Two “foodie” brothers kidnap and torture those who ruin their “dining experience”…


“If jokes like detectives named Turner and Hooch might repeatedly cause you to chuckle or if you’ll get a kick out of watching Kevin Nash play a very unpleasant version of himself, chances are you’ll like Slaw more than I did. While there are several things within the film that I did admittedly find amusing, overall the filmmakers and I just don’t have the same sense of humor.” CArrow in the Head

“Besides the family, the two detectives Turner and Hooch, not the ones you’re thinking, were my favorite characters. The film held my attention from beginning to end, was wonderfully written, and well cast. It does a great job parodying Saw, while paving its own cabbage ridden path of destruction.” Dead, Buried, and Back!

“If you’re a fan of comedy with a heaping dash of horror, you owe it to yourself to see this movie. If you’re just curious and just want to watch a film that stars a slew of wrestlers, you should also give this movie a watch. Slaw is not only my favorite side dish, it’s a movie that I’m glad I had the chance to savor.” Wrestling with Film
