In a Nutshell. Mini reviews of movies old and new. No fuss. No spoilers. And often no sleep.

To expect D-movie splatterfest director Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat to improve upon the original film is like walking into your favorite used bookstore and expecting them to be carrying those comfy adult diapers you like so much.
The movie knows it's terrible and doesn't try to hide it but when you see a piece of dog shit on the road it's not trying it's true identity either and that doesn't make it any easier to nibble on, should you be so bold.  In all honesty, I shamefully turned the film off 20 minutes in, puttered around a bit and went back to it later in the night to find I was a little more mentally prepared for it (5 beers do that).  There were a few "so bad it's good" moments but it still stunk something fierce and I see no reason to ever visit it again, unless I have unwanted guests unexpectedly dropping by.

From your Blood Feast review, published in 2011:

NOTE: a sequel was produced in 2002. It came with the package so expect a review soon.

Heh, better late than never!

XD 5 years wasn't enough time to properly prepare for this.

I can't believe The Nutshell's been doing Halloween month for 5 years now. O_o

Doc and Neg escaped Black Doll and Tales from fuck-fuck but I still ended up with this one.
How'd that happen?

Oh well...Lacey Hundies still gave me a couple of drunken chuckles.

It's a strange reunion of sorts that I ended up doing those two back in the first season and now you're continuing Blood Feast from the same year. Plus I finally finished up that 25 horror movies list from three years back. Patching up all the little holes along the way, full circle, all that.

Pretty soon I'll be making my triumphant return to the Nut...and then promptly disappearing once again. ;P
