"Earth was only an appetizer."

Feeders is a low budget direct-to-video sci-fi horror film made by Mark and John Polonia in 1996.

Reportedly produced on a budget of five hundred dollars and shot with a consumer camcorder, Feeders follows buddies Derek and Bennett as their road trip gets sidelined by an invasion of people-eating aliens. It was followed by a Christmas-themed horror-comedy sequel.

Tropes used by Feeders include:

  • Aerosol Flamethrower: Employed by Michelle.
  • Alien Abduction: Bennett; others sometime prior to the film.
  • Alien Invasion: The feeders are coming.
  • Ambiguous Clone Ending: After Bennett is abducted and cloned, a clone fight ensues. Derek attempts to resolve the thing by picking one and killing it with an axe. It's not clear until the credits that he picked incorrectly.
  • Badass Santa: In Slay Bells, Santa defeats almost all the Feeders with a ray gun.

  • Bad Boss: Mr. Hatton in the sequel. Good gravy, if you have a boss like that, quit. He flat out calls one of his employees an asshole! invoked
  • Chaste Hero: Derek.
  • Covers Always Lie: Perhaps a minor point, but the tagline on the box states that "Earth was only an appetizer" when the film is indeed set entirely on Earth.
