Feast (2005)

Rating: A
Now here's a break from the ordinary that works! Netflix has been shoving the Feast trilogy in my face for a while now, and I finally obliged. Didn't expect much; in fact, I expected it to be yet another lame American attempt at horror-comedy. Lo, the humor is on-target and perfectly mixed with frenetic camera movement and quality gore effects. This is that perfect mix that is for some reason so difficult for me to find. Though the entire film--not that it's a lengthy film by any means--takes place in the same dilapidated western bar, it kept me entertained all the way through. And I can't say I've seen such a great use of on-screen profiles in a horror movie before, ever! Good thing I went ahead and snagged the next two installments: Sloppy Seconds and The Happy Finish. Hats off to John Gulager for this first installment.

HorrorBlips: vote it up!


  1. BAM THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT!! Feast is so fucking awesome, it is a total A in my book, a real surprise and a great convention breaker. Too bad the sequels rank #1 in my biggest disappointing sequels list..

  2. The first one is absolutely amazing, but what do you expect with Wes Craven, Matt Damon, and sometimes Ben Affleck in your back seat. Project: Greenlight did wonders for this movie. I did enjoy the second one, but they get worse as they go along for sure.

  3. Loved the first two parts, hated the third. I was taken aback when I saw those names as producers!
