Don’t you just hate it when you and your mates are out camping at a secluded site and here comes this old man trundling along offering some fat and delicious burgers, but then you find out that they’re actually made of human flesh and now a supernatural creature is hunting you and your friends for your transgressions? Gets me every time.
But seriously, the burgers in this trailer made my mouth water, and I’m sure they’re worth whatever horror befalls these campers. I mean, you don’t have to worry about the calories if you’re going to be disemboweled, right?
The Young Cannibals, coming to the Cannes market through DevilWorks, looks like a fun and weird time. I also dig the look of the monster, something like a cross between a Licker and the Nemesis from Resident Evil. I’m not exactly sure why an old man is feeding teens people burgers and then sicking a monster on them--for fun? a ritual? Why doesn’t the monster hunt the old man? I find it hard to believe that he hasn’t even nibbled on his own secret recipe--especially when the burgers look that good. My stomach’s starting to growl just thinking about it.
If I were in this movie, there’s no doubt I’d be a dead man. I imagine myself running as the monster tears away my right arm, the other campers yelling, “Kyle! Stop faffing about, you right chuffer!” as I reach the table and take up a second burger. The creature beats me to death with my own legs, but I die with grease on my face and meat in my stomach. There’s no better way to go.
The Young Cannibals has no set release or anything, but it certainly looks like one worth keeping an eye on.
