All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Banquet of the Beasts (1997)

AKA: Kichiku Dai Enkai 


Director: Kazuyoshi Kumakiri


Premise:
While the leader of a terrorist group is in prison, his girlfriend takes command. When the group finds out the leader committed suicide they go into a self destructive greiving mode with deadly results.

My Take:
One word describes this flick for me: boring. The fact is not a lot happens and the characters aren't compelling enough to keep the viewer interested. By the time the viscera starts flying, you simply aren't interested. Maybe the scenes were far more shocking fifteen years ago when it was released or maybe critics were simply making a big deal out of nothing. You can decide.

Rating: Warning

  1. I couldn't agree more! Me and an ex girlfriend of mine were dating at the time we saw this. We ordered food and I ran and go beers because we heard how "extreme" it is. We didn't even finish it. Boring as hell and completely overrated.
