Just when you thought you were safe from Egyptian rituals...



A caterer and shop owner in suburban Miami, known by the local community only as Fuad Ramses, has something special planned. When the caterer is offered the opportunity to cater a party, he decides to prepare something that hasn't been done in over 5,000 years. Little do the partygoers realise, that Fuad Ramses has planned a blood repairment; a process that involves cut up body parts from various women, to bring back life to a lethargic Egyptian Goddess.



Blood Feast is technically terrible in just about every sense of the word, but in this case, it isn't exactly a bad thing. No matter how awful, or awfully fantastic you think this film is, it's hard to argue against the fact that this is a culturally significant feat; amongst not only the likes of horror, but as a important milestone within the history of cinema.

no more cherry pie for you


Like with many of Herschell Gordan Lewis's creations, Blood Feast is riddled with just about everything screaming b-grade; including acting and writing bad enough to make The Bold And The Bold Beautiful blush, as well as over dwelling proudly with its deliciously cheap production values. This stupidly fun, incredible indulgence of graphic violence, marks a fantastic beginning to the now ever popular 'splatter' genre. Although this is far from being the director's best work, it is undoubtedly his most necessary. With all that being said, Blood Feast is at the least a film that can often keep you thoroughly entertained…. just as long as you don't think about it too much.



For those true gore hounds and horror fanatics, Blood Feast is a definite must see; otherwise, well I'll let you make that call.
