Bad news for Bad Meat

05.28.2008by: Eric Walkuski

It is being reporting that the Rob Schmidt horror film BAD MEAT has been effectively shut down due to lack of funds, with no light at the end of the tunnel in sight... Always sucks when something like this happens, not just for us fans who might be deprived of a really cool horror flick, but for the folks involved, who are loosing jobs and seeing a project they've toiled away on for many months be ripped away from them.

The incompetent company responsible, Capitol Films, basically ran out of money, forcing the Rob Schmidt film to shut down after 2/3 of the script was shot. The flick is two weeks away from completing principal photography, and now it looks like it won't get finished, unless someone else swoops in and rescues it.

The article in Deadline Hollywood Daily describes Capitol Films' owner, David Bergstein, as "lounging on a yacht during the Cannes Film Festival" this past weekend - of course while his company is floundering and hard-working people are getting royally screwed. Gotta love the suits.

This is not the first film completely f*cked over by this ignoramus; a film called LOVE RANCH is in trouble, and just a few days ago the new David O. Russell film, NAILED, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel (below; yum), was practically shut down as well, because people weren't getting paid (apparently this Bergstein creep has a real hard time respecting union rules). Supposedly it will get running again later this week or next. Let's hope the same goes for BAD MEAT.

If the flick ever gets off the ground again, here's what can be expected: A group of so-called "problem teens" are sent by their parents to a repressive Boot Camp in the middle of nowhere, in the hope that the strict regime will transform them into youthful model citizens that their parents can be proud of. However the kids refuse to play ball, and tensions emerge between them as they try to resist the guards' sadistic methods.

Meanwhile, the camp's down-trodden cook has also tired of the abuse meted out to him by the guards, and fixes them a meal of illegal, diseased meat...a final "screw you!" before he abandons the camp. But he doesn't know that the meat is infected with a virus, which instead of simply making the guards ill as he intended, transforms them into flesh-crazed maniacs!

If our heroes are to make it to morning and survive the carnage, they must put aside their differences and work together. They're going to learn the lessons of maturity and responsibility the hard way...
