Raw Meat

Do you like police procedurals? What about movies about that feature a subterranean dwelling cannibal? What about a movie involving the romance between two college students? Would you like all of that together? No, no you wouldn’t, and that is the main reason to stay away from Raw Meat.

The one saving grace of Raw Meat is the police scenes that feature Donald Pleasance. His scenes with his fellow bobbies(?) have the most well written dialogue of the picture. The actual parts featuring the cannibal are pretty poorly done. I think they wanted him to be sympathetic because he is alone and has to live underground, unfortunately his unintelligible screaming and moaning are just annoying. One major fault of the film is that there is no suspense the cannibal just walks around corners and starts hitting people. This is kind of what the viewer wants to do after they waste their time with this movie. I must admit that the opening theme of this film is actually quite good, and had my wife dancing around abit (before she asked “Ok how much longer is this going to be on?)
