Directed by Eloy de la Iglesia
After accidentally killing a man, a poor butcher named Marco embarks on a murderous frenzy to cover up the crime, killing his girlfriend who wants to tell the police and then a series of other people. Marco starts disposing of the bodies in his slaughterhouse, but it doesn’t really solve the problem, which button-pushing Spanish director Eloy de la Iglesia subtly suggests (as Pablo Larrain did in 2008’s TONY MANERO) might have something to do with life under an oppressive and violent dictatorship - like Franco’s - which often pushes citizens to a breaking point.

Good for the description.
The name doesn't make much sense- however, the movie is really well-written, and whether it's an allegory for fascism, gentrification, or living in the closet, it's a damn good thriller. Very worth the watch, unless you can't do older movies then leave it's rating alone
fell asleep twice.
