Synopsis: Fuad Ramses (Rusler) and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long, lonely nights he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess Ishtar (Katz). He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms.

After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. He starts to prepare a ritual feast to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with blood, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness until he is no more than the goddess’ puppet; and she thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter too…

I remember seeing the original Blood Feast many years ago and the entire time thinking “What the hell am I watching”. It will be interesting to see what director Marcel Walz and writer Philip Lilienschwarz can bring to the remake of Herschel Gordon Lewis’ 1963 classic gore-fest. Starring Robert Rusler, Caroline Williams, Sophia Monk and Sadie Katz, Blood Feast is set for a 2016 release. Check out the official Facebook page for more info. Until then feel free to enjoy the trailer↓.





  1. And here I was putting the original on a list of films I didn’t want to see remade. Not sure if this will be as bizarre or er… “amusing” as Lewis’ flick… but it might work. Maybe. That’s a damn hard act to follow, crude effects though they may be by today’s standards.
