Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis
Herschell Gordon Lewis' shocking cult classic is considered the first gore movie. When a society woman decides to plan a soirase, she hires psychotic caterer Ramses, who decides to prepare a "blood feast" using human body parts. As Ramses gathers ingredients, the police try to stop his evil deeds before it's too late. Though wonderfully campy by today's standards, nothing so graphic as BLOOD FEAST had been seen in 1963. Screenings sold out all over the US, and once Hollywood saw that violence and gore could make a buck, horror movies were never the same again. Contains violence and gore.

The Godfather of slasher. Interesting story but terrible acting. Worth a watch but not much else
Categorically god-awful but I did finish it. I understand the pretext that it was the birth of the slasher, but jumping Jesus on a pogo stick it was lacking in every way possible. 0 skulls isn’t an option, so I gave it 1.
Honestly love everything about this: the music, the bad acting, the boring plot, and the look. A perfect terrible movie! 🤘
Stupid. Plodding. Dubious. Moronic. The perfect Egyptian Feast. Eat up.
Truly one of the most awful films I've ever seen. This could be a class in of itself of what a completely inept film looks like. A landmark for featuring heightened violence/gore beyond anything that had come before it and nothing else.
