Synopsis by Mark Deming
Kids discover that an old scary house is a lot scarier than they ever could have imagined in this gory horror outing. Four teenagers looking for a good time decide to have a party in an old house, that, according to local legend, is haunted. However, the kids soon discover that there's something worse than ghosts waiting for them -- the basement of the house is actually a secret laboratory set up as part of an undercover government defense project, and their latest project is a mutant creature that can be unleashed against our enemies. When the monster accidentally gets loose, the only hope for the kids is if government intelligence agents trying to keep the project under wraps can find and kill the creature before he finds them and tears them to bits. Shot and edited over a period of ten years, Carnivore was the first feature film from horror fans Joseph Kurtz and Kenneth Mader.
