"BLOOD CULT is back! The infamous story about a cult follower who kills co-eds and takes a body part from them. So horrific not even the fat police chief can figure this out. Some of the most graphic murders are in this movie like a co-ed who gets smacked around with her boyfriend's severed head! Not to be missed but BLOOD CULT is not for the squeemish! Finally, BLOOD CULT is on DVD with a commentary by director Christopher Lewis (REVENGE, THE RIPPER) and the music editor and special FX man! BLOOD CULT was released in 1985 by "UNITED HOME VIDEO" and is 80 minutes long. BLOOD CULT is followed by REVENGE which found its way to video and DVD after being OOP since 1986. HERE IS THE BASIC INFO:"ONE OF THE STRANGEST CRIMES IN RECOREDED HISTORY TOOK PLACE ON A SMALL, MID-WESTERN CAMPUS. EACH TIME THE KILLER STRUCK, HE MUTILATED HIS VICTIM, LEAVING A GOLDEN AMULET NEAR THE BODY. THE SHERIFF WAS BAFFELED BY THE STRING OF SERIAL STYLE MURDERS.THE SHERIFF'S DAUGHTER IS NOW GOING TO UNCOVER THE CRIMES IN A BLOOD BATH CALLED "BLOOD CULT"!"
Blood Cult rules!

"Blood Cult is the greatest horror movie of all time...I mean,the total gratuitous violence and gore,the totally cheesy shower killing,which rips off about 4 horror movies in one scene...This movie is awesome...Everyone and their dog should own a copy of Blood Cult."

"This is a "better than agerage" low budget slasher flick from the mid 80's. The story rervolves around a college town sheriff tracking a "witch cult" that keeps killing college students. The sheriff's daughter and the local doctor help him with the case, but are they really helping him at all? There are many leads and twists in this movie that keep you wondering and the end is not what you would expect. You may need to watch it a couple of times to really get it. worth checking out. And I'm not saying that just because it was filmed in my neck of the woods, I've given many a bad movie made here my honest opinion."
The best direct to video slasher film ever to be made in Tul

"i can't for the life of me figure out why i've now owned no less than three copies of this 1985 direct to video classic. originally purchased for $2 on VHS at my local mom and pop video store back years ago, i found myself unable to stop watching.
that said, i am not one of those people like the movie's director who is trying to put a nice face on this incompetent, meandering piece of beta dirge. to listen to him on the commentary track, still nigh upon two decades later he is convinced that, while the movie was not without its shortcomings, it was still a good effort. wrong. everything about this movie is terrible from top to bottom. despite a 90 minute run-time, any moderately competent editor could have distilled this down to a brisk nine minutes without sacrificing key dialogue, crucial scenes or moments of "terror".
high points include hilariously bad dialogue overdubs, the artist's rendering of the dog symbol on the trinkets (maybe the make-a-wish foundation was on set to help?), the butterball daughter's fumbled lines (does christopher lewis know how to say "cut"?), first rate D-actor scream performances from victim #2 and the blue-plate-special-anna-coke cafeteria cashier, oh man oh man. i could go on but you're still reading this instead of immediately purchasing this item with the fastest possible shipping option.
grab some finger salad and enjoy."
A shot-on-video movie finally gets a review. By moi....

"It seems that there is someone on a college campus killing girls by dismemberment and leaving only one clue in the crime scene: a golden amulet with a dogs head on it. The local sheriff is up for re-election and the only sure way to win is to solve the murders. Is the long-dead cult Caninus behind the evil doings? And if so, why? BLOOD CULT isn't scary. It's pretty gory. You got to hand it to the actors: if they hammed it up anymore, an Easter dinner could be served to the crew. RECCOMENDED TO FANS OF:
Hell Night (1981)
The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) CAST
Charles Ellis......Sheriff Wilbois
Josef Hardt.......Detective THE MOVIE: 2/4 THE PICTURE QUALITY: 4/10 Presented in it's original aspect ratio of 1.33:1, BLOOD CULT has it's scenes where the camera becomes mirkey and you can't see some things. THE AUDIO QUALITY: 8/10 2.0 stereo sound is fine on my tv's sound system. THE SPECIAL FEATURES: Commentary with the director, musical director and effects supervisor, several trailers for both this film and others.
