"When Hell Spits Out the Dead, it
will be the Darkest Day of Terror Humankind has Ever Known!
More than a year after
the events of Meat Market,
the few survivors, Argenta, Nemesis, and others struggle for
survival against the undead in the ruins of what was once
society. In their search for a safe haven they come across
what appears to be the last refuge of humanity - a fortified
compound run by former motivational speaker Bill Wilhelm,
and his cult of heavily armed fanatics. but when Argenta is
subjected to indoctrination techniques and her comrades imprisoned,
she begins to suspect that deep within the compound, more
is going on than a simple attempt to 'rebuild' ... that Bill
and his followers have more than one use for the living and
the undead alike..." - from DVD
After seeing the first "Meat
Market", I ordered the second
one right away and I had high expectations. I wasn't disappointed!
In all fairness, the acting is a bit on the shabby side at
times, but what can one expect of a movie with a budget of
less then $2000... There's one clear exception though. I noticed
right away that "the mad doctor" had acting skills
(got it confirmed when I heard on one of the commentary tracks
that he was a professional actor). The plot is actually ok,
but the gore comes first (which is fine by me), and the gore
is very well made considering the low budget! What make this
movie a classic indie film for me, is the crazy and at times
hilarious characters. Again, "the mad doctor" stands
out, but also the "meat fucker", the chef, and of
course the unforgettable "El Diablo Azul" are great!
There's also some nudity involved, and you get to see two
of the characters from the first "Meat Market" again
for a brief moment in a "funny" sex scene! With
"Meat Market 2", Brian
Clement proves once again that he is a very talented
director. All considered, This is the best Indie horror movies
I've ever seen.
Highly recommended for fans of independent cinema!
The DVD (released by SubRosa) is also
great! It contains some great extras including 2 great commentary
tracks, a really good "behind the scenes" documentary,
trailers for "Meat Market 2" and other SubRosa DVD's,
a little test (which you must complete to see a little "documentary"
(or whatever it should be called) with "El Diablo Azul")
and a "Stills Gallery". This DVD is definantly worth
