Nitehawk Nasties has a reservation waiting for you at the exclusive BLOOD DINER (a 35mm presentation).
Service is a real killer for the ladies who get into the Namtut Brothers’ wildy popular restaurant. This black comedy horror, with a distinct 1980s B-movie flavor, is a loose sequel to Herschell Gordon Lewis’s infamous cannibal “classic” Blood Feast (1967) and, if you’re a cannibal film connoisseur, you’ll note the similarities. After resurrecting their serial-killer uncle from the grave, restauranteurs Michael and George Tutman takes orders from his head, housed in a mason jar, to bring back the Ancient Lumerian goddess, Sheetar. To achieve that, they have to collect various body parts from immoral women and find a virgin for the goddess to eat. But with two mismatched detectives on the case, will the blood buffet might be a bust. Bone-appetite!
Part of the 2016 Nitehawk Nasties I EAT CANNIBALS program.
