Movie Info

Crude exploitation filmmaker, Herschell Gordon Lewis strayed not a hair from his usual style (or lack of) with this gruesome feature. Attempting to evoke the spirit of an ancient Egyptian love goddess, a wacko freak-boy hacks up tender young girls to synthesize their various anatomical parts. Lewis served as director, cinematographer and composer for this David F. Friedman (Color Me Blood Red, Scum of the Earth) production. Friedman himself appears in the picture (uncredited) as a drunk.

Critic Reviews for Blood Feast

All Critics (12)

  • while it might be tempting to dismiss Herschell Gordon Lewis' low-budget, utterly tawdry smorgasbord of sensationalism as dumb-assed trash, it is too self-aware to merit such dismissal. Hell, it even ends in a literal trash yard...

  • One of the masterpieces of truly feckless cinema, an epic fail of such grandeur that Ed Wood himself would be hard-pressed to do better. Worse. You know what I mean.

  • Claims to be the first splatter film.

  • Proto-splatter from the Godfather of Gore.

  • Unfortunately, while it certainly broke new ground in terms of explicit gore, it isn't a very good film.

  • It features some of the worst performances ever to besmeer the silver screen. These, coupled with a ridiculous plot, ludicrous special effects and several bizarre deaths make the film pass beyond the realms of 'so bad it's good' into downright hilarity.

    The tagline is "nothing so appalling in the annals of horror history". Now I don't know about all of that, but for its age, it is pretty gory. Although the gore is a bit laughable, not to mention the dialogue, the acting...well pretty much everything...this is a fun watch.

    Probably one of the most unintentionally interesting horror movies ever made. It's so campy and terrible that you can't help but laugh and have a good time. The villain's ensemble and crazy fake hair is truly the shining aspect. The terrible effects and amateur-at-best cinematography also play a key part in the movie's charm. Don't expect a good movie and you will be in heaven.
