About this Site

         A veteran of cyberporn investigations, Australian cop Philip Jackson is no stranger to the dangerous side of sexual fetishes. He may have found his sickest case yet when he discovers a sinister side to an American website devoted to fat-admiring men and obese women called "feeders" and "gainers." Could the man behind it all be force-feeding missing women to death?

"Consumption is evolution."
              - Michael Carter

         Many of you have probably never heard of this film before. It's a shame that so many fantastic films get swept under the carpet while atrocious films get all the glory. (Take 90% of the steaming pile-of-shit horror remakes we've been forced to endure for example.) It really bothers me when a unique and clever film such as FEED comes and goes as if it were a fart in the wind. So here I am, doing my part to get this film the notoriety and respect it deserves.
         When it comes to fresh material, FEED is what I'd imagine it would feel like if someone was intentionally drowning you until the point where every red-blood cell in your body was screaming for oxygen. But a split second before you expire, they lift your head into the fresh air and the initial breath is so refreshing you feel euphoric. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I just compared this film to a near-death experience. To put it simply, FEED is brilliant.
         FEED is based on an underground sexual fetish known as "feederism." Feederism is a sexual fetish (specifically a type of body alteration fetishism), centered on the practice of eating large amounts of food. The feeder provides the gainer with an abundant supply of food, either to encourage weight gain or simply for delight in the act of feeding. The feeder is typically more dominant, while the gainer is often more submissive, although this is not always the case. The fetish caters to those who have fantasies of growing fatter, or feeding another. The fondling of the adipose tissue of an overweight or obese person for one with a fat fetish is usually sexually arousing and is often similar to that of mammary intercourse ("tittie fucking"). They may be aroused by the presence of a pannus or other hanging flaps of skin such as those on the thighs, arms, and back. Some people are aroused by the appearance of male breasts ("man boobs" or "moobs"), caused by the presence of fat under the chest, known as psuedogynecomastia.
         I challenge anyone to try and convince me that a horror plot based on "feederism" isn't original and (lets face it) intriguing. We've been bombarded with hoards of zombies, increasingly watered down slashers and poltergeists for decades and it's about damned time someone stepped up to the plate to deliver something new and original. (No pun intended.)
         The acting in FEED is superb. There isn't one actor I would replace. Most notably, Alex O'Loughlin and Patrick Thompson who actually came up with the idea for the film. O'Loughlin plays the role of Michael Carter, a man who runs a website where women are fed until they are unable to move or care for themselves. He participates in sexual acts with these women which includes smearing them in food, force feeding them and then masturbating onto their chests. Thompson plays the role of Detective Phillip Jackson, a veteran of cyberporn investigations who has discovered something terribly wrong is happening and is determined to find out what is hidden within the pages of the grotesque website.
         Remember that feeling you felt at the end of The Sixth Sense? The feeling that only someone who has witnessed a completely unforeseen ending to a film could feel? Well, I'm more than comfortable saying that the ending in FEED is pure brilliance. It's the best ending to a film I've ever seen and I'm still in awe everytime I see it.
         If there is one film off the entire website (as of 12/07/07) that I would get down on my knees and beg you to purchase, it would be FEED. Plain and simple... FEED IS A MUST HAVE!

         P.S. - Watch for the scene where a man is being fed his own penis. Classic.

          - The concept for FEED was conjured by the minds of Alex O'Loughlin and Patrick Thompson, the two main actors in the film. They then handed their idea to Kieran Galvin who wrote the screenplay.

          - The sequence with the man being fed his own penis was inspired by real life German cannibal Armin Meiwes. Meiwes advertised on the internet for a well-built male prepared to be slaughtered and then consumed. The victim, 43-year-old Bernd-Jurgen Brandes, answered the advert in March 2001. Meiwes told investigators he took the victim back to his home in Rotenburg, where he agreed to have his penis cut off, which Mr Meiwes then flambéed and served up to eat together. Meiwes then stabbed the victim repeatedly in the neck and dissected the corpse.

          - Many real-life "gainers" and "feeders" have emailed producer Melissa Beauford about the film. Many of them were skeptical at first but later gained respect for the project.

          - Alex O'Loughlin did his own stunts throughout the film. When it came time for him to jump off a 25-foot high balcony, the crew was terrified that he'd hurt himself. He did not.

          - The bright pink "gainer" and "feeder" room was a set constructed in director Brett Leonard's own house. He later stated, "I'm actually living with this film."

          - While working on the "fat suits" the special effects artists had multiple posters of morbidly obese women tacked on the walls of the shop. These were used as references for the suit.

          - The skin on the fat suit alone weighed 66 pounds.
