She Feast
DIRECTED BY NATE LACHANCE

Warning: She Feast is not for the faint of stomach. From the moment a (hot) woman's stiletto heel goes through a mechanic's ear to the graphic cannibalism that ensues later on, this splatterfest, shot originally for the Rhode Island-based three-day Killer Film Challenge, is gleefully gory. Even some members of the cast and crew got a little queasy during the 21-hour-straight shooting process. "The toughest scene, I think, was when the girls feasted on [unfortunate actor] Erik Moody," recalls producer John Seymore, who also serves as studio executive at the Maine Film Studios on Presumpscot Street, where the bulk of the movie was shot. "It was a little disturbing watching the entire footage. It got to be too much for the some of the girls, but some of the others really got into it." Like other film fest winners, She Feast will be extended into a feature-length movie this spring, sure to be replete with more explosions, more boobs, and more blood and guts. Here's hoping they don't cut the line that got the most laughs at our Port City Music Hall screening, out of Bill McLean's mouth — "Daddy's here; hit the floor, bitches!" Something tells us that gem is here to stay: "We have guys from the set using it as a ringtone," Seymore tells the Phoenix.
