It hits hard and fast, letting up only to inject some black humor and amp up the tension again before coming back for more.
September 25, 2006
By any objective standard, Feast isn't a good movie, but by those of its low-rent genre it's kind of fun.
September 23, 2006
What has ended up on screen is a pretty good horror flick that is marred only by obvious budgetary restraints

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.
September 23, 2006
When monsters attack, the camera gets all jerky, creating the horror effect known as motion sickness.
September 22, 2006
Repetitive and edited in a stuttering, lightning-fast style that makes it impossible to see who or what is doing what to what or whom, John Gulager's directing debut is horror at its most reductive and least resonant.
September 22, 2006
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.
September 22, 2006
Although Feast will never be mistaken for a masterpiece of the horror genre, on its own 'grindhouse cinema' terms, it mostly delivers the gory goods.
September 22, 2006
[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).
September 22, 2006
This no-budget Project Greenlight production (the third and last) is a fountain of wit as well as gore.
September 22, 2006
The movie happens to be terrific.
September 22, 2006
Gulager and screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have come up with some wittily nasty moments.
September 22, 2006
Cheap-looking, gore-drenched and so postmodern and self-consciously above it all that it's hard to care about anyone's fate, Feast is sort of a mean-spirited variation on the vastly superior Tremors.
September 22, 2006
It's not the lack of originality that sinks the film, however. It's the rank amateurishness of the story construction and performances.
September 22, 2006
Should you see the two midnight screenings before it comes out on DVD? Of course!
September 22, 2006
Fast, cheap and out-of-control - and those are its good qualities.
September 22, 2006
It's not good, not be a long shot, but it certainly isn't so awful its studio should be treating it like a disease-ridden humming bird only good for a few shots of pellet gun target practice.
September 22, 2006
Everything that's supposed to happen in this formula doesn't, even when they promise it will. Feast does all the things other movies are afraid to, even Scream.
September 22, 2006
Anyone who has ever followed the Project Greenlight television show probably will agree that... the movies all suck... Feast does not turn this around.
