‘Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge’ VOD Review

Stars: Natalie Scheetz, Nick Principe, Caroline Williams, Christa Campbell, Annika Strauss, Sarah Hayden, Manoush, Jared Demetri Luciano, Jeff Dylan Graham, Micaela Schäfer, Ryan Nicholson | Written and Directed by Marcel Walz

Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge follows Christine and her friends as they drive home through the desert from a bachelorette party.

Evil Feed: Review

Review: Adam Wing. Director: Kimani Ray Smith. Evil Feed is a new horror film that blends torture-porn excess with bruising Mma fight choreography. The Long Pig Restaurant, known in the underground world for its cannibalistic cuisine, has a new attraction. The Pit of Gore is where blood thirsty customers get to watch their chosen courses being slaughtered, as captured elite fighters are forced to battle to the death for their 'tendertainment'. See what they did there? Part of me suspects the filmmakers came up with the word 'tendertainment' first and the rest of the movie just kind of fell into place. Directed by Kimani Ray Smith, written by Smith, Aaron Au and Jana Mitsoula, and starring Laci J. Mailey, Terry Chen and Alyson BathEvil Feed came from the mind of Horror Film fanatic and prosthetics master Ryan Nicholson. With 'recommendations' from Jeffrey Dahmer, who claims it's his favourite place to eat,
