"Wow, where to start? Well first off I should say that I love the horror/zombie/gore stuff. Although this was totally exploited by Fangoria, this is still not a mainstreem movie, and those seem to be the better ones.
Anyway, this movie is really spectacular. One of the biggest problems I, and other fans, seem to have is that most horror movies don't keep us interested, until the last fifteen or twenty mins. But this is an exception. Although the whole movie is not one, big climax it still keeps your interest.
The movie is not as gory as a Lucio Fulci, or H.G. Gordon Lewis film, but it is still has more blood and guts than Friday the 13th or a thriller type of movie.
So basically a hippie cult stays in this tempoary ghost town, due to the construction of dam, and they end up teasing and terrorizing a small boy and his grandfather. To get revenge on them the kid goes out to the woods and kills a rabid dog. He just happens to work in the only bakery left in town, for the time being, so he infects some meat pies with the rabid blood from the dog. The hippie cult eats them, bcomes infected and basically go insane. Pretty original if you ask me.
So anyways, this movie is very well directed and pretty decently acted for a low budget. The main leader of the cult, Horris, probably gives the best performance out of all of them.
The movie has some pretty creepy shots, what with dead bodies, severed heads, blood, and of course the foaming of the mouth. It just has a generally eerie feel to it, as horror movies should. So I can definitly see why Fangoria picked this for a midnight classic. But don't be fooled by their website, you can get this DVD at other stores besides theirs.
So all in all this movie is terrific for the true horror fan. If you choose to pass on this one, well, your loss my friend.
Thanks for reading."
Possibly the best movie about rabies-infected satanic hippie

"I Drink Your Blood is possibly the best movie about rabies-infected satanic hippies on a killing spree ever made, and it is my favorite American grindhouse/horror/drive-in flick......word's cannot do this little gem of an American horror film justice.
The plot is a about a group of satanic hippie's that costantly drop acid and perform satanic ritual's who come to a small town, and piss off the wrong little boy by forcing his grandpa to take acid. The little boy then get's revenge on them by taking blood from a dead dog he found infected with rabies, and secretly putting it in their meat pie breakfast. They all slowly start to go insane, killing each other off, and go on a rabie's infected rampage of murder and rape. If that does not sound like this coolest movie premise ever to you.........then I don't know what does?
I Drink Your Blood play's out like a comedy most of the time (like my review's) with ridiculous subject matter, hilarious performances, over the top gore effect's, and is one of the most entertaining movie's I have ever seen. It is also (supposably) the first movie to get an X rating in America and I can't recommend this movie enough.
I Drink Your Blood contain's all the essential grindhouse/drive-in elements:
- Rat barbecue's
- Gang rape
- Rabie's infested satanic hippies
- A grandfather that has a bad trip
- Over the top gore
- Meat pie's
- More rape
- Self immolation
- Chicken beheading's
- More gore
- Satanic ritual's
This Grindhouse Releasing release is (like alway's) amazing. They really went the extra mile to make sure this cult-classic got the release it deserve's. Included is a full director's commentary, director's cut of the film, deleted scene's, interview's, trailers, there is even a full length version of I Eat Your Skin as an easter egg! If you go on the special feature's page it even has an axe that when you click on, chop's one of the character's in half!.....Pretty sweet (Just to give you an idea of the extent they put effort into making this a good release). Thank you Grindhouse for releasing an amazing print of an amazing movie. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"What can be said about "I Drink Your Blood"? Well, for starters it's one of the most little known and under appreciated exploitation films ever made. It holds the distinction of being one of the first films to ever be given an "X" rating for violent content. Though this film is not quite as graphic as some bootleg video dealers would have you believe, it does have a decent amount of gore and disturbing content on hand. Unfortunatly this film suffered the same MPAA and theatre owner censorship/butchery as Wes Craven's "Last House On The Left", so the film ended up in about 20 different cuts. Until the release of this dvd the most complete version was a Japanese bootleg that would usually run you about $40, and the picture quality was unbearable. Fans of sick, 70's exploitation will be enthralled by this dvd, but for the squeamish and mainstream fans who cant get past the cheap effects and poor acting, I advise you to stear clear of this dvd. To sum this up: they sure dont make them like this anymore, so take advantage of this dvd while its available, or you'll be kicking yourself when you're missing out."
