''Feast'' is a horror trilogy that is a result of the first film being a part of the third season of the ProjectGreenlight contest. The winning team was composed of writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton and director John Gulager. It was executive produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Moore (through their Live Planet production company), Wes Craven and the Maloof family. John Gulager would go on and take control over the film series.

The series is notable for setting itself up and marketing itself as a parodic comedy, then [[IndecisiveParody taking a turn for the]] [[NightmareFuel horrifying]].


In a remote bar, customers are advised by a newcomer to seal the place since hungry monsters will attack them in a couple of minutes. Due to the events that happen immediately after this warning, the clients organize a strategy to defend the place under siege of deadly monsters.

Throughout the film, almost none of the characters refer to each other by their actual names. They are each identified to the audience by a nickname when he or she first speaks or otherwise becomes the focus of attention. This is accomplished by [[BossSubtitles momentarily freezing the current frame to display the nickname as well as other helpful information]], such as their chance of survival.

''Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds ''

The film is set in a nearby town immediately after the events of the first film. The monsters have made it into a small neighboring town in the middle of nowhere and the locals have to band with the survivors of the bar slaughter to figure out how to survive.

''Feast III: The Happy Finish''

Picking up moments after the end of ''Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds'', Honey Pie is killed by a creature and the other survivors are saved by the mysterious prophet, Short Bus Gus, who seemingly has the ability to control the monsters. He leads them into the sewers as they travel to the big city. Along the way they get help from karate expert Jean-Claude Seagal and learn that the monsters originate from a place called the Hive. Armed with this knowledge, they decide to fight back and destroy the monsters once and for all
!!This series contains examples of:
* ActionGirl: Heroine and Tuffy (a.k.a. "Heroine 2") in the first movie, Biker Queen and her gang in later installments.
* AnArmAndALeg: Harley Mom loses a leg early on and bleeds out from it. [[spoiler: But she's NotQuiteDead and wakes up just as Bozo and Bossman are getting ready to use her body as a bomb.]]
** Jean-Claude Seagal in ''Feast III'' loses an arm to the creatures, then Bartender tried some WorstAid inspired by ''Film/RamboIII'' for a wound on his remaining arm and only succeeds in blowing it off.
--> '''JCS:''' I look like a fucking foosball player!
* AntiHero: Bozo in the first film, see NominalHero below.
* AnyoneCanDie: The series blatantly made it obvious after killing off [[spoiler:Hero]] ''immediately'' after he's introduced. And shortly afterwards, [[spoiler:Cody]], a kid who was supposed to have a long life expectancy, is abruptly snatched from his mother's arms and eaten alive. Basically, the characters you'd expect to live to the end of each movie dies, and the characters you'd expect ''to die'' also die.
* AsHimself: Jason Mewes in the first movie. His special role in the film [[DeadStarWalking doesn't stop him from having his face ripped off.]]
* BadassBiker: Biker Queen, and pretty much her whole gang.
** Subverted with [[spoiler: Harley Mom]], who lived only long enough to lose a limb and get orally raped.
* BadassGrandpa: Bartender. Probably because he's played by the director's dad.
* BlackComedyRape: [[spoiler: In all three films a woman, cat, and man get raped by the monsters in that order.]]
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Slasher lampshades this in the third movie.
** Vet, in the first one [[spoiler: Isn't the FIRST to die, but dies minutes after Hero does]].
* BodyHorror: The monsters' internal organs are ''[[spoiler:another monster]]'' swimming a variety of nasty juices. Getting too much monster juice on (or in) a person turns them into a lunatic, a rotting corpse, or [[spoiler: another monster]], depending on the level and method of exposure.
* BringMyBrownPants: Tit Girl, Tat Girl, and Biker Queen kick the shit out of Hobo. Literally.
* DeathByLookingUp: [[spoiler: Secrets]] and [[spoiler: Lightning]] at the end of ''Feast III''.
* DeathByPragmatism: Played with, but mostly averted. Characters die pretty much no matter what they do, but ruthless pragmatism (such as sacrificing their allies, leaving others for dead, and ''[[RefugeInAudacity using live babies as bait]]'') helps them live a lot longer.
* DecoyProtagonist: The films are notorious for this. As a general rule of thumb, any character that has the makings of ANY kind of protagonist can and will be unceremoniously killed off.
** In ''Feast'', [[spoiler: Eric Dane, easily the biggest name on the bill, shows up as "Hero", and is practically signposted as the protagonist. Less than a minute after his introduction, he's killed off. Heroine takes his place, and manages to stick around just long enough to give us a glimmer of hope that she will survive the movie, and then dies herself. It's then averted when Tuffy becomes Heroine 2 and AssholeVictim RedHerring Bozo become TheLancer for her which make him both the actual male protagonist and the film's {{Deuteragonist}}, and we spend the whole rest of the movie waiting for their gruesome deaths. It never happens.]]
** In ''Feast III'', [[spoiler: Jenny Wade (Honey Pie) is featured front and center on the poster and given first billing. She's survived the previous two films on dumb luck, and we're clearly meant to believe that in this movie, she'll finally earn her wings. She is killed ten seconds after the credits.]]
* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler: Honey Pie]] in the first film.
** Greg in the second film, who sacrifices a ''baby'' to the monsters so he can escape. He did initially try to save it, but ''still''.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The second and third films include a character named "Tit Girl." Take a wild guess what her [[MsFanservice primary characterization]] is.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler: Beer Guy]] has an eye pulled out of its socket in the first film. Later, in ''Feast III'', [[spoiler: Tit Girl]] has both of her eyes gouged out. [[FromBadToWorse That's not even how she dies...]]
* FaceFullOfAlienWingWong: [[spoiler:Slasher.]] Almost with [[spoiler:Bozo]], but averted when [[spoiler:part of it gets [[{{Squick}} cut off by Heroine after it gets caught in a closing door.]]]] Played straight with [[spoiler: Harley Mom, shortly before she is blown up.]]
* FatalFamilyPhoto: [[spoiler: For all the times that Heroine talks about her daughter Charlie waiting for her, it's a wonder she survived as long as she did. She might as well have been two days from retirement, too.]]
* FinalGirl: Played straight, averted, deconstructed, and everything in between: [[spoiler: Heroine]], despite being signposted as this in the first film, [[spoiler: is killed off twenty minutes before the end]]. Tuffy/Heroine manages to play it straight, [[spoiler: but we never see her again past the first film]]. [[spoiler: Honey Pie]] survives the first and second film mostly by dumb luck, and the third film's poster (and billing order) clearly wants us to believe she's going to be the new FinalGirl, [[spoiler: she's killed ten seconds after the credits roll]]. Secrets of the second and third films appears to play this straight, but she's [[spoiler: crushed by a giant robot right before the credits]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the opening scenes, Beer Guy's eye is shown magnified and reflected when he holds a shot glass near his face. [[spoiler: Guess who falls prey to an EyeScream later.]]
* GagPenis: Subverted; Lightning's penis reaches down to his kneecaps. Which would be a lot more impressive if not for the size of the rest of his body.
* GainaxEnding: The third movie ends with Lightning and Secrets [[spoiler:getting crushed by a giant robot]]. Then a mariachi player shows up to sing a recap of the trilogy, which may or may not actually be concluded with ''Feast 4.''
* {{Gorn}}
* GenreSavvy: "This is the part where the black dude usually dies!"
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler: Slasher/Hybrid]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Thunder]] in ''Feast II'', [[spoiler: Jean-Claude Seagal]] in ''Feast III''.
* HardToLightFire: The Molotov cocktails from the first film, one of which is finally lit successfully by Bozo, only to go out when [[spoiler: Bartender's neck is slashed and his blood sprays everywhere,]] extinguishing it.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Boss Man]] and [[spoiler:Greg Swank]]. Inverted in the latter case, as he survives a pipe through the head but dies when it's removed.
* InfantImmortality: Subverted. Twice.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: [[spoiler: Heroine]] gets shot offscreen as an anticlimactic death for their part of the film.
** Secrets accidentally shoots Shitkicker in the face just after he teaches her how to shoot.
* JitterCam
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:Hero]] dies halfway through introducing himself.
* KillEmAll: The final(?) installment of the series goes out of its way to do just that. [[spoiler:Except Bartender.]]
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Hero]] and [[spoiler:Honey Pie]].
* NominalHero: Bozo, who seems to be your typical {{Jerkass}} who initially appeared to be created as a HateSink who should end up an AssholeVictim anytime soon and when given a simple task that involves putting his life on the line [[MilesGloriosus despite acting so tough, also shows him to be a coward]] who could be a DirtyCoward, but throughout the first movie, while still a loudmouth obnoxious jerk, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold who actually loves his wheelchair-bound brother]], he eventually becomes resourceful enough to help Tuffy, retroactively shows himself to be more of a CowardlyLion who eventually sheds off the "cowardly" part ([[spoiler:unlike bonafide DirtyCoward Honey Pie) and even manages to survive up to the end of the film.]]
* NotQuiteDead: Used twice in the first film - [[spoiler:Harley Mom]] has her legs ripped off and is presumed dead, until Bozo and Bossman discover she is alive when they try to use her body as bait. [[spoiler: They still do it]]. [[spoiler:Beer Guy]] has his eye ripped out, but gets up a few minutes later and [[spoiler: manages to survive for another good chunk of the film]].
** The last we see of [[spoiler: Bartender]] in the first movie, he's having a heart attack and had his neck slashed by one of the monsters. He reappears in the next movie's opening scene, having recovered and placed a tourniquet on the neck wound.
* RedHerring: Bozo was not subtle that he's an obnoxious {{Jerkass}}, making viewers think he is the film's HateSink and a potential AssholeVictim. [[spoiler:However, he is really the male protagonist to Tuffy's female protagonist who both managed to survive the film.]]
* RefugeInAudacity: And how! The series pretty much runs on this and CrossesTheLineTwice, swerving drunkenly between ludicrous, terrifying, horrifically offensive, and all the way back again.
* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: Part III has an example so outrageously absurd that it almost has to be a parody of this trope. A gun discharges on its own and blows off some guy's face, but the gun is a single action revolver -- '''with the hammer down'''. For those not in the know, even pulling the trigger on one in that state does nothing; a single-action revolver is impossible to fire unless the hammer is cocked back first.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: How some patrons, especially Beer Guy in the first film react to Hero's warning and the impending attack. [[spoiler: Honey Pie plays it completely straight when it looks like she's bringing the big rig to save the rest of the survivors, but turns and flees.]]
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler: Jean-Claude Seagal.]] He dies within seconds, and [[spoiler: all of the characters (except Bartender)]] end up dying anyway.
* ShoutOut: Martial artist Jean-Claude Seagal.
** Tuffy shouts "[[Film/DayOfTheDead1985 Choke on it!]]" as she's literally choking one of the creatures to death with her own fist, [[TookALevelInBadass having just smashed all of its teeth out with the butt of an empty shotgun.]]
* SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: [[spoiler: Honey Pie and Thunder in ''Feast III''.]]
* TeethFlying: In the climax, the second Heroine uses a rifle butt to knock out every last one of a monster's many, many teeth. Then tops this by shoving her arm through its now-harmless jaws, and all the way down its throat, so it chokes to death!
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Puker Girl stabs [[spoiler: Tat Girl]] over ''thirty times'', even though she was probably dead after the fifth stab. Biker Queen later avenges her death by tackling Puker Girl down, and ''pulling her intestines out of her vagina''.
--> '''Biker Queen''': [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "That's how you gut a bitch,]] ''[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch!"]]''
* TookALevelInBadass: Tuffy, whose name changes to Heroine 2.
** At the end of ''Feast III'', the remaining survivors [[spoiler: tackle Slasher/Hybrid to the ground and mutilate him using ''nothing but their teeth''.]]
* TheVirus
* ToiletHumour : Not so much in the first, a scene [[spoiler: the autopsy]] entirely dedicated to it in the second, and the third basically opens with it.
* TwoPartTrilogy
* VasquezAlwaysDies: [[spoiler:Harley Mom.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse?: Where did [[spoiler: Tuffy/Heroine 2, Bozo and Hot Wheels]] end up after the first film?
