BLOOD FEAST (1963)

BLOOD FEAST 1963

Blood Feast 1969 http://www.gorenography.com


With the recent passing of Director Hershel Lewis (known as the Grandfather of Gore), I thought I'd take one of his movies out for a test drive. I have to confess to being relatively unaware of his works but upon researching it seems he was more or less responsible for the exploitational gore genre.

Curiosity piqued, I chose "Blood Feast" for my first HG Lewis experience. The movie was widely panned by the media at the time but I found it reasonably well shot and quite watchable and to be fair, on par with anything shot in the 60s -70s .... I have to say I found some of the acting and the gore a little 'hammy' by modern standards but I went into this knowing that would be the case. The soundtrack has one of those creepy horror music backings that you will have to love.

Plot wise, it follows the exploits of a shop keeper 'Ramses' who is intent on bringing the ancient Egyptian goddess 'Ishtar' back to life with a series of murders of beautiful young ladies whose body parts are harvested with the intention of holding a 'blood feast',  which he hopes will culminate in the return of said goddess.

Overall I found it quite enjoyable and I love that old 60's 70's cinematic feel which only a movie shot on film can have. As far as gore content goes, it is reportadly one of the first to show full-on gore ... but I don't think anyone who's ever seen a horror movie before would be put off by this, the gore does come across a little fake, but I guess it paved the way for many films following it.

THE GREEN INFERNO (2015)

The Green Inferno - http://www.gorenography.comI didn't know what to make of this at first as I'd heard it was going to be a remake of the legendary "Cannibal Holocaust" from 1980. The film started off with a completely different premise so after the first half an hour I'd written this off to misinformation and had mentally adjusted myself to the fact that it was infact a different movie... besides what would they have to gain by recreating one of the filthiest, goriest, most disturbing movies ever?

The story starts on campus where a bunch of freshman students get railroaded by campus shitbag,  Alejrando into going to South America to save some forests. `After some substantial complications the mission eventually succeeds and the group head out of the forest only to have the plane come crashing down not that far away in cannibal country........

A lucky few of the groups die early in the plane crash leaving the rest of the group to be systematically persued, captured and consumed by the locals

With modern video capture techniques the gore and violence is so confronting I'm actually glad this wasn't a remake of "Cannibal Holocaust" .... definition aside, the violence is not in the same league as "Cannibal Holocaust" but the impact it has puts it right up there. It would still consider this extreme gore but had it descended into the same levels of filth as "Cannibal..." I think I would have lost my lunch... especially as I wasn't feeling the best when I put the movie on

As a standalone movie it holds up very well, plot makes sense and the acting is convincing there's nothing really too wrong with this, infact its pretty good! One thing I liked was the way director Eli Roth made the natives seem rather friendly and down to earth it was really hard to hate them (even as they salted the freshly dismembered corpses of the students) they came across as very human which again like "Cannibal..." raised some interesting moral issues in my head

Definatley worth a viewing!

SATANIC (2016)

http://www.gorenography.com - satanic 2016
This is not an all time classic by any stretch of the imagination but it was a pretty cool watch over all and kept me interested right through till the end of the film. This film (like so many other films) start off with a group of four teenagers on holiday. The group consists of two couples on their way to see the Coachella festival. One of the couple (the fashionably goth pair) decide to take a small detour and check out some occult places of interest on the way, including a small bookshop where they see some potentially unsavoury goings on in the back room. After being given the "heave-ho" from the bookshop they decide to trail the supsicious occultist to a farm where a strange satanic ritual involving a beautiful young woman takes place which they interrupt and then flee when the group realises they are being watched.
One of the guys drops his phone of course and the girl involved in the ritual finds it and brings it back to them but thats just where it gets more bizzare and she involves them in a world of hardcore satanism. This is where I won't talk too much about what happens but like I said its great watch and keeps the viewer interested and has some pretty decent twists.

It's not too full on on the gore but enough to keep you interested if you're only there for a 'horror veg-out' ... which to be honest is pretty much all I wanted or expected out of the film, so in that aspect my expectations were exceeded.

I'm not sure if the director of the film is taking the piss out of satanism or trying to intrigue the viewer into finding out about the church of Satan but early references and vintage footage of 'Church of Satan' founder Anton LaVey made me think the occult references might be based some what on the classic hollywood satanism but with a nod to Anton LaVeys' organisation for those more interested in finding out what satanism is about.
