Editorial Reviews

A cult classic that horror film fans have clamored to see for many decades since its release, BIG MEAT EATER finally becomes readily available. The positively schizophrenic storyline initially follows a butcher who has unwittingly been turning his meat into radioactive waste by dumping it into a septic tank below his store. Meanwhile, the mayor of the town has been turned into a zombie by a homicidal killer who instructs him to butcher all of the townsfolk. The butcher enters into battle with the mad killer, and some passing aliens who have just landed on earth decide to help him out. A movie that only has one obvious antecedent--PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE--BIG MEAT EATER really has to be seen to be believed.

When I finally get around to mentioning "The Big Meat Eater", to people who are finally in my circle of movie friends (whom I number very few), I always say that it's the Canadian Rocky Horror. Strangely catchy musical numbers, very low budget special effects, and so many plots it should be 6 movies, a couple classic characters, this movie has it all. Bear in mind this was the 80's, but if you loved Repo-man, you should find something to smile (or groan) about in this slice of z grade cinema.

The film is a lower-budget type of Rocky Horror show without the sexual content and with less music. There is definitely some sarcasm within it, regarding small-town naivete, notions of science from the 50's, particularly where related to space, and, last but not least, the joining of space flight with a super-souped-up version of a teen's ideal toy-a car! The picture, apart from its craziness and the bizarre persona of Abdullah, seemed highly prophetic at times, and on hearing the Bagdad Boogie for the umpteenth time, I visualized Dubya, Cheney and Rumsfeld in drag in place of the dancing girls. This is for anyone and everyone tired of American reality. Try it, accompanied by some sedating liquid and quiet surroundings.

Picked this one up at the local video store back in the 80's. My friends and I had no idea what was in store for us. WOW! What an awesome surprise. We had accidentally found our own personal cult classic. If you're a fan of wacky low budget cinema then THIS is for you. It's a comedy horror sci fi ..................................MUSICAL!!!!!!!! It's AWESOME! I don't want to spoil it by giving away the plot. That doesn't matter anyway. Discover it like I did in highschool and have a blast. If you like weird and wonderful movies you WILL love BIG MEAT EATER!!!
