review by
Mike Haberfelner

On her way to Las Vegas, Cherry's (Morgan Boland) car breaks down in a town in the middle of nowhere, USA, where there isn't even a hotel - but since Cherry has to stay somewhere until the car's fixed again, she accepts Floyd's (Steve Golla) offer to stay in the flat above his meat shop, and as payment she's to help out a bit. You see, Floyd's shop has been going downhill ever since mama (Catherine Wilcox Nash) died, and his siblings, psychotic Sis (Stacey Weber) and slow-brained Neddy (Don Markus) aren't really that much help. It sounds like a good enouch offer, also since Floyd seems a decent enough guy, doesn't come on to her - and after all, what's Cherry to do in a small town like this anyways, she might as well work to earn her keep rather than spend money on her room.

Then though, unbeknowest to Cherry, Neddy kills a customer (Susan Bibby), and in order to keep themselves from being discovered, the siblings mix the customer's flesh in with the other meat - and it becomes a hit. So before long, Floyd sends Neddy off to do some more killing for constant meat supply, and the shop becomes the talk of town, so much so that the meat-crazy mayor (Charles Ramsey) makes Floyd the main supplier of the annual meat festival. That said, all the killings of course can't remain hidden forever ...

 

Now ok, Main Street Meats doesn't tell the most original of stories, and not in the most original of ways - but it's really good at what it does, creating a retro drive-in feeling without banking on the nostalgia factor too heavily, giving the whole thing a Herschell Gordon Lewis vibe (even if it's not nearly as explicit as Lewis' most outrageous films) and having it all carried by a light-footed directorial effort and a fine ensemble cast, with Morgan Boland deserving special mention as she really makes the most out of probably the least colourful character in the movie!
