I'm at a Loss of Words
10 June 1999 | by (Tempe, Arizona) – See all my reviews

How is it possible that THE MEATEATERS isn't in the IMDb 'Bottom 100?!?!?!?!? This movie is worse than bad. Bad would suggest an emotional response on behalf of the viewer - anger, revulsion, nausea, etc. Meateater can't even provide that. I can say with absolute confidence that I would rather stare at my blank TV screen for an 1 1/2 hours than watch this movie again.

I actually found a video rental store that carried this movie, and I would note that they ended up going out of business - I'm convinced Meateater had something to do with it.

Be forewarned; the cool image (a cartoon) on the cover of the VHS has nothing to do with the film. The only scene that holds a place in my memory (for which I hope the director suffers in the afterlife for) is the family driving around in a station wagon singing "I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener..." If that sounds like entertainment to you, maybe you should rent this flick. Otherwise stay far away from it.
