From executive producers Wes Craven, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Chris Moore comes the “incredible horror extravaganza” Feast (Harry Knowles, Ain’t It Cool News), whose production was chronicled on the third season of Bravo’s hit reality series Project Greenlight. When a motley crew of strangers find themselves trapped in an isolated tavern, they must band together in a battle for survival against a family of flesh-hungry creatures. Terrifying and full of surprises, Feast turns the screen blood red as the group is devoured one-by-one.
I had a chance to catch a screening of “Feast” at the Chicago Film Festival. I hadn’t caught the latest installment of Project Greenlight and hadn’t even heard of the movie until a week ago, so I came in without any expectations.
At the least, it’s got cult classic written all over it: –campy, smart writing –quirky characters that are developed enough to give them dimension without plummeting the depths of their personalities (it is a horror flick) –a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously –outrageously funny (more than you can say of other cult classics that have somehow survived)…I haven’t laughed out loud that much since Meet the Parents (the original!) –totally scared the crap out of me numerous times –a plot that defies predictability, but doesn’t collapse as a result of it
And for all those reasons, there’s got to be a good chance it’s at least going to be a sleeper hit…one that certainly appeals to the horror flick crowd, but is smart enough to draw others (like myself) that are just looking for a great, well-written, well-produced movie. Add the project greenlight junkies to that eclectic mix of audience draw…and, tell me again, why are the studios having trouble releasing it?
