Audience Reviews for They Must Eat
After being thrown out by his ex-girlfriend, geeky Sanford Denton has no choice but to move in with his only relative, Uncle Alistair. Soon after, Sanford finds out that Alistair has been killing random people and feeding them to monstrous ghouls that come in through the basement from out back where a desolate graveyard resides. Alistair soon dies but not before passing on the duties of feeding these monstrosities, which is a necessary since they would be much more dangerous if starved. While trying to retain his job at a warehouse ran by a seedy father and son, Sanford changes his life around as he starts killing people and feeding the ghouls. He gains confidence and even attempts to court a new love, but can he manage all of these duties without repercussions. This ultra low-budget gorefest offers just about everything you'd expect from such a film, low-budget acting, effects, and filmmaking. To my surprise though, this film is actually quite entertaining as it attempts to offer a more unique storyline than most mainstream drivel, but then again, it does rely on one kill after another (and the film DOES sport quite a body count). Overall, I get where the filmmakers are coming with this. It's a fun little film meant for those who like this breed of movie-making. Glad to see it has finally made its way onto DVD. Amateur, definitely, but not bad.
