Review

It s fun to revisit this kind of filmmaking, if just
to see people plying their desire to frighten in
ways that only a small budget and a dedicated
F/X team can deliver. --DVD Talk

Product Description

A bunch of late 80s kids all decked out
in bad hair, worse accents, and dorky denim
ensembles take a halting hayride into the
middle of nowhere. They smoke pot, drink
beer, and compliment each other s loose sexual
morals. But when a local farmer unearths an
ancient ruin and a coffin holding a flesheating
zombie it s not long before the undead
are packing the wilderness! As the teens are
stalked and bitten one by one, they too become
members of the cannibal corpse craze. Even the
police are unable to stop the advancing horror
hordes, leaving our last two survivors to fend for
themselves against the main FleshEater and his
many minions.

I like sam's review alot. He understand no budget and very low budget movies very well. And If you aren't a fan of these movies then you'll hate them all. But for those of us who love low budget to no budget or just plain bad you can't rate them all one stars like non fans would. So for those who don't like movies that are made by inexperienced actors then this one isn't for you. BUt if you are a zombie fan then this one is ok. It has good effects and is better than some very low budgeters of the late 80's. I still wish someone would put dead life' on dvd at least. ANd you can compare the dvd version here to the blu ray. THe blu ray has lots more color but the artifacts are more visible because it's blown up film. Basically shriek show is just taking the print from the dvd and putting it on blu ray. I wish they'd clear up the defects though , spots and cuts that are there , but in this case they are rare enough not to be distracting. Unlike lets say 'galaxina' a great movie with many shredded scenes. This one was only shown at a few theatres and mainly was out on tape. The old straight to tape days. of the now long gone 80's. And this reflects the 80's , the music was better then for sure but the hairstyles weren't!
Still, I like the gore here and the acting which is first timers is decent at least. This isn't a studio affair of the film of pros. It's a regional movie from the 80's and you still see lots of these movies today. The dvd version looks more solid and filmy than the blu ray because of the resolution of the film to begin with. Still I prefer the blu ray version and you do get both. I can see media blasters is not going to clean up these movies but at least we get them on blu.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu Review 36 - Flesh Eater May 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Flesh Eater Blu-ray Review

Distributor: Media Blasters (US)

No, not Zombie Flesh Eaters unfortunately (although that one is coming later this year) but Bill Heinzman's Flesh Eater aka Zombie Nosh to UK audiences, so now that's out of the way, what can possibly be said about this one?
Truth is, I'm not even sure where to start. OK well as far as reviewing obscure releases goes, then we should be on pretty safe ground to start with, as this one is about as obscure as they get. Some films are so bad they're good and some are just bloody awful and in reality Flesh Eater probably lies somewhere between the two.

Made to capitalise on the "popularity" of the central zombie character from Night of the Living Dead, the film does have some reasonably decent gore effects especially considering the low budget it was given, however to get anywhere near a decent level of appreciation for the film, you first have to bypass the acting, most of which is more wooden than the Blair Witch herself could muster up. The film plays out as a semi homage to Romero's earlier zombie masterpiece and features various similar plot points along the way whilst considerably upping the gore (and nudity factor) and adding an unintentional side order of tongue in cheek. At least in Romero's original movie, the cast didn't just stand around stating things like "oh my god" while waiting for the zombies to attack them.

Filmed in 16mm then blown up to 35mm for theatrical release, anyone expecting visuals to rival newer releases has clearly never experienced this film before. The 1080p 16x9 transfer as expected is complete with various specks and other print damage as well having a fair amount of grain on display throughout the picture.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, Cheesy and really not very good at all... June 21, 2012
By Bitula
Format:Blu-ray
Appearing in "Night of the living dead" Bill Hinzman gave us one of the most iconic and memorable zombie performances ever to grace the screen. This was something he wanted to capitalize on and in the late 80s we got "Flesh Eater". One of the worst zombie flicks to ever see the light of day.

The actors are shockingly wooden. I swear that if you would throw any of these actors into a lake they would float. Usually this is not that big of a problem for me but in this case... well, i did not care for any of these lame ass stereotypical characters anyway. This together with the low budget and cheap look of the film made the movie unappealing and just plain boring.

The most frightening thing about this movie was the repetitive soundtrack. ugh! I can still hear those lame piano strings looping over and over again. Awful soundtrack i tell you!

We do however get some decent gore effects and that is always something. We get everything from torn out hearths to ax-killings and quite a few of those mandatory zombie-headshots. In any case this is not nearly enough to elevate this boring cheesefest and the average viewer will be sleeping like a baby only half way in.

The Blu-ray disc was alright for what source material they had to work with. You cant expect top notch picture and sound quality when picking up an old b-movie like this. I don't think we will ever see this one look any better than this. There is also interviews with some of the makers of the film and these are fairly interesting as well.

I would not recommend this movie to anyone except for collectors and die hard zombie fans.
Others beware!
