J. Cannibal's Feast of Flesh XII

Real-life undertaker and long time zombie fanatic J. Cannibal—dubbed the King of Horror Burlesque—presents a gruesome banquet of midnight mayhem! This frightful night of fun kicks off with Black Thai. Offering up monstrous, Sabbath-inspired riffs with a low end roar loud enough to liquefy your insides, these Vikings of local metal will open up the night so savagely that the stars will eat themselves just to survive! Following their set will be a bevy of grotesque burlesque courtesy of the infamous horror troupe, Black Cat Burlesque. Dedicated to putting the BUMP back into the night, Black Cat Burlesque has been raising pulses, the dead and a whole lot of hell since 2003. As the bad seeds of Boston Burlesque, this scream team mines the depths of their twisted psyches—blending striptease thrills and spookshow chills to push the boundaries of the art form and explore the dark, cobwebbed corners of neo-cabaret.

For the night’s feature, Mr. Cannibal has hand-picked the perversely comic RE-ANIMATOR, based on the classic tale by H.P. Lovecraft. Driven by a wild combination of extreme gore, horror, and comedy: this seminal cult classic has inspired a wide variety of spin-offs, ranging from porn to musicals. You definitely want to catch this one on the big screen!

Free gory goodie bags will be handed out to all, and J. Cannibal will award a number of prizes for the best zombie costumes.

Brought to you by the creative minds of Black Ocean, this will be a show of insanity from beyond the grave that you don’t want to miss! With hundreds of fiends showing up to each Feast of Flesh over the past ten years, come see what the excitement is about for yourself!
A thick slab of praise for J. Cannibal and his Feast of Flesh:

“J. Cannibal, the ‘King of Horror Burlesque.’” —Boston's Weekly Dig

“J. Cannibal's Feast of Flesh, led by real-life undertaker and zombie lover J. Cannibal, is a celebration of all things terrifying.” —The Improper Bostonian

“Think Rocky Horror Picture Show with less androgyny and more anthropophagy.” —The Onion

“[J.Cannibal] is the sort of guy people brag about knowing. After all, he sounds like an exotic, epic character: poet, undertaker, horror-burlesque king, small-press publisher, show promoter, fake-blood engineer.”
—The Boston Phoenix
