One of the best low-budget zombie movies I've seen!
17 February 2006 | by Logan-22See all my reviews

If you ever wanted to see a low-budget shot on video flesh-eating zombie movie that takes place in rural Ireland, Dead Meat is for you! The director moves his camera around constantly; as a result, it's shot with more style than most SOV flicks. The zombie make-up is passable. Gore FX are good and plentiful, but the idiotic comic book way the heroes kill some of the zombies knocks the film down a peg (such as the heroine throwing her high-heeled shoe into the eye of a zombie). There are some major inconsistencies in zombie mythology: The heroine bites a zombie on the ankle to get it to let her go -- why isn't she infected? Why does the zombie react to such a minor wound? Many zombies use weapons (yet none can figure out how to break into a car), and one runs away to avoid getting killed! Dead Meat alternates between taking itself too seriously and not seriously enough. This ends up being its major flaw (that and sometimes the accents are so thick you can't understand the actors). The film is jam-packed full of zombie action so you won't be bored. I'm looking forward to seeing the director's next film; he shows a lot of promise. Dead Meat is definitely worth a look for zombie and low-budget horror/gore fans, as well as anyone interested in low-budget film-making. DVD includes the director's cool short film Brain Eater, trailers and a making of.
