I just watched this DVD last night. I loved it. Very good movie. I recommend it to everyone. Good looking zombies. Decent looking naked chicks. Poor acting and a cool concept of how the zombies came about.
I rank it "7 out of 10"
also watch the credits at the end I thought what they said was funny.

I like this one too. It hit all the things I need to enjoy a horror movie. Granted, that isn't much but it worked for me.

Nah, just another pic of Vyvian from the Young Ones. Thought I'd try it out for size... I have much goofier pics of myself I could use if I ever got a scanner.

I bought mine from a brick&mortar store (14.99) at a cheaper rate then the title's home page offers (I believe it was $30 on the site). The first disc I took home was blank, confirmed at the store when I returned it. Then the new disc will not load in my player, which is a pain in the ass. I have noticed that many of the cheaper discs (that is cheaply made) will not load in my player. It did load in my PS2.
I enjoyed the film... and the crew certainly did a whole lot with very little. The gunplay was more believeable then in some Hollywood flicks I have seen... lead me to wonder if anyone had gotten hurt durring the making of this movie.
The thing did get a little convoluted, and it pandered to the narrow... especially with the just-thrown-in-for kicks lesbian sex scene... the mentality that women are always 100% naked durring sex but men merely have to undo their flies (lets face it the reality is that guys are naked if sex is even a remote possibility)... and the addition of some pretty worthless characters.
Considering that this film probably had a budget of about $1000, I was very impressed. One sequence that is particularly noteworthy is an extended dolly shot durring a cops vs zombie scene. Also the make-up rivals some of the bigger budgeted films out there.
I could have done without El Diablo, the non-erotic lesbian sex scene and the out-of-left field addition of vampires... but all in all... its a fun film.

here you go hellbilly via diabolikdvd
From the depths of HELL they have returned to walk the EARTH!
Two ex-security agents discover what may be the real cause of what the TV news reports as animal attacks. Argenta (Claire Westby) and Shahrokh (Paul Pedrosa) are former employees of a company they knew to be conducting bizarre medical experiments. What has resulted are not animal attacks, but attacks by humans - turned into vicious, decomposing, cannibalistic zombies. Their efforts to stem the violence in vain, hunted by the authorities, Shahrokh and Argenta escape the city just as it is engulfed by chaos. Their only hope lies in finding and organizing the few remaining survivors. What they find - three vampire women armed with high-tech weaponry, a deranged & washed-up Mexican wrestler, a wounded soldier, and a scientist who may know more than he lets on - offer more questions than answers. These few must band together to defeat the hordes of the undead before they are themselves consumed by the new order, the MEAT MARKET?
Contains Cannibalism, graphic gore, male/female nudity, male/female sex, lesbian sex, frequent foul language, graphic depictions of decomposing corpses.
"I was very impressed with Meat Market and fully enjoyed it. I can see your references from Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead as well the Italian bunch of horrors like Zombi 2. Good make up and genuinely effective - I even looked over my shoulder on more than one occasion and I'm saying this from a veteran horror journalist! Viva Meat Market!"

When I put in "Meat Market" at imdb all I got was "Liebesmarkt (1973)" - A German sex film :D
This one sounds interesting though, I might check it out.

Zombies are hungry again in MEAT MARKET 3
Canadian filmmaker Brian Clement gave Fango the scoop that he’s gearing up to shoot the third in his MEAT MARKET series of zombie movies, and sent along the pics at left and below from some test footage he’s already shot. He describes this entry to us as “very much darker and creepier. I want to take everything I’ve learned about lighting and production design on the last two movies I’ve done, and apply it to a frightening and bloody zombie story.” That previous duo are EXHUMED and THE DEAD INSIDE, the latter of which we most recently updated you on here.
Clement’s storyline for MEAT MARKET 3 takes a different tack from the usual ghoul-survival scenario: “A young couple attempts to make their way to a rescue station during a worldwide crisis in which the dead return to life seeking living victims for sustenance,” he begins the synopsis. “When they arrive, the center is overrun by the undead and they seek refuge in a nearby abandoned house, and can only watch in horror as destruction and carnage ensue outside the windows. Low on food and water and deprived of sleep, their grasp on sanity begins to slip away. But they have one small hope that may allow them to battle their way across the war zone that was once the Garden City to what they hope is another survivor, and escape the maelstrom together. They fight not only with the reanimated dead, but with their own bodies and minds, as they hallucinate and slip in and out of consciousness.
“Rather than being trapped in a standard ‘characters trapped and slowly getting picked off’ scenario,” he continues, “they also have to contend with ‘real-life’ problems of needing food, etc., and how that affects them, and their ability to fight their way out due to weakness, fatigue and the accompanying lack of lucidity. I also want to depict one of these oft-mentioned but never-seen ‘rescue stations.’ The movie will be a blend of claustrophobic thriller, intense action and of course the requisite gore and destruction. I was given a pitch to do it by Cryptkeeper Films out of the UK, which put up the budget, and now I’m getting right down to work on it. I’m eager to apply everything I tried with lighting, set design and creepy stylistic touches on THE DEAD INSIDE to a gory zombie movie.”
The first two MEAT MARKETs are available on special-edition DVDs from SRS Cinema, and the EXHUMED disc can be purchased directly from Clement’s Frontline Films. The writer/director has also set up a MEAT MARKET 3 section of his site, and you can go directly to it here.
