Andrew's (Keith Collins) a fairly good-looking and charming guy who never seems to have much trouble picking up girls and taking them home with him - but they matter very little to him as he's deeply in love with Terri (Daniela Rivera), and he especially admires what a good mother she is for her son. Problem is, Terri isn't at all into him, she finds him creepy, and does her best to keep him at arm's length, turning him down every time he asks her out ... and that's for the better, really, because Andrew doesn't really pick up all these women for the sex but to kill them, cook them, and eat them up together with his perverted aunt Claire (Geri Reischl) who has brought him up and now lives (and has sex) with him.

Of course, the disappearance of all these women doesn't go unnoticed, and investigating the case, detectives Benash (Brandon Ruckdashel) and O'Brien (Chris Wilkes) stumble upon Terri, who has seen Andrew with one of the victims - but when detective O'Brien wants to question Andrew, he runs into a death trap.

O'Brien's disappearance worries detective Benash to no end, and now he's convinced Andrew's the killer of the piece, but since O'Brien has a history with alcohol and is known for his drinking binges, nobody takes his absence from duty all that seriously ... upon which Benash asks Terri to play bait for him and go out on a date with Andrew after all - and from there on the situation gets completely out of hand ...

 

The Meat Puppet is a clever little serialkiller movie that actually manages to have the audience identify with its villain for the most part of its running time without that feeling just wrong: Sure, Andrew's a sick bastard, but he's also extremely vulnerable, he has had a childhood filled with violence that explains a lot about his current behaviour, and in a way, he's only the puppet of his aunt Claire, who seems to relish in leading him astray. This is of course helped by a multi-layered performance by Keith Collins (who also penned the story for the film) and a restrained directorial effort that for the most part stays away from becoming too drastic and losing the audience that way - but what's hinted at is sure enough sickening enough once you play the scene in your head. Above that, the film is also very nicely paced and has shocks and suspense in all the right places, making this a really tight little genre effort!
