    This is a superior horror film. It hits hard and fast, letting up only to inject some black humor and amp up the tension again before coming back for more. Feast is nasty, brutish, and short, just like Hobbes said all horror flicks should be.
  2. 63
    The highlight is a meta touch: A funny on-screen résumé is posted each time we meet a new character.
  3. Contains no shocks. But it works as a funny and slicker-than-expected parody of the genre.
  4. Reviewed by: Michael Esposito
    Fans of horror-comedy probably will enjoy this movie, even though chuckles outnumber scares.
  5. A sad farewell to the promising Project Greenlight concept, this Feast leaves viewers with nothing satisfying to tuck into.
  6. 38
    John Gulager's directing debut is horror at its most reductive and least resonant.
  7. 0
    Zero-star movies are a rare and terrifying breed - films that warrant recommendation only as an alternative to physical distress.

    Feast is enjoyable, but dumb horror film that will absolutely blow you away with its ultra-gory practical effects and its intense action sequences. It is a well-done production, which is obvious because the Executive Producers are Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Wes Craven and Chris Moore. It is a throw back to the 70's horror slasher films and it is funny as hell, scary and entertaining. With twists, chills and thrills that are shockingly good and entertaining. Expand

    Feast: 10 out of 10: Wow this is the way B-movie horror should be done. The fact it came out of that self important coming of age auteur factory Project Greenlight is even more of a miracle.

    First of all the movie has an undeniable cool factor about it. Henry Rollins as a second rate Tony Robbins, a Jason Mewes joke, and a truly funny self referential anyone can and will die at anytime vibe all in the first ten minutes sets the table for a cool fun ride.

    The movie involves people inside a bar and monsters outside trying to get in. Nothing more. It turns into a surprisingly action packed film for what is basically a one set Rio Bravo remake. Like Shaun of the Dead (Another better than anyone could of hoped horror comedy) the characters make the difference.

    There is plenty of cannon fodder (Introduced in an almost to long for its own good style of captions rating the various bar patrons survivability) and eye candy and best of all a surprising amount of x-rated violence. (There isn't a body fluid not featured in the movie. Finally an unrated cut that is truly unrated and not just an "R" with some deleted exposition scenes.)

    The movie wisely never explains what the monsters are or how they got there. It concentrates on the real time survival of the bar patrons. Did I mention that anyone can die at anytime? Even your best horror movie watching radar will be put to the test as you try to figure out who among the rabble are the prerequisite hero and heroine.

    Plenty of fun and action and style cover any of the rough spots. Simply a great B movie.

    Feast is a cynically funny, self-aware horror film made for horror fans. From the opening scene on it plays on horror stereotypes and cliches for the effects of humor and unpredictability in the plot - and to mixed results with both ends. Because of its approach it achieves a kind of charm that excuses most of its shortcomings. Expand

    Not a horror movie, more of a thriller. Very predictable story. acts of monster not highlighted properly, and monster not up to the mark Anyways worth watching once. Expand

    As far as recent horror flicks go, this is one of the more entertaining. It is by no means a masterpiece, but it doesn't suck either. I think Gulager's camera work was inspiring, and his direction makes this film a success despite a dogged genre. Expand

    I would have given a higher mark,to this movie but the creature's orgins were never explained. Also they are not seen very clearly. I did think the monsters making out was pretty original! Points for that. Expand
