Fuad Ramses III (J.P.de la Houssaye) is reopening the catering shop of his granddaddy (from the
original Blood Feast from 1963). But no sooner has he got his
first job of catering a wedding, are the bridesmaids starting to be
butchered one after the other - by him of course, because he is
possessed by the ancient Babylonian goddess Ishtar. On his trail are 2
rather idiotic cops:

John McConnell, who hardly thinks of anything
else but eating, making allusions to food in almost every dialogue, and
Mark McLachlan, groom-to-be at the wedding
mentioned above, who violently throws up whenever he sees a corpse.
Not sure which direction the case might take (it
might be organ snatchers from Russia), they can't stop Fuad Ramses
III until all the bridesmaids are dead. The wedding still takes place,
though, where Fuad Ramses is feeding the guests the bridesmaids
bodyparts. At the end almost everyone dies including Fuad Ramses &
cop/groom McLachlan, only his (now widowed) wife Toni Wynne & his
colleague McConnell stay alive & decide - corpses piling up around
them - to go have some pancakes !
Not so much a sequel to Blood Feast
from almost 40 years earlier, but a parody done very much in the same
black comedy-style in which Herschell Gordon Lewis also did The Gore
Gore Girls, actually Blood Feast 2 does look almost as if it
was shot only a couple of weeks (and not 29 years) after that movie,
even costumes & settings look like perfect early 70's, & the
humour is equally endearingly sick ... & for some reason, this movie
does actually work, too, with Lewis up to his old tricks - concerning
massive gore & twisted jokes - again, seemingly unaffected by the
time gone by.
Cult director (& Herschell Gordon Lewis
fan) John Waters plays the reverend at the wedding, trying to convert
a few young men (yip, I know what you're thinking & you are
right), but I actually liked the sleeping guy best, who unexpectedly
pops up every now & again (at 2 murder-scenes, twice at the wedding,
in Fuad Ramses's kitchen, ...), just lying there & unnoticed by all
the characters, no explanation given.
