The Feast

Set against the backdrop of Wales’ lush mountainside, director Lee Haven Jones‘ Welsh language folk horror fantasy THE FEAST follows an affluent family as they gathers at their lavish home, made of glass and steel. The matriarch is having a dinner party, which includes hosting a local businessman and neighboring farmer to broker a business deal to mine the surrounding countryside. When a mysterious young woman arrives to be the family’s waitress for the evening, they find their beliefs and values challenged, as her quiet yet disturbing presence begins to unravel their lives — slowly, deliberately, and with the most terrifying of consequences.

“‘The Feast’ may test one’s patience but, for those willing to embrace these Welsh-film’s eccentricities, Jones has crafted one of the more horrifying dinner parties this side of ‘The Invitation’.” (The Film Stage)

“‘The Feast’ is a movie that really got under my skin. It’s an incredibly slow build that crescendos in one of the most brutal and effective final acts in any recent horror film.” (Nerdist)

“‘The Feast’ makes a stab at drawing out modern, very real anxieties around wealth disparity and ecological devastation without falling back on genre tropes, asking us to consider how the land itself may come to feast on the rich.” (Slant Magazine)

“The Feast is never the least bit scary, but this is a film that would rather have its audience licking their lips than hiding their eyes. That always feels like a choice and not a failure.” (IndieWire)

“There’s an elegance to “The Feast” that makes its most disgusting images more palatable.” (LA Times)
