Tribeca Film has just released the official trailer for their cannibal horror-comedy FRESH MEAT and it looks like a lot of fun. The film is an action-packed horror-comedy featuring modern-day Hannibal Lecters. FRESH MEAT will be available on nationwide VOD starting April 16, 2013, one week before its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23, 2013.
Directed by Danny Mulheron and written by Briar Grace-Smith, FRESH MEAT sort of came out of nowhere for me. I hadn't heard much about it other than the recent announcement that it will be in the Midnight section at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. Now that we've got an official trailer it's safe to say that I'm pleasantly surprised. A dark comedy with cannibals? Yes please!
When a dysfunctional gang's prison breakout goes violently wrong, they need a hideout in a hurry. Picking the McMansion of a middle-class family in the suburbs seems like a safe bet, until it becomes clear that this particular family has reintroduced some very old-fashioned cuisine to their table. Will the Tans escape the trap, or is there gangster in the casserole tonight? A gruesomely funny, no-holds-barred comedy with style to burn, FRESH MEAT will leave you hungry for more.
The flick stars Temuera Morrison, Leand Macadaan, Kate Elliot, Ralph Hilage, Hanna Tevita, Jack Shadbolt, Nicole Kawana, Will Robertso, and Kahn West. Now check out the trailer below.
