"Blood Feast" was the first film by 60's self-proclaimed "Godfather of Gore" Hershell Gordon Lewis. Mal Arnold, (of the sweaty pores and giant painted eyebrows Arnolds) plays demented caterer Faud Ramses, who plies his customers with the promise of "an Egyptian feast" while nocturnally stalking every available co-ed to relieve them of important body parts. Lewis' sense of drama is to attack a blonde in the bathtub and hack off her leg, his sense of comedy is to attack a couple on the beach and gorily remove the girl's brain from her skull, his sense of romance is to stab a girl in the chest and remove her heart. All of this is accomplished in lurid, detailed close-up with gore and blood splattered profusely. Another intended victim, Playboy model Connie Mason, escapes injury, but her performance is so painfully awful, it's continuation is a new form of violence by the director against the audience. A climatic foot chase is the height of lunacy as the virtually lame Ramses is so slow, the police have to practically stop for cigarettes in order to prolong the pursuit. Extras include a short subject Carving Meat featuring Carol Burnett regular Harvey Korman, a commentary track by Lewis and sleaze producer David F. Friedman, and a trailer for "Blood Feast" that curiously features every scene of violence virtually intact making watching the repulsive feature not only unappetizing but unnecessary.
