Blood Feast

Blood Feast ★★★★★

Honestly, it’s both “so bad it’s good” and simultaneously an inventive and groundbreaking horror film. Makes it worth a watch no matter what mood you’re in. Not to mention, the bizarre mashup up of early 60s visuals juxtaposed with images of gore and bloody mayhem are truly bizarre and memorable to this day. If Andy Warhol had directed this movie it’d be in the Library of Congress. There are images (the tongue ripping scene comes to mind) which honestly stand on their own as works of art. Herschel Gordon Lewis claimed he never intended to be an artist, but certain shots in this film make me think otherwise. Either way, highly entertaining. I can pop it in any time.
