Roadkill: The Last Days of John Martin (1994)

Director: Jim Van Bebber

Writer: Mark Gillespie, Jim Van Bebber

Composer: ???

Starring: Mark Gillespie, Marc Pitman, Maureen Allisse

More info: IMDb

Plot: A John offers a couple with a broken-down car a ride to the nearest gas station, little do they know he's actually taking them back to his place for dinner.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Probably not.

This is a short 15 minute gruesome film about a sick fuck who eats dead animals raw...

picks up a couple stranded on the highway, takes them back to his bachelor flat...

and kills them. 

There's not much story than that and it's all about blood, guts, killin' and nudity.  It's pretty fuckin' great and it's shot on 16 mm, looking like something made at least twenty years earlier.   The entire film is on YouTube (above).  This would be a fun short to play for a Halloween party between movies.
