“This soft focus, fuzzy, soap-opera-looking, new wave, horror/police procedural is really a hell of a thing to behold.” — James, LETTERBOXD

A massively enjoyable shot-on-video 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. Especially when the singer of goth-punk combo The Nuns stares directly into the camera and croons: “You SLIT your WRISTS.” 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 ever released on PAL-format VHS in Poland. Featuring effects that rival Hollywood’s best gore-monsterwork, it’s a vicious battle cry and one of the slickest homemade horror films that you’ll ever see.
