BIG MEAT EATER


BIG MEAT EATER
   Film (1982). BCD Entertainment. Dir Chris Windsor, starring George Dawson, Big Miller, Howard Taylor, Andrew Gillies. Screenplay Windsor, Laurence Keane. 82 mins. Colour.
   This Canadian musical pastiche of sf and horror films - a sort of designer midnight movie about an INVASION by two ALIENS of a small town in the 1950s - waves its low budget like a flag and, despite incoherences, is cheerfully enjoyable. The aliens are played by toy robots. The plot, which defies description, involves a tank of disgusting waste from the butcher's shop in which is being formed radioactive baloneum (much desired by the aliens), a huge, murderous butcher's assistant who sings jolly songs like "Bagdad Boogie", the reanimated corpse of Mayor Rigatoni, a universal language, a car turned into a SPACESHIP, and other absurdities. The target audience appears similar to that for The ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. Everyone in the film seems to be having a very good time.
