Slow-burning horror, radically different take on Bigfoot myth. Not for fools, certainly
The Gods must be fed, to keep the remains of the town of Tendale from being destroyed. Who or what are these Gods, who would not spare even an infant unless he possesses a "green ticket"? How are these tickets obtained? Why does a dark shadow linger on the faces of the townspeople? These are the questions that Will Oates, a somewhat psychologically unstable fan of director Werner Herzog, accompanied by his hotshot- young-lawyer brother Kris and Kris' girlfriend Brit, finds himself trying to answer as he searches for his biological parents in the remains of this town that nestles deep in the heart of the Canadian Taiga. Beautifully detailed (and quirky) characters, witty dialogue and spine-chilling atmospherics add to Croft's fictional history of Tendale. The plot is both poignant and intricate, and requires generous use of the "seek" button if you don't want to miss the finer points! For the seasoned film buffs, especially those who enjoy delving beneath the surface of the movie, "Feed the Gods" is truly a treat.
PS: I don't know what the other reviewers were thinking. They could have been expecting some blood-gore-scream extravaganza, or they might have confused a mentally unstable protagonist's irrational actions with plot holes. Either way, put your expectations from big- budget films aside while watching this. It's worth the effort.
