Requiem for The Meateater
15 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie vaguely. I saw it on "Elvira's Macabre Dark Mistress Theater"(or something like that). I have been reading a few of the above reviews and it is safe to assume that this flick has been rendered unanimously a Z-Grade howler of the very first order. And rightfully so. However, there is something to celebrate in this trash. And that would be the nostalgia of low-budget(to the say the least in this case) 70's garbage that can only be represented in the spirit of movies like this. "THE MEATEATER" was probably filmed by a wayward crew trying to cash in on the drive-in craze that saturated inner-city lots across the Midwest and California at that time. When I saw this flick it was appropriately mocked by Elvira. Now,it would be lucky enough to be even relegated to collecting dust on a shelf at some Mom and Pop video rental(If those still exist). Aside from that, the filmmakers obviously intended to entice "THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE" crowd. Hence,the title. But it's plot similarity to that film is tenuous. For those of you who actually went to the trouble to seek out a review of this very obscure picture, I admire your frivolousness for the genre. And I do owe you a bottom line opinion. "THE MEATEATER" is an abysmal movie. If you have sought it out,then it is worth renting because of the reasons stated above. Other than that,the movie will forever descend gracelessly to the bowels of oblivion and beyond.
