Verdict on Cold Meat
Cold Meat is a horror thriller following a quiet man who ends up having an accident during a snowstorm. He gets trapped and stranded waiting for the storm to pass. However, he has his own secrets that come back to haunt him.
This is a horror that thrives on the environment created. It uses the snowstorm to create isolation and spin what we expected on its head. This is effective and brings us down a tension-filled story that keeps us guessing as to where it will go next. The cold delivery from Allen Leech elevates the situation too. However, where this movie struggles is showing us the true course of time involved. For example, it feels like somebody would have done some searching even with the bad conditions outside. In the end. This is an effective horror that gets the chilling performance it desires.
