There's as much gore as bore in this bloody mess from H.G. Lewis.

Blood Feast is the granddaddy of gore films.  This "movie" is nothing more than gory set pieces padded out with "acting" from this cast of sleepwalking actors.  Everyone either goes through the motion or in the one case of Fuad Rhames over acts, sweats and bulges his eyes at ever opportunity.  You know you're in for a treat with all the blood in the opening credits.  Despite it's reputation for being one of the first (stage) blood and (butcher) guts films of the genre you'll also remember that this is a H.G. Lewis picture and you'll wonder why he's such a prolific filmmaker.

If you want to see where it all began then this is the picture you want to see.  But if you have never seen an H.G. Lewis film before you'll be in for a surprise by his static camera work and cue card readings.
There's as much gore as bore in this bloody mess from H.G. Lewis. There's as much gore as bore in this bloody mess from H.G. Lewis. There's as much gore as bore in this bloody mess from H.G. Lewis.

Quick Tip by . September 24, 2010
Blood Feast is an important film in gory horror history as it pushed the envelope much further than ever before. Coming six years before Night of the Living Dead, it takes up the vivid technicolor gore torch introduced by Hammer in the late 50s and helped to eschew in 20 years of truly transgressive cinema...
