Storyline

More than a year after the events of Meat Market, the few survivors, Argenta, Nemesis, and others, struggle for survival against the undead in the ruins of what was once society. In their search for a safe haven they come across what appears to be the last refuge of humanity - a fortified compound run by former motivational speaker Bill Wilhelm and his cult of heavily armed fanatics. But when Argenta is subjected to indoctrination techniques and her comrades imprisoned, she begins to suspect that deep within the compound, more is going on than a simple attempt to rebuild...that Bill and his followers have more than one use for the living and the undead alike...

A Finely Crafted Movie; One Actor Particularly Stands Out
14 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

A well crafted sequel to the original hit "Meat Market" Contains many of the same themes and metaphors the first one had, and utilized to the skill and mastery of a surgeon in heat. (Globalization, Environmentalism, Zombie-face-sucking-gut-bustin-a-fication, and womanization). The second surpasses the first in the amount of hidden subtext only inversely proportional to the decrease in the amount of time given to introspection.

"Meat Market 2" will stand out as a true film-fan's film, and will endure the test of time as, the movie itself is practically ageless. Themes, settings, characters have a glow that only a well crafted movie can have; time less characters such as "Diablo Azul" and my particular fave "Cult Compound Guard" (played to masterful perfection by http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1385071/ ).

No movie before or since has or will ever be called a classic again until reaching the heights this movie has set. So high is that bar, only the tallest of directors could possibly dare touch it. Look out Shaquille O'Neil, It's MEAT MARKET 2!!
