It's been quite a while since we've heard anything about director Marcel Walz's remake of the 1963 H.G. Lewis cult classic BLOOD FEAST. Things have been pretty quiet on the BLOOD FEAST front ever since the remake's trailer was released online last June. The silence has now been broken, as Walz shared some very good news with the folks over at Shock Till You Drop: a U.S. distribution deal has been secured and Medallion Releasing will be putting BLOOD FEAST out in theatres in the United States on April 28th. The original film is known for being the first "splatter movie". The synopsis for Walz's take on the material goes like this:
Fuad Ramses 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. 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’s puppet, who also thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter...
The remake stars Robert Rusler, Caroline Williams, Sophie Monk, and Sadie Katz. I'm glad to hear some release news on this one, and am especially glad that the movie is coming out so soon. I'm looking forward to seeing what this modern BLOOD FEAST is like.
