Storyline

Andrew "Drew" Shelton has it all - looks, money, women and an insatiable taste for human flesh. His vanity is only surpassed by his obsession with finding the perfect tasting meal and it has fueled his appetite for killing, preparing and cooking beautiful women. He throws lavish dinner parties and serves his guests his latest victim and one unlucky guest becomes the main course of his next get together. When a no-nonsense detective starts putting the pieces together, it leads to a game of cat and mouse that only increases the stakes. But is Drew the soul-less, cold-blooded killer that he appears to be? Or is he just the Meat Puppet for a more sadistic mind? Written by Beach Point Productons

The Meat Puppet: Fails to tick a single box
16 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Meat Puppet would fall under the torture porn category, yet has no actual torture porn. Yes I know that makes no sense but bear with me.

It tells the story of a man with an abusive upbringing who now grown up has his share of mental health issues. He lives with the woman who raised him in place of his parents (Who he has sex with by the way despite her referring to him as her son). He repeatedly brings girls back to his house, imprisons them, tortures them, kills them and then erm............cooks and eats them.

So thats the plot, and it's executed as well as you'd expect. And by that I mean terribly. No "Torture porn" as you'd expect, no interesting plot, no decent soundtrack, no competent cinematography, a forgettable cast and lackluster script.

What I'm trying to get across is that this is a mess of a film, poorly constructed and literally ticks none of the boxes you would expect and has no redeeming qualities.

Whats makes matters worse is how shilled this film is. The ratings are clearly bias! I don't mean that in an arrogant fashion claiming that nobody could possibly like this film, I simply mean let's not kid ourselves about the number of 10's it has recieved.

The Good:

That would be a no

The Bad:

Made my skin crawl in places

Fails to meet already low expectations

Has no redeeming features, everything ranges from poor to pitiful

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

A torture porn movie with no torture porn is like watching one of those terrible Kardashian shows. Oh wait, no that is torture.

Shill ratings damage a movies credibility not add to it
