Blood Feast is a remake of Herschell Gordon Lewis’s notorious 1963 splatter classic!

Fuad Ramses and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American-themed diner. Since business is not going well, Fuad also works the graveyard shift in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long nights, he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive goddess, Ishtar. As his fascination with Ishtar grows, she begins speaking to him in visions. One night, Fuad succumbs to her deadly charms and begins a new life of murder and cannibalism. He prepares a lavish feast for Ishtar dripping with the blood, organs and intestines of his victims. As the bodies pile up, Fuad slips further into madness until no one… not even his wife and daughter… is safe from the desires of the bloodthirsty goddess!

A fun and ultra-gory homage to H.G. Lewis’s original 1963 Blood Feast, this remake, directed by Marcel Walz, is presented uncut and in 4K Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) for the first time ever on home video! Stars genre favorites Robert Rusler (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Part 2) and Sophie Monk (The Hills Run Red).
