Blood Feast Theatrical Release Date Revealed


We’ve been following the progress of Marcel Walz’s Blood Feast remake for some time now, and finally we have word on the film’s theatrical release. It will hit U.S. theaters on April 28th via Medallion Releasing.

Along with Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 alum Caroline Williams, Walz’s remake of the 1963 classic from Herschell Gordon Lewis stars Robert Rusler, Sophie Monk, and Sadie Katz. Ryan Nicholson heads up the makeup department for Blood Feast (reviews here and here), which obviously got quite a workout.

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…
