XYZ has just announced the World Premier of the comedy-laced cannibal horror Feed Me at LA’s Beyond Fest followed by its Digital release just in time for Halloween.
Neal Ward, Christopher Mulvin, Hannah Al Rashid, and Samantha Loxley star in the film produced by Ed Polgardy (The Wretched) along with Adam Leader, Richard Oakes, and Neal Ward.
Feed Me follows Mulvin’s character Jed, whose life is shattered when his wife, played by Loxley, suddenly dies and Jed feels directly responsible. Spiraling into an abyss of depression, he finds himself in a bar with a deranged cannibal, Lionel Flack (Ward, in a truly star-making performance) who convinces him he can redeem himself through the glorious act of allowing himself to be slowly eaten to death.
Shapiro remarks “I was truly blown away by FEED ME. I’ve watched this movie ten times since I first saw it because it’s such a blast. This is a horror film for the real sickos out there, myself included. I haven’t had this much fun watching a horror movie since DRAG ME TO HELL. This is not a brooding horror drama about grief and the human existence. FEED ME is a rollercoaster ride full of thrills, laughs and screams and it brings buckets and buckets of gore and grime to the table. I had to release this for Halloween. Dinner is served!”
FEED ME is very much a film unto its own. As a product of our combined personalities as a filmmaker duo, it’s an example of what we feel we do best – layering bizarre, batshit-crazy horror with a generous dusting of comedy on a dramatic story of grief, heartache and self-loathing.”
From the moment of its inception, we wanted to tell the story without holding back due to the worry of what others might think. Its running themes and distinguished nature somewhat personally echo aspects of our own style as a filmmaking duo.
XYZ Films’ EVP of US distribution, James Emanuel Shapiro, negotiated the deal directly with the film’s four producers.
Let the new teaser trailer whet your appetite for the horrors you will witness in Feed Me, coming to Digital and VOD on October 27th.
