Raw Meat (1972)
dir: Gary Sherman
watch the trailer
view on Netflix

When a politician disappears in the London Underground and two college students are the last to see him, an investigation is lead by Inspector Calhoun played by Donald Pleasence. Horror fans will recognize Pleasence as Dr. Samuel Loomis from the Halloween series. The movie bounces between following the story of the college kids, the inspector and the killer. I don’t want to give too much away, but I think the phrase ‘subway dwelling cannibals’ is enough to spark interest. The first 20 minutes are kind of slow and really don’t point to the film being a horror movie at all until we are met with a long slow panning shot of a dank subway tunnel occupied by some gruesome sights accompanied by a tedious water dripping sound that sets the mood going forward. The climax ultimately leaves a bit to be desired. The graphic design nerd in me loved the simple 70’s style title cards.

Relevant lyrics:
Crawling survivors
Are screaming for life on their knees
Soon to be discovered
Stench-filled carcasses underneath
