Feast Review


Patrons locked inside a bar are forced to fight monsters.

Feast (2005) is an American action comedy horror movie that has a runtime of 95 minutes and was filmed in Lone Star Studios - 12800 Foothills Boulevard, Sylmar, Los Angeles, California, USA. Feast is the first installment in the Feast series and was followed by Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds (2008) and Feast 3: The Happy Finish (2009). Director John Gulager (Piranha 3DD (2012), He Was a Quiet Man (2007), Feast II: Sloppy Seconds (2008)) did a spectacular job making this horrifying (in a good way) movie. The movie contains a lot of sexual scenes involving intercourse, but there is no nudity, just a lot of bedroom action. The film also contains extreme violence that viewers with a weak stomach might want to skip this movie as some scenes are pretty graphic. Some of the graphic scenes are: a man’s face is seen being peeled off, eyes being pulled out of its socket, a man’s head being ripped off his body, a female’s leg being chopped off, and many more graphically gruesome scenes. The movie has some frightening scenes that might make viewers jump out a few times and squeamish scenes that will make you want to barf. Executive producing is Wes Craven, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Chris Moore.

The movie starts by showing Hero (Eric Dane - Grey’s Anatomy (2005), Marley & Me (2008), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Burlesque (2010)) walking into a bar covered in blood warning everyone of the impending danger. It did not take long for Hero to depart this movie as he is soon after is pulled through the window by a monster and is decapitated. A female, called the Heroine (Navi Rawat - Numb3rs (2005), House of Sand and Fog (2003), Thoughtcrimes (2003)) enters soon after and claims that she was Hero’s wife. It did not take long for more action scenes to be seen as a monster rips Vet (Anthony "Treach" Criss - The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Up in the Air (2009), 8 Mile (2002), Love and a Bullet (2002)), and Jason Mewes has his face peeled off. The movie did not shy from graphic sexual encounters with the monsters as one of the monsters tries to penetrate a deer’s head that is nailed to the wall. The people on the bar have no help coming because the only phone in the bar is now not working. There are nonstop action scenes with comedy, grossed out moments and bloodbaths from the beginning of the movie to the ending.

I encourage all horror movie fans to see this film but if you are the type of person that does not like, sexual content then maybe it is best for you to stay away from this movie. The entire movie is basically comprised of sexual acts of one kind or another. There is also nonstop comedy relief with continuous violence that indulges in graphic details so squeamish viewers should also stay clear of this movie. The actors did a great job with their performances, and the cinematographer did an excellent job. The special effects and makeup department did the best job in this movie. Overall, the movie was an exceptionally good entertaining watch but I could have done less with the overwhelming sexual content.
