlfriend Michelle is there with her new bf which she kisses on in front of Cody, a real "B" word. She leaves and returns covered in blood. While laying in bed, passed out, one of the bikers decides to "get her while she is still warm." Michelle awakens while getting felt up and wants more. She turns into a demon/zombie and bites off a hunk of flesh. The screams attract the rest of the gang. One guy pulls Michelle off the biker and holds her down on the bed, then Michelle's sister Megan comes in and attempts to pull the guy off the monster Michelle.

The events are confusing and the movie waits too long explain what is happening.

Pluses: The bad guy had his own music as he whistled in an off key "Pop Goes the Weasel" although it wasn't used again.
The zombie/demon Michelle possessed (pun intended) that certain "Evil Dead" quality.
Dead people have a sense of humor.
Home invaders are from the "1950's."

Negatives: Not a movie for those who take their films seriously.

Sex, nudity, F-bomb.

You may not "get it" the first time. Feb. 4 2012
By Captain Sweatpants - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Okay first off, this is a B movie. It isn't "Grand Illusion" or "Sophies Choice". But if you are reading this you aren't looking for that, I hope. This movie has your typical gore and violence of any typical 21st century "splatter" movie. You have elements here of everything that is synonymous with "Grindhouse". Bikers, broads, Rock& Roll, sex, drugs, and a very Cthulluish threat that is pure evil, or is it? There is the twist, truth is good and evil, better keep score. Joe Egender has some of the greatest dialogue in any B move and his delivery, well if this wasn't a Butcher Bros. movie you would have heard more about him. Watch close and you will see, his character is far more than what appears to be.
I walk a fine line here not to spoil this but i will say this, one man's rapture is another's damnation and it all hinges on perspective. This is a great film disguised as a horror flick and a real bargain.

not bad May 25 2012
By B. E Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What's most irritating about the Violent Kind is the 25 minutes in the beginning that accomplishes nothing of interest. Just a bunch of young people partying, goofing off, making out, having conversations about nothing important, etc. We've seen this kind of generic storytelling for years so it's nothing new. Another annoying aspect is how the enemy just APPEARS with no dramatic or enticing build-up of any sort.

The only really entertaining moment comes when the one woman is covered in blood and acting fishy, so her friends tie her up in the bedroom. Well one of the perverted guys decides to attempt to take advantage of her while she's in a blood-soaked, oddly peaceful state of mind. To HIS surprise, she actually likes being touched between the legs. That's because she's now possessed and ready to rip him a new one! Shortly after when the other friends are aware what's going on, they slowly walk into the bedroom and approach the demon woman with extreme caution. Where did she hide? Not under the bed, not in the closet but... on the ceiling! Excellent segment.

However it's impossible to overlook the poor acting and storytelling. The actual demonic figures that appear later are more like badly designed costumes with less than spectacular line deliveries making it feel like you're watching a high school play, and the computer effects that emphasize the demonic presence near the end is totally laughable. Overall, it has its moments but is mostly a flawed affair.
