Irish Zombie Cow

Dead Meat

Dead Meat (2004) begins with mad cow disease setting off a plague that turns all the mulchies throughout the Irish countryside into brain-dripping zombies. The emphasis here is dripping – oozing, cherry-red brains flowing like chunky honey.

Body parts, particularly heads, eyes, arms and soft, chewy legs, are chopped, popped and dismembered with the same amount of ease one would apply to Gumby. So no plot necessary, really.

Two people, after assorted run-ins with the undead, meet a marble-mouthed countryman and his cadaverous wife and hop in their SUV and make for a safe zone the other side of Zombie Killarney.

Two of the movie’s funniest scenes happen here. The car gets stuck in the mud and zombie kids surround the vehicle and pound on the windows while the Irishman yells, “F*ck off! F*ck off!” Heh.

Then a suitably gruesome zombie cow bashes through the window, bites the wife on the head, dragging her out to be eaten alive. (Presumably with some seasonal stuffed marrow squash and a side of boxty.) The final zombie siege at an abandoned castle will mess up the inside of your pants but good.

Don’t let vegetables get in the way of seeing this one.
