Making its L.A. premiere next month
Dark Sky Films has announced Bitter Feast, the first movie in its new production-distribution arrangement with Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix, will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June.
Bitter Feast, a tale about a vengeful TV chef, was written and directed by Joe Maggio, creator of the acclaimed indies Virgil Bliss and Paper Covers Rock. The film is the first release in a multi-film production agreement between Glass Eye Pix and Dark Sky Films, the horror subsidiary of the MPI Media Group.
James LeGros (The Last Winter, Phantasm 2) stars as Peter Grey, an overzealous television chef. When notoriously snarky food blogger J.T. Franks (The Blair Witch Project, Hatchet) writes a particularly nasty review of Grey’s food, it pushes the temperamental chef over the edge. He kidnaps the writer and keeps him chained up in a basement, where he presents him with a serious of deceptively simple food challenges â from preparing a perfect egg over easy to grilling a steak precisely medium rare â then punishes him sadistically for anything less than perfection.
Larry Fessenden and renowned Chef Mario Batali also star.
