Ultra gory remake of H.G Lewis’ classic Blood Feast hits theaters next month
Director Marcel Walz’s Blood Feast remake is a weird, arch and Eurotrashy re-mount of H.G. Lewis’ groundbreaking splatter classic and it offers many perverse, bizarre pleasures, including an intense and controlled performance by actor Robert Rusler (Vamp, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2) as Fuad Ramses, a family man who opens up a diner in France and proceeds to lose his marbles and gain an ungodly appetite for human flesh. Indie goddess Sadie Katz and horror legend Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2) also appear.
Synopsis: 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 is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess Ishtar. He becomes more and more allured by the goddess 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. He starts to prepare a ritual feast to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with BLOOD, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness, until he is no more than the goddesss puppet; and she thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter too
Today, Walz let us know that his macabre and super-bloody remake will be hitting U.S. theaters on April 28th from Medallion Releasing. Great news for fans of scrappy, odd and disgusting indie horror cinema.
