Hiker Meat, a project conceived by Shovlin and collaborators Mike Harte (Hiker Meat is an anagram of Mike Harte) and Euan Rodger, is a partial adaptation of an earlier work Lustfaust: A Folk Anthology 1976–81 (2003–6), an archive of material created by the fans and musicians of a fictional German noise band. Contained within this archive is a narrative sketch for an exploitation film entitled Hiker Meat, for which Lustfaust composed the soundtrack. Using these found notes as a starting point Shovlin produced a large body of work which acts as a homage to, and deconstruction of, exploitation horror films of the 1970s and 1980s.

Hiker Meat (US one sheet), is one of the many pieces of ephemera Shovlin created for a large installation at Grand Union, also comprised of an original script, casting photographs, title cards and a rough cut version of the film made up of scenes from hundreds of grind-house horror films. It is a supposed US cinema film poster for Hiker Meat and contains all of the attributes a US one sheet poster from that era might, such as the worn machine folds, and creases amounted from being on a teen bedroom wall thirty years ago.

Ephemera from the Hiker Meat archive has since been exhibited at Ibid, London, and MACRO, Rome.
