1386: Priests from “The Ancient Order” place an indefinite curse on a man named Goza that requires him to feed off human flesh. 1986: Goza is now running a seafood restaurant and deli…



“… nearly all of the potential fun is stripped away quicker than a deli slicer can cut through a plastic foot. This doesn’t take itself too seriously and seems fully aware of how dumb it is, but that still doesn’t help matters. The one-liners and gags are lame, there are tons of scenes that seem to go on for an eternity, the continuity is awful and nearly all of the murders take place off-screen.” The Bloody Pit of Horror


“For a movie with such a deliberately exaggerated title, there’s very little gore and no real “zombie”. Customers complain about hair and jewelry being in their food so I wouldn’t really call him a “chef”, and “hell” isn’t even really a factor at all. All of that considered, somehow (despite what other reviewers may say) Gore-Met delivers.” Atomic Caravan


” … reeks of weed, Doritos, and old Reebok high-tops in the best of ways. It was made by adults on Super 8, but most likely influenced by ninth-graders playing Dungeons & Dragons while watching Evil Dead. Plus it’s only 67 minutes. Bonus!” Alamo Drafthouse Cinema


“The whole film is an exercise in padding. Out of its already brisk 70 minutes, about 20 minutes of that is actually plot. The rest is filled up with impromptu dance sequences featuring a few nude girls, a jazzy musical number of “Down to the Boardwalk”, shots of people drinking beer, and an extended sequence of someone trying to make a phone call.” The Zed Word

” …a crude, humorless, graphic, and somehow depressingly gratuitous slash-and gore piece – all of which could be good if it were funny or at least a little scary, but this one just doesn’t seem to work. Best appreciated for its title and that’s about it.” Videohound’s Complete Guide to Cult Flicks and Trash Pics


“Some call it a parody, but everyone agrees on one thing – it’s really, really unwatchable … features a distracting synthesizer score, and it’s inept in every other possible way.”
