Did You Know?

The "German Cannibal" scene at the start of the film is based on the real life case of Armin Meiwes, a 42 year old computer technician from Rotenburg, Germany, who caused a worldwide scandal in 2003, when it was reported that he had killed and partially ate 43 year old Bernd Brandes, an Engineer from Berlin. While the facts of the crime were gruesome, the difficulty German prosecuters had in actually charging Mr. Meiwes with ANY crime was the truly shocking part of the tale. Because the two men had met in an and internet chatroom devoted to Gay cannibal fetishism in which Mr, Brandes had clearly expressed his desire to be killed and eaten, Mr. Meiwes was shielded from murder charges under laws that were originally enacted to protect doctors who assist terminally-ill patients commit suicide. At the time, cannibalism was not explicitly forbade in any statute, and it was unclear whether a crime had even been committed under existing German law, a situation that many both in Germany and abroad found absurd and macabre. These real-life events also inspired the song "Mein Teil" by the German Industrial band Rammstein.See more »

Interesting premise; sadly more diet coke than big mac, 28 October 2006
Author: DVD_Connoisseur from England

"Feed", to adopt a food metaphor, left me hungry. The premise of this film is excellent - it's the first movie I've been aware of that tackles the bizarre subject of feeders.

Sadly, the strong cast is let down by sloppy direction. The film just isn't very cohesive. In the right hands, this could have been a very tense affair and a memorable cult movie. As it stands, the film lacks tension and any element of the fear factor. At the end of the day, it's okay but instantly forgettable.

The film scrapes a "7" as the subject matter is interesting and the acting is very's just a shame that butter-fingered director Brett Leonard manages to drop the ball. In the right hands, this could have been a simply excellent film.
