Trivia

Actor 'Lee, Christopher' has said that he had no idea he was appearing in this film. He said that he was hired by a different producer to narrate an entirely different film, and that the producer apparently sold Lee's footage, without his permission, to the producers of this film, who then advertised it as "starring Christopher Lee". He initiated legal action against this film's producers, but withdrew it when he was advised that it would be a long, drawn-out and expensive procedure. See more »

Cheap and psychedelic horror film.
5 August 2012 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Meatcleaver Massacre" starts with long occult monologue of British horror legend Christopher Lee.A famous professor of occultism named Cantrell and his family is attacked in their home by four knives wielding students.Proffesor survives the attack,but his entire family is murdered.Whilst lying and vegetating in his hospital bed Cantrell summons an old Gaelic god to take vengeance on the murderers.And guess what?The killers begin to die one by one in some rather psychedelic ways for example one of them is killed by film projector.Incredibly cheap and delirious horror flick which rarely makes sense.There are some downright hilarious scenes and quite disturbing hallucinations throughout.The atmosphere is strikingly dreamy and nightmarish sometimes.The acting is awful and there is no meatcleaver massacre.6 rusty meatcleavers out of 10 and that's being generous.
