‘Bad Meat’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jessica Parker Kennedy, Elisabeth Hartnois, Dave Franco, Mark Pellegrino, Taj Mwohry | Written by Paul Gerstenberger | Directed by Lulu Jarmen

Bad Meat stars Jessica Parker Kennedy from the Kevin Williamson created The Secret Circle, in a low-budget splatter flick, scripted by an Englishman and lensed in Canada, playing a tough-as-nails teenager who, along with a group of her peers (which include Dave “brother of James” Franco amongst their number), are subjected to the indignities of a correctional camp for troubled teens.

Greatest Horror Movies Ever Made: Part 3: Greatest Australian / New Zealand Horror Films

Australia may not have an overabundance of horror films but they’ve managed to produce some quality genre pictures. The recent success of the acclaimed documentary Not Quite Hollywood has shed light on a much overlooked aspect of Aussie genre filmmaking, from lowbrow slashers to twisted thrillers and gross-out horror comedies. Back in the 70′s a number of prominent filmmakers began to develop a film movement that would eventually see the successes of such films as Mad Max and The Last Wave. It was during this time that Australian cinema as a whole experienced resurgence due to increased governmental funding and eventually gave way to what international film critics termed the “Australian New Wave” or the “Golden Age of Australian cinema”.

New Zealand hasn’t produced many horror films over the years, but those it has given birth to are remarkably strong entries. In fact one of the biggest filmmakers
