FLESHEATER

Bill Hinzman, USA, 1988, Vinegar Syndrome, Horror

"Halloween just got fun again."
— BLEEDING SKULL!

In 1986, Bill Hinzman ("First Zombie" from George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) was recognized by a fan at a horror convention. Inspired by this moment, Hinzman grabbed a 16mm camera and made the world's first (and only) DIY zombie movie that takes place on Halloween—FLESHEATER! On Halloween night, a group of twentysomethings take a hayride through the woods. At the same time, First Zombie (Hinzman) is resurrected from his grave with an army of bloodthirsty, undead pals. A sincere, ultra-fun, lo-fi gore epic, FLESHEATER is a fitting tribute to Romero’s chilling masterpiece, updating the setting to the late 1980s while piling on the gut-munching, throat-ripping, and limb-tearing action. Newly restored in 4K from the original 16mm camera negative!
