The last time that I checked, The Ward was a total suckfest of a movie so, marketing your next horror release by associating yourself with a failure isn’t exactly a high selling point for audiences. The psychological horror Dark Feed comes from the screenwriters behind the John Carpenter flop, giving horror fans a body of work that feels more like an extended episode of Masters of Horror rather than a legitimately terrifying film.
Dark Feed follows a film crew as they experience weird occurrences on location at a closed-down mental hospital. Eventually, the evil that lurks inside the walls begins to feed off of the individuals and take over, causing people to behave strangely. Sound familiar? That’s because the scenario has been done before in films like Grave Encounters and Session 9, and done with better results.
