    Blood Feast

    ★★½

    "Oh dear, I guess we'll have to eat hamburgers for dinner tonight". A line like that in a B movie such as Blood Feast, which is uttered during one of the films more serious and crucial moments, is a hysterical reminder of the surreal charm films of this nature possess, due to their inherently unhinged and twisted projection of reality through artistic vision.
