When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants. As the shoot wears on, members of the crew exhibit increasingly strange behavior leaving those still sane realizing they need to get out of this place before they too succumb to the building's infectious hold, the only problem, the old hospital is not ready to let them go.
Starring: Evalena Marie, Michael Reed, Jonathan Thompson, and Michael Scott Allen
Directed and written by: Michael Rasmussen and Shawn Rasmussen
An abandoned psychiatric hospital usually is a good setting for a horror movie, and it certainly works in "Dark Feed." Maybe because they stick to the title and make it very "dark,” maybe even too dark in some scenes. There are lots of rooms in the hospital, where light is hard to come by. It maintains a creepy feeling throughout the movie, which works perfectly with the craziness that ensues.
The craziness is great because no one is safe. One by one the characters either go nuts, or become a victim of someone who has already gone nuts. There are some good deaths, include one of the actors who wanted to become an actress! If only they would have shown a little more blood to match the craziness.
The darkness and craziness save what is a really slow start to the movie. There is a long process of introducing a lot of different characters, and setting up their movie shoot. If "Dark Feed" would have gotten to the point a little quicker, and used some more blood I might have given it more than 2 pools of blood!
