"Dark Feed" Movie Review – I Told You They Weren't Real

Runtime: 86 minutes
Rating: R
Release Date: March 18, 2013
Director: Michael Rasmussen & Shawn Rasmussen

What happens when you stick a bunch of random people in an abandoned mental institution to shoot a new horror film? If it's anything like "Dark Feed," the results won't be good.

"Dark Feed" follows a group of men and women as they work in an old institution to create a new horror movie. Naturally, there's a dark presence in the old hospital that slowly starts infecting people. It can easily and quickly move from one actor to the next, and no one seems to notice that anything odd is happening until it's too late.

The premise of "Dark Feed" is one that horror fans have seen far too many times. I'm fine with films rehashing the same topic, as long as the film introduces something new. We don't get a lot of new stuff with this film, but we do get a few moments that are at least entertaining. The quote listed at the top of this review actually comes from the film. One of the characters gets "infected" by the ghost, which leads to him shaving his head, killing the female actress, and cutting out her implants. He then literally motorboats another man with the implants as he's chained to a chair, letting him know that he told him they weren't real.

While "Dark Feed" wasn't a fantastic horror movie, I did find it entertaining at times. It has a great ending, and even if you feel tempted to turn it off, I recommend that you stop and wait for the very last scene. It's a little gruesome and well worth your time.
