BLOOD FEAST:Dorothy Fremont is looking to throw a party unlike any other, and she gets just that when she hires the decidedly sinister Fuad Ramses to cater the event. Promising to provide her guests with an authentic Egyptian feast, Ramses promptly sets about acquiring the necessary ingredients--the body parts of nubile young women!
SCUM OF THE EARTH:The naïve young Kim Sherwood gets more than she bargained for when she agrees to pose for a shady photographer, and finds herself embroiled in a sinister gang ring who illegally distribute photographs of nude and abused young girls.
- Scum of the Earth was shot in six days, just two weeks after filming on Blood Feast had ended and was filmed in most of the same Miami and Miami Beach locations Blood Feast..
- Producer David Friedman came up with some publicity stunts for Blood Feast, such as giving theater-goers 'vomit bags' and intentionally taking out an injunction against the film in Sarasota, Florida, in order to gain publicity.
- Blood Feast is considered the first splatter film!
- Blood Feast was considered highly successful, grossing $4 million against its minuscule $24,500 budget.
- Blood Feast is one of the ten Best Splatter Movies of All Time, Ranked by Rotten Tomatoes
Lewis' initial run of splatter movies hold up as being incredibly watchable and have influenced everything in horror from the grindhouse stuff of the 70s, to the slasher boom of the 80s, to the postmodern comedies of the 90s, to the torture porn movement of the 00s and beyond (Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez both owe a lot to his template).
