CHOPPING BLOCK: REVIEW
Written by VHS
If “Office Space” had a one-night stand with “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” the lovechild would be “Chopping Block”. It’s a funny flick about a group of friends who are all fired from their cushy office job. For revenge they concoct a plan to kidnap their boss’s daughter in hopes of ransoming her off for money. Only problem is that they’re not the only ones looking for her. The boss’s daughter is the final girl of her story and has narrowly escaped the clutches of a psychotic murder. When the gang kidnaps her, they have no idea that this murderer will stop at nothing to get what she wants and what she wants they have.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, comedy is hard. Writer/director Joshua Hull did a great job keeping the film moving all the while ensuring that the jokes land. I would say that this is far more a comedy than a horror flick, though they bring the violence and don’t shy away from the gore.
