‘You. Are. Who. You. Eat.’
Feed Me is a 2022 British dark comedic horror film about a depressed man who encounters a deranged man who wants to slowly eat him alive.
The Black Hat Magic Productions-Dark Fable Media co-production also stars Christopher Mulvin, Hannah Al Rashid, Samantha Loxley, Dani Filth, Clare Almond plus Anto Sharp, Craig Hinde, James Monteith, Nadia Lamin, Rachel Oakes, Nick Tuck, Simba Masaku, Sandra Howard-Williams and Suzi Toms.
Jed (Christopher Mulvin) finds his life shattered when his wife (Samantha Loxley), suddenly dies and he feels directly responsible. Spiralling into an abyss of depression, he finds himself in a bar with deranged Lionel Flack (Neal Ward) who convinces him he can redeem himself through the glorious act of allowing himself to be slowly eaten to death!
Feed Me will receive its world premiere at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles. In the US, XYZ Films will release Feed Me this Halloween on Digital and On-Demand (VOD) on October 27, 2022.
XYZ Films’ EVP of US distribution, James Emanuel Shapiro remarked: “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!”
Filmmakers Adam Leader and Richard Oakes said: “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.
We’re so excited to unleash Feed Me upon the world and showcase a style of cinema that we can’t wait to carry on producing for many years to come!”
“In terms of performances, you are unlikely to see one as unhinged as Neal Ward’s Lionel in some time, with his questionable haircut, OTT southern accent and obsession with his mother, this is quite the turn. While Feed Me can be chalked up to dark comedy in some parts it has a real vicious streak that could catch you off guard.” Bloody Flicks
“Its great to see that Feed Me is gathering all the very well-deserved recognition that is so definitely deserves and I’m sure that more awards and praise will soon be added to the Feed Me collection of great things. Congratulations to all the cast, and crew of the film who helped make this one of the most bonkers, fun, creepy, rollercoaster film rides that I’ve seen for a while.” From Page 2 Screen
“What’s really awesome when it comes to Adam Leader and Richard Oakes movies is the fact that they go all in. When they have to choose between holding back or moving forward into the really uncomfortable moments, they throw themselves (and the story) deep into the uncomfortable. However, since comedy and dark humor is also key part of their storytelling, it just works.” 4 out of 5, Heaven of Horror
“As part of a string of horror movies released during the Halloween season, it has little, if anything, to make it stand out amongst them. It can be a fun watch if one is interested in a ‘so bad that it’s good’ film with some extremely gross scenes of gore and muck, as well as some laughable acting that works because of how bad it unintentionally is.” High on Films
“Leader and Oakes have crafted a shocking tale rich with dark humor that also provides some touching moments. Their direction is solid, and Feed Me will have viewers covering their mouths when they are not wide open with laughter. I suspect that many viewers will be covering their eyes at times, as well.” Horror Fuel
“Of course, without Adam Leader and Richard Oakes, this film would never have been created. Their script and direction have created an engaging piece that is not for the faint of heart. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. It had me hooked from start to finish, with plenty of winces and laughter in between!” 5 stars out of 5, Horror Screams Video Vault
“Feed Me is a huge step up in many ways from the team’s last effort. And that is in no way a slight on Hosts but I feel like Feed Me does everything right and knowingly plays to the audience that would gravitate towards it. There are moments of dark and sick horror, moments of intense reflection and realisation, moments of deep sincerity and of course laugh-out-loud moments that if you do laugh means you’re a sick bastard, but don’t worry, you will not be the only one!” Nerdly
“Feed Me is infinitely unpredictable and isn’t that what we want in a year where horror has been on everyone’s lips? This film is deranged. Writer-director Adam Leader and Richard Oakes leave the audience simultaneously gagging and begging for more. ” Reel News Daily
