Plot: Hell on Earth is unleashed when a mutated strain of mad cow disease infects the countryside, turning people into ravenous flesh-eating zombies.

Writer-director Conor McMahon attempts a one-man Irish horror movie revival with his genuinely frightening and purposely hilarious low-budget zombie film DEAD MEAT. While driving through the rural Irish countryside, Spanish tourists Helena (Marian Araujo) and Martin (David Ryan) literally stumble upon a legion of flesh-eating zombies created by a mutated strain of mad-cow disease. It isn't long before Martin himself succumbs to zombification, leaving Helena to partner with local gravedigger Desmond (David Mallard) to fight off the army of undead with creatively zany techniques involving everything from shovels to vacuum cleaners. Balancing dark humor with moody atmospherics and ample doses of gore, DEAD MEAT deftly straddles the line between the self-conscious parody of SHAUN OF THE DEAD or Peter Jackson's DEAD ALIVE and the serious horror traditions of George Romero and Sam Raimi for a good old-fashioned zombie flick destined to become an instant cult

external linkAn obvious inspiration on about 100 different levels, 'Dead Meat' looks, feels, sounds and plays out just like a classic Peter Jackson horror flick. 4/5

external linkAll I’ll say is that Dead Meat rocked when it came to visual panache, slick locations, clever horror winks and gory goods but sadly the milk (cow…milk…get it) went sour when it came to content. The characters were just there, the humor was not emphasizedupon enough and there are just so many times I can see the same scenario presented to me with slight variations to it, over and over again, before I get antsy. Grill this meat and judge for yourselves lads! 2/4
--'The Arrow' (Arrow)

external linkIt is by no means a great horror movie but it's certainly an excellent start. There are some big laughs, cool effects. and a great atmosphere to it. 7/10

external linkA simple storyline, moments of fear and tension and then an ending that knocks the wind out of you. 4/5

external linkThankfully, Dead Meat isn't another Shaun Of The Dead-inspired, ironic zombie laugh-a-thon. It's tongue may be planted in its maggot-riddled cheek, but for the most part writer/director McMahon is playing it straight. 4/5

external linkRecently it seems as if there have been too many awful horror flicks and not enough decent ones. This saddens me as I don't enjoy giving bad reviews but I always have to be honest and I honestly think that this movie was rubbish. If you haven't seen Shaun Of The Dead yet, check that out instead of this as this is not worth your time. 1/5
