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 »

Where is the meat cleaver? Where is Christopher Lee?
20 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Actually, Christopher Lee IS here, in a way. He is sitting at a desk and spouting some mystical hocus-pocus at the beginning and the end of the film. I was about to say "I hope he enjoyed a nice paycheck for this", but then I read the trivia section for this movie on IMDb and it seems that the exploitation of his name to fool the paying audience was not his idea and was done without his permission. Anyway, "Meat Cleaver Massacre" doesn't have enough story to support a feature-length film, and the killings are not interesting, memorable or explicit enough. As for the actors, I doubt most of them ever worked again in another film. Avoid this schlock, even if you are an avid horror fan. (*1/2)
