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.

When Dave Friedman and Herschell Gordon Lewis decided to marry the "nudie cutie" to the "roughie", they created the granddaddy of all the gore films since. Dreadful acting adn over the top gore effects but still something in its roughness works to make you just a bit quesy.
Now I don’t like these sort of people who start cooking a week ahead of time for the big dinner; nothing is fresh and everything is reheated:/ I’d rather bloodfeast than leftoverfeast
Cheesy and had absolutely terrible acting. However, I'm a sucker for cheesy horror and I had a nice time.
So bad, but soooo good. Serious kudos for being the earlist exploitation film I have ever seen!
Very dated but worth watching at least once if you are a fan of gore.
