Thirty-one days of Horror.
For the whole month of October I’ll be watching and reviewing one horror film each day!
Feast is a low budget creature feature with a ragtag cast and a shit load of practical effects. However it’s probably most famous for being one of the films to come out of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s early 00’s reality show, Project Greenlight.
Directed by John Gulager and spawning two sequels, Feast feels very of its time but also very 90’s. If that makes sense. Maybe it just feels cheap? The pumping rock soundtrack, cheesey gags and meta humour is achingly 2000’s, but considering we were at the height of the remake craze, it’s nice to see something that was an homage to the past instead of another straight up remake.
The cast features Jason Mewes paying himself, Judah Friedlander who may as well be playing himself, Balthazar Getty and Henry Rollins.
A group of patrons are trapped inside a bar while monsters attempt to get inside to kill them. It’s as simple as that. Feast is full of bad jokes, crude sex scenes and tons of violence and gore. Pretty much exactly what you want from a good exploitation horror! Even the kid gets eaten!
I enjoyed Feast, it was dumb fun, self aware and Un-PC. The type of film we don’t see too much any more, but that you don’t mind once in a while. It’s always nice seeing Balthazar Getty show up too.
Feast is a SyFy level movie with a Hollywood attitude. Worth watching at least once. I’m looking forward to checking out the sequels now!
