Blood Feast

I know that Halloween has come and gone, but that doesn't mean that you have to stop watching horror movies.  Especially if they are old and cheesey.  The latest film to come across my desk was the classic Blood Feast.  Deemed as the first true splatter film, Blood Feast has recently gotten the Blu-ray treatment, courtesy of Arrow Video.

Blood Feast centers around the eccentric character named Fuad Ramses, who is a serial killer with a purpose.  His purpose is to collect body parts, from young women, and prepare meals with them, in an effort to bring an ancient Egyptian princess back to life.  Fuad is a caterer with a sharp knife that will stop at nothing to achieve his goal. 

This movie was entertaining from start to finish.  Bad acting, cheap effects, but a good story line.  The movie was shot in the early 60's and was revolutionary for the horror genre.  Yes the effects are a bit cheesey, but no one was doing this in the early 60's, so for the time this movie had to be pretty shocking.  All and all a good watch, and is a must buy for true horror fans.

Bottom LineA groundbreaking film from the 60's.  The first splatter movie.  It is a fun watch.  It is interesting to see how these type of films began and how they have evolved over time.

-Ragman is craving a good horror movie.
