Blood Feast is getting a remake?!

I can't believe this went over my head. After a day of Herschell Gordon Lewis and remembering his brilliance, I stumbled across an article about the BLOOD FEAST remake coming out this year. I'm a little biased when it comes to horror/exploitation remakes, but I was pretty intrigued with with what I saw. You got Robert Rusler from NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2, Caroline Williams from TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 and HATCHET 3, Sophie Monk from THE HILLS RUN RED, and the trailer was pretty fun right off the bat. The gore already looks fantastic, and it even seems to be staying fairly close to the material... even if the original didn't really have a great plot to begin with. I have high hopes for this, and even though the writer and director of this film worked on SEED 2, it might be a pretty fun little movie. So far I haven't seen a release date, but it is scheduled to come out this year. Check it out for yourself. You think Herschell would enjoy this? Let me know!

Fuad Ramses and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long, lonely nights he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess ISHTAR. He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms.

After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. He starts to prepare a ritual FEAST to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with BLOOD, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness, until he is no more than the goddess’s puppet; and she thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter too…
