Editorial Reviews

Sinking its teeth into the rotting flesh of our paranoid times, Feeding the Masses is a biting social commentary and a vicious, brutal and apocalyptic zombie film directed by Richard Griffin and written by Trent Haaga (American Nightmare, Citizen Toxie IV).

In a nation dominated by mass media manipulation, rampant consumerism and a brainwashing government, a zombie epidemic known as the Lazarus Virus is bringing the recently deceased back to life. As the dead feed upon the living, Channel 5 TV News feeds its audience a false picture of the danger, death and doom that is close at hand. The station’s lead anchorwoman learns of a government-mandated broadcast blackout of all walking dead news and live footage, so she enlists the help of her trusted cameraman and a demented military guard to spread the word any way they can. With the truth on their side and flesh-hungry monsters gathering in numbers and strength, the trio must warn unsuspecting citizens about the nightmare at their doorsteps…before it’s too late. News at 11…

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Idea Done Well May 24, 2005
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this movie, as soon as it started I realized I would. While watching Romero's trilogy I always love the news scenes, as things start to fall apart and the media struggles to remain calm - and I wished it were expanded upon. Well, here it is, and it was very entertaining.

Dripping in sarcasm, at first the film seemed a little too cheesy and the performances too over-the-top for me, but as it went on my opinion changed. I can really see my friends and I behaving in that bizarre a manner in that situation. In fact, the exaggerated manner of the film worked to keep me guessing as to whether this was a serious zombie flick or a parody. I think the former, but that's my opinion.

Shades of "Stacy" were visible in Feeding the Masses, maybe. It could be an homage, some inspiration or just coincidence, but either way it was the flavor of funny I don't mind in my horror flicks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feeding the Masses: Zombie Film as Social Satire November 1, 2005
Format:DVD
Do you want to be scared? I mean REALLY scared?

Then get a different movie. This one is NOT scary.

On the other hand, if you're like me and you just love zombies and you have to see every freakin' flick that features the walking dead, this one ain't bad!

Set in Providence, Rhode Island, the film follows Torch, a camera man for a tv news show there.

The Zombie Holocaust is upon us, but the "man" doesn't want to talk about it! And so, the tv station, under the watchful eye of military observers, happily reports that things are getting better. Keep shopping! is the creed.

There's a great scene in which the weather guy reports there's increased zombie activity in Zone 2, so folks there can "stay home tomorrow and enjoy this beautiful weather!"

The acting is mixed. The quality of the video is medium. The plotline is pretty good, though. It's worth the time and money. Speaking of time, the box says the film is 2.5 hours. It's actually more like 90 minutes max.

If you like your horror with a strong dash of political satire (and if you're a Romero fan, you gotta), check out FEEDING THE MASSES.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for the idea ! August 18, 2005
Format:DVD
I am a big fan of low-budget zombie/horror films & i don't think "FEEDING THE MASSES" is a total flop,but i do think that these guys could have tried alot harder to make this great idea come to life! Between the sad sad make-up & efx & the ultra crappy acting you would think that there would have been enough gore to save it,but no! The only thing good about this movie is the concept/idea & even that isn't worth the money i spent on it! If you can find it for under $10 dollars its worthy to be in your low-budget zombie collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars When zombie files and radio dials conspire to dance again December 12, 2005
Format:DVD
I can not believe the reviews I am reading for `Feeding the Masses'. Apparently, people feel that as long as they bill themselves as fans of the `Zombie' genre, they can blast low budget films out of the water. Keep in mind the production cost of the original Dawn of the Dead was $1.5M in 1977. The cost of music for the original Night of the Living Dead was $1500, and that was 1966 dollars. While I was not able to find the production cost of `Feeding the Masses', I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest it was a whole lot closer to $1500.

The point is the crew had an idea, and a very good one. If you can look past the poorly done gore and lackluster (but far from terrible) acting, `Feeding the Masses' makes for not only a very entertaining 90 minutes, but a scathing piece of social commentary. News features about the best way to cube a steak while zombies work toward ending the world punctuate what should go down as a noteworthy film.

This movie was not designed to be a horror movie per se. Not intended to scare. It was not intended to appeal to the masses. It will not make its viewer question how they made a certain special effect look so good. What it will do is make its viewer think a bit more closely about the six-o'clock news and reports that the war is being won and the economy is recovering.

I can not recommend this movie highly enough. Plenty of laughs, decent gore, a creative take on the zombie genre make it one to watch time and time again. And to the reviewers who insist on steering traffic away from movies like `Feeding the Masses', please go buy the widescreen edition of `The Fantastic Four' and review it. If everybody listened to your ideas, there would be no more zombies. Just Paris Hilton horror.

2.0 out of 5 stars Take my word as a fan of Zombie cinema August 17, 2005
Format:DVD
Basically we all have our own opinions on movies as the one above states this as a 4 star movie. Now me personally, I dont think this is a 4 star, 5 star or even 3 star. The reason for the 2 stars is for the crystal clear picture and the good quality equipment Im assuming they had to shoot this flick.

Let me get into detail as a big fan of the Zombie genre, this is by far one of the worst Zombie films I have seen. I was about to buy it but thank God I rented it first from BlockBuster.

Now I will be as specific as I can about this movie. Especially for all you Zombie fans.

1- There is very little Zombie action, Zombies pop up when convienent and then are gone for 15-20 minutes then maybe they will show 2 or 3 of them and in some scenes they just show the same Zombie multiple times. Not enough Zombie action to really call this a Zombie flick, though there are Zombies so it is a Zombie flick.

2-The make up is bad most casses just regular people with some red dangley looking meat hanging from there face or some blue make-up with some red liquid to look like blood, its just very fake and poor looking. They also walk with there are arms extended straight out whcih is kind of cheesy, to me atleast, also what I didnt like is that there are these news reporters standing around reporting about Zombies while they just seem to walk around the people doing absolutley nothing. especially when stated in the movie they only attack theliving, if so why were they not attacking at this part.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film, but slow and talky
Not even close to George Romero's films, I think that the director tried, but it's too slow to be a great film. Feeding the Masses is okay for a b-movie, but still not the best.
