October Movie Challenge: Feast of Flesh (2007)
In my defense I want to say up front that I thought this was going to be better.
The title is fine and my research said it was a bit like Bordello of Blood only featuring Elizabeth Bathory AND Carmilla. I mean really. How can I say no?
I was so horribly wrong.
I think I am prepared to say that this was the WORST vampire movie I have seen this entire challenge. Though Mama Dracula might give it a run for it's money.
The story focuses on a "high class" brothel known as Bathory House. A couple gets a ticket to go from a poker game. Of course they are looking for a little threesome fun and instead they get eaten (and not in the way they wanted). Anyway I guess there is a prohibition against the vampires from hunting townfolk so the local vampire hunters come in and beat the vampire-hookers up a little.
Both sides fight. There is also a plot about a woman that is a local, but leaving town, getting brought into the brothel. The vampires thought she was coming to town, not leaving it. Her boyfriend wants her back...you know the drill.
I will give the movie one credit. The ending is not what I expected it to be. Bathory is killed and the townie girl becomes the new Madame. The boyfriend and all the hunters are killed.
The acting is terrible, including and especially Director, Writer and head Vampire Killer Sheridan, aka Mike Watt. What was up with that accent? He was supposed to be Dutch, but it sounded like Irish that learned from a book on tape. Anyway. It's not good.
I toyed with the idea of a vampire brothel in my games before. Mayfairs is a brothel in my games run by two vampire lovers, Miriam and Fran and founded by a Street Fae, Dirty Nellie. I now have a list of things NOT to do with it.
Tally so far: 36 Total Watched / 24 New
What do you find scary?
