Blood Feast Remake Gets a New Rating and Date for its Theatrical Release

Published

on

We’ve been talking about Marcel Walz’s remake of Blood Feast for a while now; and finally, after a few delays and a slight tweaking of the film in order to get an “R” rating, it’s ready to embark on its theatrical release. As Walz tells us, it’s both good news and bad news (but mostly good)…

“It’s really amazing what has happened in the last weeks. We of course all hoped to get a theatrical release with our movie Blood Feast, but we never expected that what’s going on now would really happen. On the one hand I felt bad that our announced date was shifted again and again, but in fact it was the best thing that could happen to Blood Feast and its fans in North America. The cooperation with Regal Entertainment Group and its more than 500 locations in the USA with over 7,300 screens and Cineplex Entertainment with more than 160 locations in Canada brings Blood Feast to all main markets and gives it a release that we would never had expected. Therefore, we need an MPAA rating to make Blood Feast available to all main markets in North America. I am more than grateful that I had the chance to direct this movie and to be part of the Blood Feast family, and I think Herschell Gordon Lewis would be very proud of us. We dedicated the movie to him, remembering him and his achievements for splatter horror movies… So finally it’s time for Blood Feast! We’ll be in cinemas on July 28th.”

Check out the updated artwork below.

“Some markets are unable to screen an unrated film,” adds Hannover House CEO Eric Parkinson. “The decision to seek the MPAA rating for Blood Feast was tailored after a similar development impacted the release of Saw a few years back. So the film has been very modestly edited to conform to the film ratings standard that should make it accessible to a larger audience.”

Distributors Hannover House and Crimson Forest Entertainment Group will promote the Blood Feast (review) release through horror-related media and websites, as well as national cable TV ads and in-theater promotions. An October 31st home video release is anticipated, with a subscription video-on-demand window available for January.

“The fan base is large and quite vocal,” Parkinson says. “We hope to channel this energy into surprising box office results and establish some positive momentum before hitting the home video and VOD markets in the fall.”

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, a special screening is planned for July 25th at Raleigh Studios.

The official remake was directed by acclaimed German director Marcel Walz and features an impressive cast – including an appearance by the 90-year-old Herschell Gordon Lewis, filmed shortly before his death late last year. Other cast members include Robert Rusler (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sadie Katz (Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort), and Sophie Monk (The Hills Run Red).

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…
