Movie Info

This deranged low-budget Canadian production seems specifically tailored to midnight-movie patrons, among which the filmmakers must have thought it could find a solid cult audience. The story involves alien invaders who bring the corpse of Mayor Rigatoni back to life in order to initiate construction of a special facility on the site of the local butcher's septic tank, in which a special element called "balonium" has been discovered. Matters are further complicated by the butcher's weird influence on the town (he even invents his own language) and the psychopathic behavior of his cleaver-wielding assistant Abdallah, who is rapidly depleting the town's canine population... oh, and there's musical numbers, too. Director/co-writer Chris Windsor seems to dare viewers to make sense of this parody, which aspires to be another Rocky Horror Picture Show, but where that film was possessed of Richard O'Brien's wry genius, all that's available here is a smorgasbord of silliness. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Big Meat Eater has a kitchen sink feel to its formulation, a creaky cobbling together of ideas, genres and styles that don't always play nice with each other.

Audience Reviews for Big Meat Eater

You should really watch this movie. I've seen it over 50 times. . . at least. It's a musical that's "a cut above the rest". Good songs, good cast, very campy, kicks the crap out of 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'. Do yourself a favor and see it. Now that everyone has netflix, there's no excuse not to.

A silly, over the top, stupid comedy musical with sci-fi and horror elements. They seem to have been trying to make a movie like Rocky Horror, but it's just not funny enough.

Musical, comedy, sci-fi, horror - none done too well. Very off-the-wall and kinda amusing, but nothing to seek out.
