Goofs

When Bill HInzman pulls his hand out of the girls stomach, there is blood visible on the waistband of her dress. This shows that this scene took more than one take for the blood to be there already. See more »

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 »

Predictable but still not bad
13 May 2004 | by Hessian499See all my reviews

As other reviewers have mentioned, Flesheater stars Bill Hinzman of Night of the Living Dead fame as the title zombie in an all out attack in the undead. The film by no means gets close to the entertainment level of the movie it draws inspiration from, Night of the Living Dead, but is still entertaining to a degree despite being highly predictable. As stated before, a farmer uncovers a wooden box with a bizarre warning on it that had obviously been buried for decades, and upon opening it releases the zombie Hinzman who starts his rampage of undead terror. The acting is not the greatest and the story drags at times, but some scenes are pretty spooky, such as when Hinzman and some other zombies wander into town and attack a family in a suburban house. The ending, which I won't reveal here, is highly predictable and you can see it coming a long time off. All in all, Flesheater may not be the greatest horror film ever made, or even a great zombie movie, but it's not totally awful, either.
