Editorial Reviews

Nothing so appalling in the annals of horror has ever been seen before. When Mrs. Fremont hires crackpot Egyptian cultist Fuad Ramses to cater a party for her daughter, Suzette, she commits the culinary catastrophe of the century! Fuad immediately prepares a Blood Feast made from the grisly body parts of nubile young women. The world's first (and most notorious) "gore" film, "Blood Feast" is both shocking and hilarious. It's also the first of the infamous "blood trilogy" from director Herschell Gordon Lewis and producer Dave Friedman, who followed this perverse classic with the equally twisted "2000 Maniacs" and "Color Me Blood Red."

And when it comes right down to it, Lewis was the Edward D. Wood, Jr., of gore.
Robert Beveridge
The most important thing to remember about Blood feast as well as all of Lewis' gore films is that it's all meant to be fun.
Stanley Runk
The radio was ONLY turned on for us the people watching the movie so we would know what the plot is )s Now for the best.

This is one of those few movies where everything that everyone says about it is precisely true: Utterly barebones production, flatly pathetic acting, stilted and pointless dialogue, and lots and lots of ultra-phony gore. Of course, this is pretty undisputedly the first real gore film, so horror fans pretty much have to see this. And, even if it weren't so important historically it would be worth seeing anyway, cause it's pretty damn cool either way.

Fortunately, in making the first gore film they didn't go halfway. Sure, there are tons of films which are gorier then it now, it's still gory enough that if it were redone, shot for shot with realistic, modern effects, it wouldn't be allowed an R rating in a million years. You got flaying, leg severing, heart extracting, tongue ripping, brain, um, snatching etc. And, while the gore effects are incredibly dated, they aren't quite as cheap and old as I would have imagined. The blood itself actually holds up fairly well, and looks better than much of the stage blood you'd see over the next 20 years or so. It's actually red! It is also delightfully shameless, perpetually leering at the simplistic effects in a way that makes Fulci look almost reserved by comparison. For example, fairly late in the film there is a 42 second pan over a flaying victim. (i.e. someone just covered with fake blood) 42 seconds may not sound that long when I just say it, but when you're actually watching it it's pretty damn funny, and seems to go on forever. It's also got some odd quirks, such as how virtually all the violence is performed in utter silence, with no sound effects, only music. It manages to make these scenes somehow poignant, in spite of the overall laughable nature of the project.

"Blood Feast" is the most famous work of exploitation auteur Herschell Gordon Lewis. Released in 1963, it is considered the first slasher film, the one that spawned all of the imitators: "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Friday the 13th", etc. Despite (or because of) its questionable acting and really fake blood, it is a classic.
Something Weird Video has given "Blood Feast" a great tribute with its DVD version. A beautiful print of the film was used, all of the garish colors are presented in their full glory. It contains one of the most interesting audio commentaries on a DVD that I have ever listened to. Director Herschell Gordon Lewis and producer David F. Friedman provide insights into everything you've ever wanted to know about "Blood Feast" - the casting, the special effects, the creation of Lewis' signiature music score, and much more. There are so many great anecdotes shared on the commentary: how Pine Sol was used to get rid of the smell of the sheep tongue (used for the infamous tongue removal scene) since it was being stored in a refrigerator and the power went out, how they had to spend money on a freeze frame at the optical effects lab because an actress pretending to be dead couldn't hold her breath (you can see her failed attempts in the collection of nearly 50-minutes of outtakes included on the DVD), a pizza parlor was used for the scene where the maniacal Fuad Ramses cooks a human leg in an oven, and how they first realized the film was going to be a phenomenon when they got stuck in a traffic jam on the way to its Peoria, Illinois drive-in premiere. P.S. - Bonus for trivia buffs: Robert Sinise, the editor of "Blood Feast", is the father of actor Gary Sinise.
The DVD of "Blood Feast" is a must own for fans of the film and film buffs thanks to the great quality of the film to DVD transfer and the extras included by Something Weird Video.

When I first heard of this movie, I didn't know what to expect. Sure the description of the movie says "nothing so appaling in the annals of horror" and it's extremely shocking and gory. In my mind I was thinking this movie was made in 1963 how gory can it be? Well to say the least I was impressed and suprised by how gorey the killing scenes are.

Mrs. Fremont wants to do something special for her daughters' party. Knowing her daughter is deeply interested in egyptian culture she hires Fuad Ramses to cater the party. He begins preparing the "Blood Feast" by murdering young women and taking parts of they're body to add to the feast.

The acting is pretty bad, it's actually comical, the story is pretty weak as well and yes the blood looks like bright red paint, but come on, this movie was made over 40 years ago, I'm suprised this was even shown at any drive in movie back then. Sure the effects are dated but no gore hound should be disappointed! As some have said before me. This movie is where it all started. I recommend this movie to the avid horror fan!

Just about every gorehound and exploitation film buff knows about this one because it's considered by many as the first gore movie ever made (it was actually FIEND WITHOUT A FACE which started it all but don't let that get to you). Advertising salesman and english professer, Herschell Gordon Lewis directed Playboy-playmate, Connie Stevens (despite her good looks she's a REALLY bad actress) as a bimbo-ish history student who shows a lot of intrest in Ancient Egyptian history. Connie's birthday is coming up soon and her mum wants to suprise her with an Egyptian meal. She go's down to the store and asks the sinister shop-owner (who trys his best to put on a Bela Lugosi-type voice) what he can do. To prepare the feast the shop-owner has to go around dismembering young girls. My favourite scene involves a teenager crying his heart out after his girlfriend gets it from the shop-owner: his crying is so fake that your pants will be dripping after the film is over. This was a drive-in killer, by the way and usually played in a double-bill with H.G. Lewis's 2000 MANIACS. Look out for some other great H.G. Lewis titles such as SCUM OF THE EARTH, COLOR ME BLOOD RED, THE GRUSOME TWOSOME, A TASTE OF BLOOD and THE GORE-GORE GIRLS which are all avalible on Something Weird.
