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.

So many things wrong with this movie. Why are the men calling the murder victims girls? Some of them if not all are grown ass women. Also the age difference between Suzzanne and the cop is just weird. Theu could have done better with the gore.
Amazingly bad and the death scene was just fantastic
I just love this movie and am sad to see that it will be leaving soon! I know that the acting is over the top and the gore is laughable, but it's just great old-school gory fun, which is why I love it!
As far as horror films go, this is campy good fun. The acting is atrociously funny, but movies like this open the door for plain old fun slasher films.
