  • It works as a funny and slicker-than-expected parody of the genre.

  • The first two "Project Greenlight" films got only brief local runs. Feast isn't likely to do much better.

  • When monsters attack, the camera gets all jerky, creating the horror effect known as motion sickness.

  • Who knows what might have happened if he had the time and the leverage to smooth out the rough edges, but material this junky can only be salvaged for so much scrap.

  • While the reality television series that chronicled the making of this low-budget horror film last year was extremely entertaining, the piece of cinema that resulted is kind of a bore.

  • [Director John Gulager] shows a little flair for the genre, though the editing is so frenetic you really can't see what's going on (a blessing, considering how cheesy the monsters look and move).

    Very random and just plain weird, Bery poor acting and cheaply made, The only thing worth the 1 star was the humour.

    Typical survival story, ably written and directed to maintain tension amid sporadic moments of tongue-in-cheek homour.

    John Gulager's Feast is one of the most kick ass horror monster flicks to come out in quite some time. First thing you have to realize with going into this film is the minimalistic story. Although the story is almost non-existent, it more than makes up for it with gross monster carnage. This film is mindless comedic horror at its best. The film is flawed, but will definitely entertain you if you're in the mood for something ridiculous. Feast has plenty of gore satisfy gore hounds, and though it has a simplistic story, this is a very engaging film that is never dull or boring. There are lots of good bits strewn across the film to make it memorable. This is the most original horror comedy that I've seen in quite some time. This film is simply put, crazy, off the wall and memorable. If you love low-budget monster flicks with plenty of gore, this film is for you. This is a must see for horror fans, and is a refreshing horror film in the genre, while big studios want to remake classic films. I personally think it's great to see something different in the genre. The film succeeds on many levels because of its simple, yet effective story. Also what really makes this film stand out is its unique sense of humor. This is a no nonsense film that delivers exactly what you'd expect from a monster film and more. Definitely a film that is excessive in every way, this film is loads of fun from start to finish. The gore is delivered in spade and the use of comedy is smartly done, the film is a must see for horror fans tired of the same old remakes
