In this new thriller from Joe Maggio (Paper Covers Rock), an over-zealous television chef (Peter Grey) kidnaps a powerful and notoriously snarky food critic (J.T. Franks) after a particularly nasty review delivers the final blow to Grey's already plummeting career. Sequestered deep in the woods of the Hudson Valley, Grey keeps Franks chained up like an animal, presenting him with a series of deceptively simple cooking challenges - from eggs over easy to precisely grilled steak medium rare, exacting revenge for anything less than total perfection. An exploration of the creative impulse gone awry, BITTER FEAST is a film that will satisfy the appetites of both foodies and thrill seekers alike.
