Feed The Gods: Special Edition [Blu-ray]
(Shawn Roberts, Emily Tennant, Tyler Johnston, et al / Blu-ray / NR / (2014) 2021 / Bleiberg Entertainment - MVD Visual)

Overview: Two brothers return to a small mountain town in search of their long lost parents only to discover that the place has a monstrous taste for tourists.

Blu-ray Verdict: After the death of their foster-mother two brothers go back to the town where they were born only to find the place holds a deadly secret.

Thankfully, Feed The Gods is not a found footage, hand-held camera movie and indeed is favorably comparable to The Wicker Man, borrowing elements in terms of story.

It is lovingly laced with horror and off beat humor, sure, but writer/director Braden Croft has a lot on his hands and it never quite merges the two tone elements.

Like, for example Cabin in the Woods. Nor is it wacky enough to to be as entertaining as, say, Tucker and Dale Versus Evil.

Indeed, Crofts writing works best when the middle of nowhere towns conspiracy aspects and vigils (reminiscent of Hot Fuzz) are centerstage rather than the shoehorned one liners.

There are some unnecessary moments of POV camera stuff plonked in, but aside from that Shawn Roberts, as the memorable Will, the loser geeky older brother and Erica Carroll both give solid performances.

Crofts direction is great and with the film majority traditionally shot and not another shaky cam film, he creates true atmosphere; especially during the opening and introduction scene to the rural townsfolk, but it never fully reaches its full potential (even with the well designed beast showing up in the latter half).

Halfway through I honestly thought that the film could possibly have worked better as a welcomed and all out serious horror or, on the other hand, a full on comedy?

So, in closing, the main plot reveal is predictable from the outset, given away by the films own title but thanks to the Bigfoot effects and likable lead it is most certainly worth checking out rather than writing it off, of that you have my word.
