Feed Me is a 2022 British darkly comedic horror film about a depressed man who encounters a deranged man who wants to slowly eat him alive.
Written, directed and co-produced by Adam Leader and Richard Oakes. Also produced by Ed Polgardy (The Wretched) and Neal Ward, who also stars.
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 next month 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!”
