Quotes

Sheriff: Give me your attention, men. I want you to understand we have a dangerous situation here. I've already lost one man. Most of you knew Harv Morgan. I want to get those things that killed him. Now, we are going to split up into groups. No less than two people to a group. We're going to head west until we meet up with the group coming from the east with Deputy Gary.
Posse Member: What are we looking for?
Posse Member: Yeah, Sheriff. What are these things?
Sheriff: They're dead things. They're dead, and they're attacking people.

Crazy Credits

The characters and events depicted in the motion picture entitled "FLESHEATER" are fictional. Any similarity to actual persons living, dead, or the living dead, or to actual events or places is purely coincidental. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 1993 UK Vipco video version (released as "Zombie Nosh") was cut by 1 minute 41 secs by the BBFC to remove a disemboweling scene, the flesheater forcing his hand through a topless girl's stomach and shots of a topless female zombie eating a corpse, and to heavily edit a scene where a girl is chased around a bedroom and bitten. The cuts were fully restored for the 2003 DVD release. See more »

User Reviews

First there was Romero, than Fulci and Mattei, now Hinzman unleashes more undead spendor
7 May 2000 | by avidiconSee all my reviews

Bill Hinzman's creation is one of so much imagination that even a lesser budget couldn't stifle it. I have not seen a film this inventive from a zombie film making newcomer, since Bruno Mattei's Hell of the Living Dead. Definitely the best horror film made in the 90's. Seeing a stellar effort such as this, gives me hope for the future of horror.
