I am a big fan of the first “Feast”, a horror gem born out of the stillborn TV show that was Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Project: Greenlight. Pretty much every movie critic who gets paid to critique movies hated it, but ask anyone else, and they thought it was a pretty entertaining little flick, with some great comedy and genre-blasting twists and turns. So when I heard they were planning not one, but two sequels (to be shot back-to-back, as is the trend nowadays), I was happy as a little clam. Now, Fangoria has your first look at the “Feast 2” via a trip to the set. So where’s my invitation, “Feast” guys?
Written by original FEAST scripters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton and produced by Mike Leahy of Neo Art & Logic, the sequel features FX by returning creature creator Gary Tunnicliffe and Glenn Hetrick of Optic Nerve, with production design by Ermanno (PULSE) Di Febo-Orsini. Gulager is also serving as director of photography, with assist by Alex Lehmann on second camera.
FEAST 2 picks up directly following the final moments of the original, with the surprisingly alive Bartender (Clu Gulager) being rescued by Biker Queen (Diane Goldner), who’s none too pleased that her twin sister Harley Mama was made into an IED in the first film. Harassed by the oversexed and impressively endowed monsters, the pair take refuge in a nearby town, and thus become part of the ragtag ensemble at the center of the story.
“Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds” and “Feast 3: The Happy Finish” are easily the best horror movie titles I’ve heard in ages. The two sequels are going straight to DVD, which is where they really belong. Mainstream audiences just can’t appreciate the franchise’s great combination of relentless gore, laughs, and genre-defying ways.
