Storyline

Andrew "Drew" Shelton has it all - looks, money, women and an insatiable taste for human flesh. His vanity is only surpassed by his obsession with finding the perfect tasting meal and it has fueled his appetite for killing, preparing and cooking beautiful women. He throws lavish dinner parties and serves his guests his latest victim and one unlucky guest becomes the main course of his next get together. When a no-nonsense detective starts putting the pieces together, it leads to a game of cat and mouse that only increases the stakes. But is Drew the soul-less, cold-blooded killer that he appears to be? Or is he just the Meat Puppet for a more sadistic mind? Written by Beach Point Productons

The Meat Puppet
7 April 2016 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

This is a film that tries to walk the line between horror and black humour; it fails spectacularly. How best to describe "The Meat Puppet" - Ted Bundy meets Jeffrey Dahmer? Indeed, for true crime buffs there is a rather obvious cultural reference to Bundy when our creepy serial killer cannibal picks up a girl at the beach. Like Bundy he has his arm in a sling. This appears in the 2002 film "Ted Bundy"as does the scene where he freaks out in his car; in the Bundy film that was after Carol DaRonch (renamed Tina Gabler) fought him off and escaped; here it is in a different context.

This film fails in so many ways it is difficult to give it any credit at all; Keith Collins plays the psychopathic Drew Shelton in an intentionally creepy fashion, but rather than creepy he is annoying. Even the incestuous relationship with his aunt misses the mark. "The Meat Puppet" was obviously made on a low budget; that along with the poor script seals its fate. It earns one point for the soundtrack, which should have been more extensive.
