THE FEAST d. Lee Haven Jones, 2021 + Short: WITCH’S MASK at Picturehouse Hackney (08 AUG 19:30):

“You are cordially invited to a dinner party to die for…

When a wealthy family and their guests gather for a dinner party in the remote Welsh countryside, they have little idea of what awaits them. Hosted at their luxurious new house, the family have a valuable mining venture at stake and the atmosphere is tense.

The arrival of a mysterious young woman who has been hired as a waitress brings a quiet, unsettling presence to the evening. And as the night progresses, she soon begins to challenge the family’s beliefs, unravelling the illusion they’ve created with slow, deliberate, and terrifying consequences.

A carnivorously chilling new horror film, THE FEAST features an outstanding cast and marks an unforgettable feature debut from Lee Haven Jones.

This screening of THE FEAST is presented by MASSIVE, with the short film Witch’s Mask by Laura N-Tamara, selected by Minute Shorts, playing before the film.
