Director John Gulager’s Feast, a film I have been dying to watch and finally did.. Did it live up to all the good things I heard about it ? in a word--YES !!! this was an AWESOME movie. A low budget gem . Lots of gore and one liners.. My kind of movie !!
The story revolves around a group of losers all hanging around a desert bar on one lonely night. Their night is interrupted when two characters called The Hero (Eric Dane),and the Heroine (Navi Rawat) arrive with several ugly, filthy,man eating monsters hot on their tails. The poor patrons of the bar spend the rest of the movie fighting to stay alive.
From the opening scene, this movie is fast, offensive, gory, and violent .Everything a horror fan could dream of from gore to horror to humor .This film has a fine way of exploiting every cliché about horror/monster movies that has ever existed
I loved the fact that most of th characters don't even have names. They are known simply by their stereotypes. Coach, Honey Pie, the Hero and the Heroine, Beer Guy, Bozo, Tuffy, Bartender, and The Veteran. It's almost as though the writers did this in order to say, "Don't even bother to learn their names, because they most likely won't be around long enough for you to attach yourself to any of them anyway." and they even give a life expectancy with their descriptions ( which flash onscreen much like the rules of Zombieland )
The blood is awesome (no CGI here!) and there's buckets of the stuff! The monsters are great and add the perfect mix of terror and humor to the situation. As I said before, no depravity is left unturned. The monsters are hungry, dangerous, insane, and remarkably lusty. One particular scene stands out - a smaller, immature monster actually humps the face of one of its victims !! Like I said ,they went for the Depravity Oscar with this film :)
I loved the way the film was shot, the creatures, the entire cast of characters ( Henry Rollins, Navi Rawat, Jason Mewes ) !
Simply put, You must see this film! Words can't describe the awesome!
Thank you Project Greenlight
