Movie Info

When the Tan gang's prison breakout goes violently wrong, they need a hideout in a hurry. Picking the McMansion of a middle-class Maori family probably seemed like a safe bet. But how were the Tans to know that this particular family have reintroduced some very old-fashioned cuisine to their dining table? Will the Tans escape the trap, or is there gangster in the casserole tonight?(c) Official Site

While Fresh Meat is sometimes hard to swallow, I admittedly had more fun than I should have with this cannibal caper.

while Mulheron's film works perfectly well as an over-the-top caper-like cluster***k of clashing values and transgressive tropes, it also has just enough locally sourced meat on the bone to emerge with its own peculiar textures and flavours.

Audience Reviews for Fresh Meat

This New Zealand horror comedy starts like an ordinary sexy college movie but turns out quickly to a unusual story about a modern-day family of Maori cannibals who are taken hostage by a gang of criminals. It stars Temuera Morrison as Hemi Crane: The head of the family, Nicola Kawana as Margaret Crane (Hemi's wife), Hanna Tevita as Rina Crane (the teenage daughter), Kahn West as Glenn Crane (the teenage son), Leand Macadaan as Richie Tan, Ralph Hilaga as Paulie Tan and amazing Kate Elliot as Gigi. [img][/img] It is Danny Mulheron's directorial debut. The film had its world premiere at the 32nd Hawaii International Film Festival on 15 October 2012. It had its New Zealand premiere on 25 October. I wasn't too impressed with the screenplay, but the uniqueness of the movie allows the few holes in the writing, and over the top acting and action scenes. The film works as an uncompromisingly dark horror comedy and if you take it as a satire of clashing values and transgressive tropes, you could enjoy it much more. Maybe you are a vegetarian, but, as one of the heroes, try some "balls" for dinner! Don't expect a superb taste, though!
