Dark Feed (2013)

The list of interesting horror flicks seems to continually dwindle. What makes it worse is the fact that films that often look like they have potential are nothing more than typical fare. One flick that seemed interesting on the surface was the 2013 horror flick Dark Feed. The big question is, what category did this fall into.

Plot/ When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants.

When I saw that this was written by the writers of The Ward, I was excited. Unfortunately, this is no where near The Ward. Yes, there is a lot of potential with this one and some interesting parts with the scenery, lighting and scripting. The problem was everything stopped right there. The storyline as a whole is tired and played out, the acting was all over the place and there was really no payoff as an ending. In the end, this movie fell short of what it could have been and became just another low budget horror flick in the landscape of movies that fell flat.
