A short horror film set in an America in which cannibalism is legal

Greg Hanson and Casey Regan channel an older B-movie aesthetic for their short horror film Meat Me in Plainville. After all the livestock in America die off, cannibalism becomes legal with unexpected consequences.


Despite being apparently set in the "future" year 1994, Meat Me in Plainville debuted in 2012 at the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival. It takes its conceit and turns it into something akin to a zombie movie where anyone could be a flesh-craving monster.

Just to be legal, cannibalism, as in the act of eating human flesh, isn't necessarily illegal in the US. It's obviously illegal to kill someone without their consent (and even with their consent, depending on the state), and it's often illegal to desecrate corpses for anything other than organ retrieval purposes, but ... eating a piece of a human who voluntarily offered a piece of themselves, while alive, might be legal.

(artiofab does not suggest doing such a thing in order to test the legality of it)
