Storyline

A mysterious serial killer known only as the "Senses Taker" is leaving a trail of bodies with each of their five senses removed. As the bodies pile up, the police department finds itself further and further from identifying the killer. That's when detectives Brice and Mentum, much to their own and their captain's reluctance, are assigned to the case. Enter Simon, a seemingly mild-mannered and well-respected gardener for a local church who has more than gardening on his mind. He prefers to spend his quiet days stocking his freezer with fresh meat for his pet piranha. Quiet, that is, until the Senses Taker's slaughter begins. As the city's fear rises, so does the Senses Taker's media coverage. Proud of his "work" and tired of killing in relative obscurity, Simon decides he wants a piece of the pie and the battle for the top story on the nightly news begins. The body count rises, and the pressure is on Brice and Mentum to sift through the meager clues and catch their killer...or killers....

Dead Meat is a must-see for fans of John Gonzalez, the Mexican film buff par excellance.

For fans of guerrilla film-making, this piece is the mid 90s example to see. Shot on location around Chicago, including a variety of highways in the stunning opening on-foot chase.

Gruesome details follow a sinister plot, crafted well by Gonzalez in the early stages of his short, meteoric career.

Word has is Gonzalez honed his story-telling abilities when just a young boy and luckily revamped his style when telling stories to his three young (now grown up) sons.

Watch this one for the miraculously convincing, yet low budget, gore.
