Beyond its creepy back story, the horror in this morally confused and cinematically inert film is entirely nominal.
Zesty fun for its actors, Feast is at once a sly parody of the celebrity-chef culture spawned by all the cable cooking shows and competitions, and a creepy little chamber-piece.

A low-budget, well-paced, impressively performed and quietly engaging indie horror flick.
A tasty dish that puts both sides of the critical world under the microscope...
