Storyline

Animals attacks, says the TV news. But two ex-security agents know the real cause - maybe the real culprits. Shahrokh and Argenta are former employees of a company they knew to be conducting bizarre medical experiments. What has resulted are not animals attacks, but attacks by humans turned into vicious, decomposing, cannibalistic zombies. Their efforts to stem the violence in vain, hunted by the authorities, Shahrokh and Argenta escape the city just as it is engulfed in chaos. Their only hope lies in finding and organizing the few remaining survivors. What they find - three women claiming to be vampires with high-tech weaponry, a deranged and washed-up Mexican wrestler, a wounded soldier, and a scientist who may know more than he lets on - offer more questions than answers. Can this tiny cadre hope to defeat an army of the undead? And if they succeed...will there be anyone left alive? Written by Anonymous

lesbian vampires, a luchador and zombies
20 May 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

this flick is rather popular with the horehounds and I agree, it do has a lot of gore. But gore doesn't make a movie. And that's what this flick doesn't actually has. It's an extreme low budget flick but still it's worth picking up.

It shows that all the money went to the effects used. Not to make the zombies who look rather good for a low budget but for the effects used. From the start you will see zombies being shot or people being bitten by the horde. The only thing people dislike this flick is the acting itself. The acting is amateuristic and laughable when they are having conversations. Just watch when the 3 vampires are having a talk with the survivors. Another thing that some have problem with is the nudity here and there. The opening of Meat Market shows a couple who are making it out. There's no nudity and we only see the girl in her underwear but the guy shows his hard-on even as it is clear that it was a fake penis, towards the end of this flick I guess we have the real thing when a vampire is making love. The stupidity lays in the fact that they are making love while soldiers are clearing the building. Of course a zombie is shot and all his blood sputters all over the couple. But there's more real nudity here and there.

It's really the blah blah that will make you go for the zapper to turn it off. If it wasn't for the gore I would too. It spawned two other Meat Market flicks and has a following. You've been warned, really bad acting but, sigh, the gore makes it watchable...and the scene's with the luchador.

Gore 2/5 Nudity 2/5 effects 2/5 Story 1,5/5 Comedy 0/5
