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.

Loved it! B movie all the way! Despite all the terrible (but great) acting, the gore was amazingly disgusting
awful acting and awful effects.
it'd be 5 skulls but i hate when movies clearly film a scene at 12PM & pretend it's night
This is a very odd film and will not be for everyone. Sure, by today's standards this movie is tame, but if you enjoy modern gore films and want some context where it all started, then this is a great film for you.
