Feast 3 movie review:

Survivors of a monster invasion are saved by a mysterious stranger who seems to have the ability to scare the creatures. This stranger will lead the group into the heart of the beast’s cave hoping to solve this problem for good.

No doubt that this third movie is made by the same team that created the first two movies. Director John Gulager and writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are delivering once again a movie loaded with humor, gore and action. Is it as good as the original movie from the franchise? Not really!

The movie starts abruptly with an intense sequence filled with corpses and blood flying all around. Monsters are mean and we have the opportunity to see them entirely in broad daylight. All characters are presented with funny comments (just like in the previous films) and we get the chance to meet the topless girls and weird characters. Of course, some of them are barely onscreen for more than two seconds!

However, once the first ten minutes are done, the story suddenly becomes long and boring. Twists and surprises are usually consisting of the apparition of new characters. Once again, some of them will make it longer than others.

Still, the plot is very simple, predictable and not very exciting. Fortunately, the movie is filled with humor and some funny sequences. For instance, one guy is spending the entire movie with a pipe stuck in the skull while another one is brutally murdered from behind by the monster’s… well, you’ll see what I mean…

Besides the nudity, be warned that many sequences are filled with humor that may not fit for everyone. You can call it funny or bad taste, but one thing is sure, these scenes are sometimes very graphic.

Special effects are often well-made although you might feel tired at one point from seeing human parts flying all around. Gore lovers will be pleased, but the addition of many gory scenes doesn’t add anything relevant to the script.

Director John Gulager is usually in control, but a few scenes (like the one with the flashing lights mixed with still images) are simply annoying. It’s nice to try new things or add new effects, but it’s not necessary to use these effects endlessly!

Having a good story is a must, but if you are looking for gore only (and even more gore!!!), then you might enjoy this third movie from the “Feast” franchise.
