Marcel Walz’s 'Blood Feast' Remake Hits U.S. Theaters in April

On April 28th, Blood Feast will be hitting theatres in the U.S. for a short run. This remake of the Herschell Gordon Lewis horror classic just had a very pleasing festival run, and there’s some real buzz going around about the film. Chris Cofell says it “delivers a full serving of gore,” and Benedict Seal says it “has the makings of a cult classic.

Synopsis:
Fuad Ramses (Rusler) and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long, lonely nights he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess Ishtar (Katz). He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms.

After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. He starts to prepare a ritual feast to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with blood, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness until he is no more than the goddess’ puppet; and she thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter too…

The film stars Robert Rusler, Sophie Monk and Caroline Williams. Blood Feast was directed by Marcel Walz and written by Philip Lilienschwarz.
