Horror themes: Murder, blood, dismemberment, stalking

The Killing Floor: Horror or thriller?

Thriller. Honestly, I would not discuss this film in a supernatural horror blog today; I must have gotten carried away.

This piece was apparently marketed as a horror film, so I just want to make things clear at the start that what we’re dealing with here is a thriller; some would say a mystery thriller, and some would say a Hitchcockian thriller. They’re both right, but a pure horror it is not. However, don’t let that put you off, because The Killing Floor actually has a few interesting scenes in store for the willing viewer.

Marc Blucas stars as the agent who receives videotapes of himself in the mail, fears someone is watching him, and ultimately falls apart as his paranoia gets the better of him.
