A celebrity chef turns the tables on his harshest critic. Peter Grey (James Le Gros), an overly zealous television chef kidnaps J.T. Franks (Joshua Leonard), an influential and notoriously snarky food blogger after a particularly nasty review deals the final blow to Grey's already plummeting career. Sequestered deep in the woods of the Hudson Valley, Grey keeps Franks chained up in a basement, presenting him with a series of deceptively simple food challenges - from preparing a perfect egg over easy, to grilling a steak precisely medium rare - punishing him sadistically for anything less than total perfection. A tense thrill-ride served up with wicked wit and culinary flare, BITTER FEAST is an exploration of the creative impulse gone tragically and ferociously awry.

A food critic can dish it out, but can he take it? Revenge is on the menu for notorious blogger J.T. Franks (Joshua Leonard, Humpday, The Blair Witch Project) when he publishes a rumor which leads to the demise of TV chef Peter Grey's culinary empire. Grey (James Le Gros, Zodiac, TV's Mercy) kidnaps the writer, confines him in a remote cabin and presents him with a series of deceptively simple food challenges - from preparing a perfect egg over-easy, to grilling a steak precisely medium rare - punishing him for anything less than total perfection. Bitter Feast is an exploration of the creative impulse gone tragically and ferociously awry. Indie horror icon Larry Fessenden and renowned chef Mario Batali co-star in this tense shocker, which is served up with wicket wit and savory flair.
