if boredom hurts, this movie is an ax to the skull
"Three on a Meathook" is a catchy title. And that's the only redeeming quality about this movie. This film has been mentioned in about every book about Ed Gein as being "inspired by the true-life killings", but there's absolutely no connection aside from the fact Ed Gein killed people, and so did the guy in "Meathook". If you heard about "Meathook" while doing research on Ed Gein, watch "Deranged" instead; it's closer to the true story.
There is nothing gory about this movie, except a few frames in the beginning and a few frames in the end. I'm talking about less than seconds worth of gore. After the deaths in the first 5 minutes, the supposed killer is shown farming, dancing and falling in love. I personally would like to see a movie about what happens after murders, but I wish it wasn't as boring as "Meathook". Who wants to see this David Letterman look-alike farm? Love is great, but I don't want it clogging up my slasher movie! I rented it for a reason, and it wasn't to sit there watching some normal guy's life for an hour.
"Three on a Meathook" was, quite simply put, boring. There was action in the beginning, a little tiny bit of action in the end, and an expanse of drearyness in the middle. It gives a new definition to the word "slow". Don't waste your life watching this.
