Director Joe Maggio Serves Up Gore & Giggles in ‘Bitter Feast’


Dark Sky has cooked up a new trailer for writer/director Joe Maggio’s revenge-is-a-dish-best-served-sauteed thriller Bitter Feast, available on DVD on Jan. 4. The film follows a celebrity chef taken to the boiling point (somebody stop me) after losing his job over a particularly nasty review from some asshole food blogger.

The trailer is served. Bon appetit:

That should make you think twice about complaining over your wife’s turkey this holiday season.

Anyway, the official synopsis reads:

Notorious and influential food blogger J.T. Franks (Joshua Leonard) writes a particularly vicious review that doesn’t sit well at all with its subject, Peter Grey (James LeGros), a chef whose career is already on a down slide and may not survive this latest blow.

So the temperamental, egotistical chef concocts an elaborate and deadly revenge scheme. Grey kidnaps Franks and chains him in a remote cabin in the woods, where he forces him to prepare deceptively simple dishes – from eggs over easy to medium-rare steak – then tortures him sadistically for anything less than perfection.

A tense thrill-ride prepared with wicked wit and culinary flare, BITTER FEAST is an exploration of the creative impulse gone tragically and ferociously awry.

Bitter Feast is produced by Glass Eye Pix and costars Amy Seimetz, producer Larry Fessenden (House of the Devil), and “Iron Chef” Mario Batali. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival to a healthy helping of positive reviews.
