An All-American suburban family man purchases an old, ramshackle movie theater with high hopes of restoring it as a family-run business. Unfortunately, he is unaware that the theater is home to a creeping madman obsessed with 1930s movie legend Jean Harlow. Not surprisingly, bodies begin piling up the minute the theater reopens, and the new owner's daughter finds herself in mortal danger due to her uncanny resemblance to Harlow(in truth, she looks about as much like Jean Harlow as Jack Klugman does).
This is a textbook example of trash-film-as-comedy...with its barnyard production of manifold deficiencies, it's hard not to feel a chivalrous, understanding sort of love for THE MEATEATER, similar to the way that you'd love your own two-headed, pigeon-toed offspring. If, however, your personal funnybone is not jabbed by the face-down peculiarities of supremely bad cinema, then you'd be best advised to forestall this one .
