With Herschell Gordon Lewis and David Friedman. If you're in the Tampa area and love the old gory flicks, this sounds like a fun time:
FILM RANCH INTERNATIONAL presents
The *45th Anniversary* of the Granddaddy of all slasher movies!
*"BLOOD FEAST"* to carve up the GASParilla Film Festival in Tampa Florida!
RARE SPECIAL APPEARANCE by titans of terror *HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS* and *DAVID F. FRIEDMAN*! LIVE IN PERSON!
Guest Hosted by St. Petersburg Times film critic *STEVE PERSALL*!
An *URGENT* message from FILM RANCH INTERNATIONAL:
Before JASON...before FREDDY...before MICHAEL MYERS...there was one movie maniac to rule them all: *FUAD RAMSES*, splatterstar of the notorious 1963 hit *“BLOOD FEAST”* - the first film ever to showcase explicit gore! Cringe in gut-crunching horror as Fuad, an insanely obsessive Egyptian caterer, stalks sexy sirens for a sacrificial blood offering to blasphemous goddess Ishtar! Presented in crimson-soaked 35mm!
Special Guests of this once-in-a-lifetime event include *“BLOOD FEAST”* director *HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS* (the "Godfather of Gore") and producer *DAVID F. FRIEDMAN* ("The Mighty Monarch of Exploitation"). Enjoy a casual outdoor reception (weather-permitting) with these living legends, followed by an insightful Q & A session, hosted by popular film critic *STEVE PERSALL* of the St. Petersburg Times - if he survives! This is one event that NO horror fan should miss!

Not everyone is thrilled to death about the triumphant screening. "I remember when ‘*BLOOD FEAST’* terrorized movie screens back in the Lord's year of '63", says Rev. Milford Crabtree. "This film paralyzed the city. We've never been the same since! Tongue-ripping, limb-severing, machete-hacking - I tell you “*BLOOD FEAST*” left our youth population in mental ruin and turned them into a doom generation of hippie psychos!" he blasts.
Rev. Crabtree is leading an effort to convince movie fans not to indulge in the gory and sexy debauchery of *“BLOOD FEAST”*. "It's downright disgusting - voluptuous blondes and busty brunettes attacked by a machete-wielding madman! I mean, what kind of a diseased mind comes up with this ultra-violent freak-flick?"
In parting, Rev. Crabtree issued a final statement: "BY GOLLY, I ORDER EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU NOT TO SEE *‘BLOOD FEAST’*...OR ELSE!"
Good citizens of Tampa Bay and across America, show your support of *“BLOOD FEAST”* and help put Rev. Crabtree in his place. If you have the GUTS. A nurse will be on duty at the box office…not as an advertising gimmick, but because she may very well be needed to resuscitate collapsed ticket holders. Due to the extreme horror of this picture, FILM RANCH INTERNATIONAL sincerely warns people who are the least bit squeamish or have a heart condition to not attempt to see this picture. See this movie if you dare, but be prepared for unimaginable horror. For package ticket-holders, *“BLOOD FEAST”* will be followed by another made-in-Florida grisly shocker: *“100 TEARS”*.
Don't miss it!
