The mining injustices of The Stars Look Down, transmuted into return-of-the-oppressed horror Full Review
CinePassion
Sep 25, 2009
Rating: 2/4 -- It's undermined by several vast improbabilities in the script and by the painfully inept performance of one of its leads, David Ladd. Full Review

This under-rated British horror has the ragged edge and grim tone of a film made two years later - The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- Donald Pleasence is given free rein to pretty much play Calhoun as he pleases, and if the portrayal is somewhat fanciful, it's also incredibly engaging. Full Review

Product Description:

This artfully constructed slasher film has retained a cult following since its brief theatrical release in America in 1973. Gary Sherman (WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE) intended the scuzzy, atmospheric work to be an allegory for the changes brought by the collapse of the British class system.

A young couple spies a sickly drunk in London's underground railway system. The man is discovered to be a displaced member of British upper class, and his story leads to the unearthing of a literally underground society. The British police (led by character actor Donald Pleasence) follow a trail of tube station crimes and stumble upon a group of former subway construction workers who were trapped in a tunnel collapse during the Victorian era. Those who survived resort to extreme measures, including cannibalism--and now they must be stopped. The film is notable for its use of gore and visceral detail to tell a story, and particularly for its imaginative sound design. Deeply influential on early 21st-century films like 28 DAYS LATER, RAW MEAT is an unusual horror film that demonstrates depth and thoughtfulness.
