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.
