Director Lulu Jarmen’s “Bad Meat” proves once again why it’s always a bad idea to send teenage delinquents to rehabilitation clinics in the middle of nowhere. If they don’t spend their time hooking up in grungy cabins, they tend to get eviscerated by people with nefarious agendas. I’ve seen it happen time and time again.
Of course, Jarmen’s nasty looking horror movie shouldn’t be confused with Scott Dikkers’s bizarre Chevy Chase comedy “Bad Meat.” Trust me when I say you don’t want to confuse the two. Although I haven’t seen Jarmen’s film yet, I’m almost positive it’s better than the other “Bad Meat.” Read the DVD packaging very carefully before purchase.
Here’s what the official press release says about the flick:
Starring Dave Franco (“21 Jump Street”), Elisabeth Harnois (“Mars Needs Moms”) Jessica Parker-Kennedy (“Decoys”) and Mark Pellegrino (“Mulholland Drive”) “Bad Meat”, which premiered at London’s Frightfest before screenings at Razor Reel in Belgium and Fancine in Spain, tells the story of a group of teenage delinquents who contract a deadly virus after being ordered to a remote camp for rehabilitation. Compared to Eli Roth’s “Cabin Fever” and Michal J Bassett’s “Wilderness,” “Bad Meat” trades in all manner of bodily fluids, puking perverts, a graphic dog dissection, amateur stomach-pumping, chewed body-parts and ripped-off genitals.
I’ll come for the puking perverts, but I’m going to stay for the amateur stomach-pumping. Jinga Films will bring “Bad Meat” to market on February 19, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
