After a pretty successful festival run, Medallion Releasing will be releasing Blood Feast in some sort of theatrical run on April 28th.
This new take on the Herschell Gordon Lewis classic “delivers a full serving of gore,” says Chris Cofell, while Benedict Seal says it “has the makings of a cult classic.“
Fuad Ramses and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long, lonely nights he becomes allured by goddess Ishtar as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms. After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness, until he is no more than the goddess’s puppet…
Blood Feast was directed by Marcel Walz, written by Philip Lilienschwarz and stars Robert Rusler, Sophie Monk and Caroline Williams.
