4.0 out of 5 stars Dinner is Served, 14 Aug 2009
This review is from: Feast [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A group of country redknecks and assorted passers by are holed up in an isolated, back of beyond diner on a dusty highway, when a blood covered man clutching a shotgun bursts through the door screaming to do as he says if they want to live. So begins 86 minutes of relentless, gore splattered carnage, as the cast attempt to survive against a ravenous family of carnivorous creatures beyond your most demented nightmares. Where they come from is never fully explained - they just appear from out of the desert in search of meat. The gore quotient of this movie is extremely high as one by one our heroes are dismembered, dis-embowelled, torn limb from limb, dispatched and eaten in ever more frenzied and inventive ways by the nasties. While being violent and bloody, the movie has a nice streak of sly wit running through it which nicely offsets the savage brutality on show. The set is awash with gallons of the red stuff as the beseiged group are devoured one by one, helped by some truly disgusting, stomach churning special effects. Humour plays a nice part, as shown at the beginning of the film, when there is a "freeze frame" to introduce each character with a fact or three and an estimate of their survival odds. The ensemble cast is first rate, including the likes of Jason Mewes - as an inevitable slacker and screen veteran Clu Gulager playing the boozy, verbally obscene barman. Feast is a whole lot of fun to watch. It`s bloody, messy, gleefully violent and wonderfully over the top entertainment the like of which has`nt been seen for quite a while. The Blu-ray picture while not being top of the range, is far superior to the standard-def DVD. Audio is pretty aggressive, providing a good energetic mix. The disc has absolutely no extras - shame on Optimum. Horror movie fans should love Feast, it`s insanely fast paced and gory fun, with a good cast of characters.
