TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 11 October 2017
In this 2005 survivor style horror a number of customers get trapped inside a roadside bar by vicious sex craving creatures. The question is, will any survive?
The opening intro which gives a short Bio to each character is both informative but also annoying and could have been incorporated more into the story [lose a *]. Once the action starts there is a very good sense of panic as the survivors inadvertently cause more damage to themselves than the creatures [regain a *]. And many of the comments, logic and reactions are actually seem quite typical of what many would do and say.
The single disc opens to three trailers before offering play, select scene, special features [making of, the blood & guts, Blood on the cutting room floor, out-takes, theatrical trailer] and set-up [5.1 or stereo]. Rated 18 this contains scenes with sexual content, profanity [including F, C & P words] and lots of squirty blood and gore. This may be tongue in cheek humour but it does have a few jumpy moments and some gross out scenes so it’s not for the squeamish, or there again that’s exactly who it ‘s for! Not a classic, but much under-rated and there are two sequels :o)

A cast of colourful caricatures are draped around a grubby American bar one night, when they are suddenly attacked by a gang of monsters, dressed in what appears to be Lady Gaga's meat dress! And as the patrons of the bar are besieged, it soon becomes clear that the monsters have only two objectives: to eat the cast and spawn more of their kind...

This had been talked about and recommended to me several times, so I thought I'd give it a viewing. And by and large I liked what I saw. The characters are okay with plenty of them biting the dust, as the monsters attack the pub they're sat in, like whirling dervishes. The film is fast paced and has a lot of energy and coming in at a little over 80 minutes, it just about gets away with it's running time....just! There's plenty of gore to be had, but one of the biggest downsides to this is the frenzied camera work, which doesn't dwell on the anything more than a nano~second before zooming off somewhere else. Resulting in confused action, which gets rather irritating quite quickly. Feast doesn't take itself seriously one iota and fright fans looking for any kind of actual scares or chilling horror might want to bear this in mind before proceeding. The humour is largely puerile but in fairness fits the movie like a surgical glove.
Overall, Feast is a flashy, noisy, gory fan~horror that although may not be a classic, is certainly fun. Recommended for people who liked Maximum Overdrive [DVD], From Dusk Till Dawn [Blu-ray] and Planet Terror [Blu-ray], amongst others..

The UK bluray has the kind of print you would expect for a new movie, but with a chronic lack of any extras whatsoever!!

3.75/5 for what it is, rounded up to four. Although if you greatly like the style of movies I mentioned, feel free to add an extra star.

This film is surely what the words 'an enjoyable romp' were intended for. I only heard of Feast thanks to Amazon, else I might never have sampled the shameless, gory delights it had to offer.

Feast, admittedly, has borrowed heavily from the equally tongue-in-cheek Tremors; the fundamental difference are the creatures. Still, don't let that put you off, it's as good as if not better than the latter.

Now, the intro was an absolute cracker and wonderfully stylised; very similiar to Zombieland's 'rules' but basically a device to introduce each character, a brief biog and chances of survival. Brilliant, just brilliant. No needless 'build-up' just straight into the action. Around the 15/2o minute mark is when it all kicks-off and from then on it's man-eating creatures versus barricaded-in-a-bar redneck types in the middle of Nevada (or whathaveyou).

That is literally all there is to the film. Heck, what more do you want; Casablanca? Another great thing about the flick is the deaths of the most unlikely candidates which nicely turns the conventional on its head. Despite its small budget it does well with the SFX although the only bug-bear is there are a couple of blink-and-you-miss-it scenes due to the speed of the creatures.

Other than that minor gripe, a quality no-frills horror that would be perfect for a lads' night in with beers and munchies.

Buon appetito!

The original feast movie is still just as classic as when it originally came out, very awesome horror movie that's original and completely insane, the story revolves around a group of misfit characters that unluckily are trapped together one night in a bar trying to survive the night from a pack of vicious killer monsters that mysteriously with no origin come out of no-where, the pace of he movie is great with a few twists and turns that keep you guessing who may survive the ordeal, there's plenty of gross-out over the top gore and blood and monster madness all done on a great budget, this is certainly one to pick up for a good time, great cast too of a few famous faces.

DVD has a decent picture quality.
Features include a making of, outtakes, bloopers and more.
Pal region 2, 83-mins, 2005.

This is an awesome film of that there is no doubt. However this particular release is poor. For a company who pride themselves on releasing the most extreme versions of their movies it appears that Dimension Extreme has been neutered for this film. It may well be Unrated but it is certainly cut compared to the original DVD Region 1 release which thankfully I still have. Shame on you Dimension Extreme... If you don't own this film already by all means go for it and enjoy it. However if like me you are planning to upgrade to Bluray forget it and stick with the dvd. For UK buyers this is region free as stated and is loaded with extras; the only good thing going for it.....

Missing is the second before the alien and the woman are killed. Decide on your own but I want my movies "untouched". 5 Stars for the movie 3 for this version.
