Meet the new Ramses and Ishtar in first images from the Blood Feast remake

Filming is underway on writer/director Marcel Walz's remake of H.G. Lewis's 1963 splatter classic BLOOD FEAST, and production company Gundo Entertainment has provided the first official look at the film with these images of the director and cast on set.

This new take on BLOOD FEAST has the following synopsis:

Fuad Ramses and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long lonely nights, he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess ISHTAR. He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms. After this pivotal night, Fuad begins a new life, in which murder and cannibalism become his daily bread. He starts to prepare a ritual FEAST to honor his new mistress, a lavish affair dripping with BLOOD, organs, and intestines of human victims. As butchered bodies are heaped upon the Altar of Ishtar, Fuad slowly slips further into madness, until he is no more than the goddess’s puppet, who also thirsts for the blood of Fuad’s wife and daughter...

Featured in these pictures are the film's stars Robert Rusler as Fuad Ramses, Caroline Williams as his wife Louise, Sophie Monk as their daughter Penny, and Sadie Katz as the goddess Ishtar.

The concept established by H.G. Lewis and original screenwriter A. Louise Downe is a fun one, the cast Walz has assembled is solid, and the gore by Ryan Nicholson is sure to be great, so this is one remake I'm really excited to check out.

If you'd like to help this BLOOD FEAST be all it can be, the filmmakers are running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the post-production process.
