Its not what you eat....its WHO you eat
25 November 2004 | by markucdSee all my reviews

What can I say, DEAD MEAT is excellent. The first true Irish Horror film sets a high standard for all future Irish features to live up to.

A wonderful blend of genuine thrills and over the top humour, DEAD MEAT manages excellently to satisfy all the viewers needs. First and foremost, DEAD MEAT is a film made by horror fans for horror fans. This is what makes this film such a genuine treat.

The basic plot revolves around a cow suffering from mad cow disease breaking out and attacking a farmer. This leads to a new strain of the disease that once infected turns everyone into flesh eating Zombies. The film follows a group of stranded folk and there efforts to make it through the horde of Zombies and make it to safety.

Plot aside, this film succeeds where many other imitators failed due to the fact that it doesn't take itself overly serious, but at the same time refrains from falling into the trap of lame slapstick. This is the directorial debut of Conor McMahon and his work along with the Irish Horrorthon founders, Ed King and Michael Griffin shows a genuine eye for what made all the classic horror films so good.

A mixture of modern humour with the style and atmosphere of classics such as Night of the Living Dead and the many 70's Italian Zombie films this film is guaranteed to delight any fan of the genre (or just enjoyable films in general). Another worthy note is the music which shifts from an eerie score to at times a John Carpenter-esque style. Over analysing the film would only take away from the pure fun and entertainment that this film embodies,

Destined to be a cult classic, Get it, watch it and ENJOY IT!!!
