Thailand Lays On The Gore With MEAT GRINDER.
Subtle it aint but accurate it is and upcoming Thai horror picture Meat Grinder is forcing me to question whether I need to rethink my general dismissal of Thai production house Phranakorn Film. You see, Phranakorn tends to knock out films cheap and dirty, films that are hugely successful in their homeland but generally have poor production values and are of no interest outside Thai borders. But between this picture and previous Phranakorn offering Deep In The Jungle it appears that someone over there may have suddenly figured out the value of hiring decent DPs and tech staff and suddenly Phranakorn has two pictures in a row that actually look pretty good.
As the lads over at 24 Frames Per Second quite rightly point out this one is very likely intended as a cash in on the success of Five Star Entertainment's Art of the Devil franchise as it trades in the same sort of brutally explicit blood, gore and dismemberment. The plot? Looks to revolve around a noodle shop where you probably don't want to think too much about the meat supply. Hack, hack, chop, chop, it aint for the kiddies.
You'll find the full trailer and a shorter teaser below the break.
