31 Days of Horror Day 11: "That's the LITTLE one? We can't fight these things! No way!"

Title of Movie: Feast

Actors: Balthazar Getty, Navi Rawat, Henry Rollins, Judah Friedlander, Josh Zuckerman, Jenny Wade,
Duane Whitaker, Jason Mewes, Eileen Ryan, Eric Dane, with Krista Allen, and Clu Gulager

Quotable Line: "It's just, it's been a while since someone's been horribly killed, and it seems like an opportune time for someone to be... well... offed."

Director: John Gulager


The Skinny: In a remote bar, costumers are advised by a newcomer to seal the place since hungry monsters will attack them in a couple of minutes. The man is immediately devoured and the clients organize a strategy to defend the place under siege of deadly creatures.

The Good: Feast is one of those movies where you don't know who is going to go next and the person you least suspect is the next one to die. That said, this movie delivers on the scares, the gore and the gross out factor in spades. The creatures are fierce and scary, with lots of sharp teeth, and the ability to reproduce within seconds of copulation. The acting is good for a movie of this type. I was surprised by the quality of this movie if nothing else. This is the movie that won the Project Greenlight competition and honestly, it was a lot of fun.

The Bad: Some of the acting in this movie is atrocious especially from the generally reliable Henry Rollins who has honestly done better work than in this movie. The "hero" gets offed entirely too quickly but that just adds to the tongue in cheek humor to the movie and it actually benefits from that.

The Ugly: "It's getting better, right?"

My final verdict: 4 monster babies out of 5.
