Following the cold opening, the film smash-cuts to its credits, which overlay actual footage from day-to-day operations at a real slaughterhouse. This disgusting scene is scored to silly music. It's at this point you think the movie could very well become a great dark comedy. It may even have something to say.
Then there's the teenagers of the film. They don't really do much of anything. They're under no threat until the end, when their mostly pointless subplot finally crosses paths with Buddy. In the meantime, Buddy kills the town deputy, dons his clothes, and goes for a joyride in what proves to be the film's funnest scene. If only the rest of the movie were so good.
I do have to complain that the final kill in the movie shows even less than the first kill did. What a cheat.
