The remarkable low-budget horror film BLOOD BATH is an esoteric example of accidental art whose production history is as interesting as the film itself.

Uncredited Executive Producer Roger Corman hired co-director Stephanie Rothman (THE VELVET VAMPIRE) to complete an unfinished and shelved independent thriller directed by Jack Hill (SPIDER BABY), about a killer artist stalking the Beat art scene in Venice, California. Rothman's re-write transformed the villain into a vampire.

Corman embellished BLOOD BATH with ten minutes of rich atmospheric footage from a Yugoslavian film, OPERATION TITIAN, which in turn was revised by Corman protege Francis Ford Coppola as a very obscure feature released exclusively to television, PORTRAIT OF TERROR. This combined the dubbed and re-edited TITIAN with new scenes featuring actors William Campbell (STAR TREK) and Patrick Magee (A CLOCKWORK ORANGE), shot by second-unit director Hill during the filming in Ireland of Coppola's first commercial feature, DEMENTIA 13.

In BLOOD BATH, William Campbell's character retained the same occupation and name (artist "Antonio Sordi", or "Tony") from PORTRAIT. An early cut of the film contained even more footage from TITIAN which was trimmed for the finished theatrical edition released by American-International Productions.

For the television version of BLOOD BATH entitled TRACK OF THE VAMPIRE, Corman and Rothman expanded the 62-minute theatrical cut by eleven minutes, restoring some of the Yugoslavian footage and adding out-takes from the American version (including a three-minute interpretive ballet on the beach by Lori/Linda Saunders).

I received this dvd-r on June 4th and went to watch it on June 5th. The dvd sleeve and the dvd itself clearly list this as being Blood Bath, but when the disc plays, the movie is actually Riot on Sunset Strip; this is also the movie shown on the discs' main menu. If you want Riot on Sunset Strip, that film is in 16x9 widescreen, but obviously you'll be pissed-off once you get ready to watch Blood Bath and that shows up on your screen instead. Hopefully MGM will correct this quickly, as I have read they made the same mistake with their dvd-r of Burn, Witch, Burn.

Judge Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict -- "With multiple directors it's somewhat difficult to determine who is responsible for what, but the overall atmosphere of Blood Bath is impressively creepy. Part of that is due to the actors giving some intense performances, but the lion's share of the credit goes to the nighttime black-and-white photography. It's not quite as stylized as typical noir or horror, but the darker scenes have an interesting edge to them, and even the scenes in daylight have an "off" quality. The idea of somehow capturing life or death on canvas is a good one. Sure Oscar Wilde did it with Dorian Gray, and it's been done in other pics as well, but the whole "Dead Red Nudes" concept is a solidly weird one. But the fact that the film throws in a bizarre vampire subplot to this already over-saturated tale just shows how off the rails an hour-long film can get."

It was another cold mostly dreary winter day so I decided to watch two Prime video movies. I'm really getting my money's worth out of my membership. Today I went with off-beat Vampire stories. Yes, I look for the unusual stories. The first was `Blood Bath' from 1966. Watching it I thought for sure it was Italian made. Later I read up on it, turns out it was filmed in Serbia, of all places, and L.A. It starred William Campbell. I knew him best as Trelane in the original series Star Trek episode `The Squire of Gothos' and as a Klingon in another episode. The story is about a Jekyll and Hyde like vampire. At times he seems like a gentle but rather morbid artist. Other times he is possessed by a vampire artist ancestor of his. The back story for his vampire ancestor was a bit confusing. Nowadays he finds female victims and boils their bodies for some reason. He boils them till they look like soap sculptures. He also makes morbid death paintings of female nudes. As in many films of this type there seems to be an endless supply of naive women victims for him to choose from. Sometimes they're standing under gothic arches on dark streets late at night. Evidently they're waiting to become victims. No they aren't there because they're hookers or anything close to logical like that. Other times they`re swimming alone in bikinis on isolated beaches or hanging out alone by swimming pools at night. One female, after meeting him on the street admiring his art work in a window, is lured to his studio. She then offers to do some modeling for him and strips without even being asked to. Yes, even though his studio looks like it's in the Tower of London only not as cheery, the women don't seem overly concerned about the decor.Read more ›

This is a really nice looking copy of the film, and appears to be in the correct aspect ratio, unlike most of the public domain releases. This runs right at an hour long (62 min, I think), and appears to be the Corman final cut of the movie. This is quite a cult movie, since it had a very convoluted history of various edits, including a first reshoot by Jack Hill, and then a later one by Stephanie Rothman. Rothman apparently added the (rather nonsensical) vampire character, and viewers will be perplexed to see the corpse of Patrick Magee show up, since this is his only surviving scene! I rather prefer the longer, choppier, public domain version that has more of the Jack Hill scenes. Nonetheless, this is an attractive, clean copy. Recommended.
