Storyline

When Mark hears the urban myth about the dietary habits of the new kid in school, the last thing he wants is to be invited round to dinner. His worst fears are realised when he has to endure a three-course meal at the Campbell family residence. Mark cannot decide what's worse, not knowing what's in the soup, or worrying that he could be the next course. Meat The Campbells is a dark, humorous and gruesome tale in which an invitation to dinner has never been so deadly. Written by Simon and Michelle Hynd

Mmm good
29 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the 2006 Palm Springs International Film Festival and it's a really well done very visual short out of Scotland. It uses lots of bright surrealistic colors like a comic book much like the Beatty-Madonna Dick Tracy film did and great camera angles like the old Batman TV series. Mark and his two friends at school are very skeptical about a new boy who sits across from them in the school lunchroom. A legend has already swept through the school that his family are cannibals. Mark and a friend are invited to the Campbell family home for dinner and Mark's imagination is running wild on who these pretentiously friendly and seemingly normal people may be. Are they a normal family after all or something more sinister? Simon and Michelle Hynd wrote this imaginative story and Simon Hynd directs. Veteran actors Michelle Gomez and Derek Riddell play Mr. & Mrs Campbell and five child actors round out the cast of seven. I would give this an 8.0 out of 10.
