Deeply shocking and darkly funny, Feed slowly brings its satire of consumerism and control to the boil, before ramming it right down the throat.
a piece of laughable exploitation that is actually trying to condemn exploitation even as it exploits
Gleefully frightens and grosses out its audience every way imaginable.
As Feed muddles through its outlandishly stupid premise, the thing just gets uglier instead of more intense, and sillier instead of more exciting.
"Feed" is bizarre, sick, disgusting with an interesting premise. I personally think it could be helpful for those who need motivation for losing weight or changing their food habits.
A top notch gory thriller.
Could have done with a bit less flashbacks to childhood for both the cop and the killer. Alex O'Lachlan, doesn't do as well as I expect of him all the time, but he pulls it off sufficiently enough. Some may find the ending cheeky but I found it suitable for a film with a derailed protagonist and that characteristically quirky-absurd spin so many thrillers go for.
Off the top of my head, this is the only horror or thriller that has done the "death/serial killing over the net" concept, hell just the "multimedia, digital killer" concept, well. The pacing is steady and the gore and makeup are incredible.
Really liked and was moved by (as in I felt sympathy for them) the Meiwes/Brandes tribute characters in the opening sequence (also serves up a solid second-long shot of charred penis in a frying pan). And pan-seared dicklet segues perfectly into the final touch:
the "Most Fucked Up" highlight: There are PLENTY to choose from, but for me, it's the emotional control that the killer is proudly displaying over his victim to the cop in the climax.
Disgusting, and not in a good way.
*Spoilers ahead* I thought this movie was really good, contrary to the overal score of ten people on this site. It certainly dealt with a subject that I've never seen portrayed in a movie before, so that makes it unique. It deals with websites that people create in which men feed the fat women. It's called feeding. I liked that there was a nice little twist in that it really wasn't a feeding site only, the members were also betting on when the women would die. I thought it was a nice touch. The acting is really solid, especially from Alex O'Loughlin character (the villian). I thought he did a great job portraying the psycho guy and he made you believe he really was psycho. There were also some parts in which I found myself rooting for Alex's character. Not because I agree with what he said. It's because of the way the cop came off in several scenes with Alex. The cop just came off as weak and cowardly. Overall a very good movie that deals with a relatively unused concept in movies.
