A Gillerman-Whiteaker-Gillerman Film, Night Feeder was shot during the late ’80’s Bay Area punk scene and is only now being nationally released.
Fear chokes the free-wheeling underbelly of San Francisco’s punk scene as a killer stalks the night to feed an unspeakable appetite. Community suspicion focuses on Disease, a band that is tainted by groupie deaths allegedly induced by the drug DZS, and on “The Creeper”, a misshapen outcast from the bowels of the city.
A writer probes the gruesome murders and the story hits close to home, as the web of death devours neighbors, friends, and lovers. Shot-on-video,the film is a darkwave horror blast from the leather-clad armpits of the Bay Area. This gore-scarred, creature-fueled whodunnit culminates in one of the most rewarding slasher reveals in camcorder history, but the journey is every bit as powerful. A staggering celebration of drugs, fear and new wave rage, Night Feeder was completed at the tail end of San Francisco’s robust post-punk era and was only briefly in limited international release including Poland and a few other locations. Featuring effects that rival Hollywood’s best gore-monsterwork, it’s a vicious battle cry, and one of the best homemade horror films you’ll ever see. 94min, 1988, USA.
