He is abducted by the deranged serial-killer Graham Sutter (Brett Rickaby) and brought to the Sutter Meat & Poultry, an abandoned meat-packing plant in Minersville, Pennsylvania, where Graham slaughters young women that he kidnaps. Five years later, the stubborn seventeen year-old teenager Allison Miller loses her parents and moves to her uncle Jonathan Miller’s house near the decrepit plant. Jonathan, his wife Karen and their little daughter Wendy welcome Allison, but the teenager does not give much attention to her new family. Allison likes to run alone on the road and she passes by the meat-packing plant and then she meets the mechanic William “Billy” and has a crush on him. Jonathan advises Allison to avoid running near the old factory and Billy, who is a problematic teenager. Allison does not listen to her uncle and brings tragedy to the Miller family.
Plot: In 1989, six year old Martin Bristoll was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville Pennsylvania. Graham Sutter, a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim’s screams were drowned out by the rural countryside. For five years, Martin’s whereabouts have remained a mystery, until 17 year old Allison Miller comes to live with her Uncle, Jonathan. While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren’t quite right at the farmhouse down the road. Her curiosity disturbs a hornet’s nest of evil and despair that once torn open, can never be closed.

A frustratingly dumb prequel.
Kudos to writer/director Stevan Mena for making Bereavement, his prequel to the impressive Malevolence, such a downbeat, mean-spirited and bloody little psycho flick, and also for casting delicious Alexandra Daddario in the lead, an actress who deservedly finds a place in my ‘Big Breasted Babe In A Small Vest’ Horror Hall of Fame. No such praise, however for Mena’s woeful script, which is both incredibly clichéd at times and deeply flawed, making the film frustratingly mediocre as a whole.
First and foremost, why did Mena have his serial killer drive around in a truck that reveals his identity on the side? Loitering outside schools, driving slowly down suburban streets, and prowling round parking lots for victims are the kind of thing best done in an unmarked vehicle (or so I am lead to believe—ahem!); nut-job Sutter has his name painted on the door of his distinctive rusty heap and would surely have been the prime suspect for any local disappearance. Amazingly, though, he continues to abduct and kill with no interference from the police. And then there’s the little matter of Sutter’s lair, a dilapidated meat packing factory which sits next to a main highway and yet has never aroused the suspicion of anyone passing by, despite screams clearly being audible from the road; incredibly, the place even has power and a fully functional furnace!!!
Considering the sheer stupidity of this basic set-up, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that the characters act as though they have sawdust for brains. Track star Alison (Daddario) has obviously never seen a horror film in her life, since she is happy to continue exploring the creepy meat factory even after finding pools of blood and a scrapbook full of newspaper cuttings about missing local women. Alison’s boyfriend William suffers the ultimate price for displaying a similar lack of self preservation, as does a waitress who makes so much noise while attempting to escape from Sutter that it’s not long before she’s hanging from a meat-hook. Hell, it’s almost as though people actually want to be killed by this guy.
Unfortunately, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the idiocy on display in this film, with moments that will make you want to scream at the screen in frustration coming thick and fast, right up to the bleak and bloody finale that could have been avoided if only someone had just displayed a little common sense.
The Too Dumb to Survive Syndrom
Bereavement is a slasher movie with some strong points – good acting (Michael Biehn, Alexandra Daddario and the rest of the cast) and a good cinematography and production value. The weakest point: the behavior of the victims is so dumb like they never heard any news of serial killers and maniacs or never watched some horror movies. So watching them killed I always thought – well , that’s survival of the fittest, baby 😉
In a teenie-slasher with some elements of comedy such “behavior” of course is part of the deal, in a “serious” slasher like Bereavement it is not. On top, there are some implausibility and issues with the story: many girls disappear but nobody checks on the weird guy living in a old slaughterhouse, is just one of them. Also the “twist” (no, I won’t spoil) I saw miles ahead coming and is just a cliche that wants to shock but can’t, at least not the “serious” horror audience.
Well, with a more refine and plausible plot this movie could be easy a really good slasher. So it is a solid one, that is in the end not in every aspect convincing.
