Looks like I’ve been finding a couple of titles with the word “Feed” in it. Maybe this is all building up to the popular theme of cannibalism that is not as taboo today as we can see it explored in TV shows as well as movies more and more. From director Brandon Croft, the movie boasts that it draws inspiration from early Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson and Cabin in the Woods. Feed the Gods marks the second feature film from writer/director Braden Croft. His first picture, Hemorrhage, was received really well and certainly put the “psycho” back in “psycho killer”.
All I can say is that I wasn’t sure what this movie was about until I saw the poster and then read the synopsis where Bigfoot comes into play. And then I was like, “Oh! He’s a god to these hillbilly-type people.” Sometimes the best creature features don’t show the actual star of the film (the creature) until much later to build on the suspense. Movies in more recent memory like The Ring and The Host did well by only showing us glimpses of these supernatural and fabled creatures.
And the in-depth synopsis may pique your curiosity here:
When slacker/aspiring filmmaker Will (Shawn Roberts, Resident Evil: Afterlife) finds the parents of his adopted brother Kris (Tyler Johnston, The Killing), he sees the opportunity to get some closure for his brother, as well as maybe capture a heartwarming reunion on camera.
With Kris’ fiancé Brit (Emily Tennant, Jennifer’s Body) in tow, the three of them head out to discover this long-lost family. What they are unprepared for though, is what exactly the cryptic small town has in store for them. Weird locals abound and rumors of a Bigfoot creature haunting the area at first seem silly… but things quickly escalate into a frantic, scary and action-packed nightmare with more than a few casualties along the way.
And, without further delay, the trailer:
