Great news Folk Horror fans! we have the official trailer and poster for the new Welsh Folk Horror, The Feast
The Feast has been on our radar now for some time. It is definitely one of our most anticipated films of the year. Filmed in the native Welsh language, The Feast tells the tale of a rich family who is hosting a lavish dinner party. They hire the help of a young local girl to act as a waitress for the evening, not knowing that this girl has a score to settle and is planning to get her revenge.
IFC Midnight’s THE FEAST follows a young woman serving privileged guests at a dinner party in a remote house in rural Wales. The assembled guests do not realize they are about to eat their last supper.
“Scathing modern folk-horror.” –Jessica Kiang, VarietyWhat others have been saying!
“Elegantly creepy.” –David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
“A folk horror fan’s dream come true.” –J Hurtado, Screen Anarchy
Not only should folk horror fans get excited. If the reviews I have read are telling the truth then The Feast is going to be serving us up some unsettling moments. One reviewer has even compared the pace of the film to Pascal Laugier’s 2008 masterpiece, Martyrs. If that’s the case, we can expect a slow burn with an explosion of madness towards the end. I also love that this is filmed in the Welsh language, it’s not something we get to see every day.
