Storyline

Animals attacks, says the TV news. But two ex-security agents know the real cause - maybe the real culprits. Shahrokh and Argenta are former employees of a company they knew to be conducting bizarre medical experiments. What has resulted are not animals attacks, but attacks by humans turned into vicious, decomposing, cannibalistic zombies. Their efforts to stem the violence in vain, hunted by the authorities, Shahrokh and Argenta escape the city just as it is engulfed in chaos. Their only hope lies in finding and organizing the few remaining survivors. What they find - three women claiming to be vampires with high-tech weaponry, a deranged and washed-up Mexican wrestler, a wounded soldier, and a scientist who may know more than he lets on - offer more questions than answers. Can this tiny cadre hope to defeat an army of the undead? And if they succeed...will there be anyone left alive? Written by Anonymous

It's Okay for Ultracheap Zombie Horror
16 September 2003 | by knightsmadnessSee all my reviews

Meat Market is a lot more fun in premise than in execution. It's got zombies, guns, blood, lesbian vampires and a Mexican wrestler. Unfortunately, they didn't find much to do with these concepts. There's little to no plot and bad acting, but that's what you should be expecting in this genre. The problem is that in the areas a low budget horror flick should by all means succeed, this one just wandered around, lost and confused as to what it should be doing. They understand there's something funny about a Mexican wrestler fighting zombies, but they can't think of much for him to do besides stand in front of the camera and mumble to himself. The sex scene appears out of nowhere and is entirely unsatisfying. The worst sin, by far, is that the gore effects are uncreative and entirely forgettable. In summary, bad acting and a lacking plot can always be forgiven in low budget movies, but you don't mess up the blood and guts without seriously compromising the film. This movie is just okay.
