Here’s a belated review for Danny Mulheron’s Fresh Meat, which premiered at the festival last month.
Evan Dickson chimes in with his mixed thoughts: “Fresh Meat is a good deal of fun. The gore is heavy and prevalent, but so day-glo happy that it never becomes truly disturbing” he explains. “It’s a loose, ramshackle film that might grow tiresome in spots, but if you can latch onto and invest yourself in Tevita’s character you’ll zero in on a satisfying coming of age story.”

Starring Temuera Morrison, Nicola Kawana and Hanna Tevita, “After a poorly executed escape from the police, a gang of dysfunctional criminals flees to the suburbs and gets more than it bargained for when it crash lands in the garage of an upper-class Maori family whose refined palates have developed a taste for human flesh. This action-packed horror comedy tells a blood-spattered tale of basement butchery and shifting allegiances as these unlikely adversaries enter a deadly showdown.“
