The Feast: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Sometimes mother nature is a real mother. That's the premise behind "The Feast," a Welsh eco-horror that looks positively claustrophobic. The film's press release described it as "a slow burn meditation on history and tradition, greed and responsibility, identity and difference. 'The Feast' is a contemporary morality tale that questions who is truly meant to inherit the earth, permeated with a mounting sense of dread that leads to a horrifying, blood-soaked conclusion."

Sounds scary! Here's everything you need to know about "The Feast."

What is The Feast?

"The Feast" is a Welsh-language film set in a countryside estate in Wales where a wealthy family hosts a fancy dinner party. One of the guests plans on buying some of the nearby land for drilling, which upsets a neighbor who recounts fables about the land being cursed. "The Feast" is a slow-burn eco-horror that "merges woodland folklore and bloodthirsty revenge with Mother Earth as its reaper," according to our review from Matt Donato.

The Feast Cast

Julian Lewis Jones and Nia Roberts star as wealthy socialites Gwyn and Glenda, who live with their sons Gweirydd (Sion Alun Davies) and Guto (Steffan Cennydd). Annes Elwy plays Cadi, a reserved young woman hired to cater the dinner party at their lavish home. It's her job to do basic tasks, like preparing the food, removing used dishes from the table, and keeping wine glasses topped off. The guests include business partner Euros (Rhodri Meilir) and neighbor Mair (Lisa Palfrey), who get into a spirited discussion about the dangers of drilling on that slice of land.
