SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO CULT CLASSICS

Customer Reviews

Just say no to drugs, but say yes to this movie.
Robert I. Hedges
Scenes are often cut together so haphazardly you'll think big chunks of celluloid must have dropped on the floor while the glue was drying.
A. Griffiths
This is a masterpiece of horrible cult cinema, probably the worst film ever made.

This movie is absolutely sublime. If you appreciate truly terrible cinema, you MUST order this turkey now! Right now! This movie has it all! Terrible plot, awful dialogue, wooden acting (I am convinced some of the actors are actually made of wood), and THE most ridiculous monster in movie history, period. The plot revolves around Herschell, an ex Vietnam vet biker who gets involved with some pretty unsavory situations in the diabolical and powerful poultry industry, but thanks to the Grintner treatment, we never quite understand what is going on, and confusion reigns.
As bad as this sounds there is so much more that combines on so many levels to make this one of the very worst of the worst. This is worse than anything by Ed Wood or Al Adamson. My favorite diversions in the movie are twofold. First, director Brad Grintner (you see a lot more of him in the DVD extras) narrates this whole mess with a pro-religion, anti-drug, anti-giant mutant murdering turkey monologue, which I could make neither heads nor tails of. In the manner of William 'One Shot' Beaudine and Ray Dennis Steckler, he clearly did the narrative all in the first take, so you get a bonus of Grintner lighting cigarettes, smoking, and having horrible hacking coughing fits on camera. The second delicious diversion in the film is the scene right after Herschell becomes the turkey monster when he reunites with his girlfriend. I won't spoil it for you, but it's certainly a scene that you will never forget. I won't say more on the subject other than that I guarantee that you will love this film.

Get ready to watch one of the strangest gore movies ever made. Our hero,"Herschell", is an Elvis look-alike on a chopper who smokes superweed with the druggie sister of a bible fanatic and turns into a psychopathic turkey...you read that correctly...a killer butterball that has taken a special turkey serum from shady scientists.
The entire film is a load of laughs, and if you're looking for a so called "cult movie", you've found one on my top ten. Here's a drive-in cheese-pleaser will leave you needing one more helping of this undiscovered holiday classic.

Heard about and read enough about the reputation of this film that I had to pick this up when I saw it at the local shop. This is review is of the Something Weird Video release of the film on vhs. 70s cheese with slasher, anti-drugs, and pro-Christian themes. Troma-like and so bad it's comedic and must see.

yes...who would have thought that would exist and that it would involve a nod to "The Fly". Basically the story is that the character Hershal, a Vietnam veteran is traveling the highway when he meets a girl who takes him to a drug party where he takes a series of drugs, then gets a job testing some scientific breed of turkey which causes his head to turn into a turkey head. He then goes around killing drug dealers, till he prays and repents to god to take away is affliction....

for a novelty, its pretty fun, but not something you'd really wana see on your shelf. $15 is a bit much for this movie.

If you ever wanted to see an anti-drug, pro-jesus, giant turkey monster that sucks the blood of drug addict's...have I got a movie for you. After becoming addicted to laced weed Hershell(aka turkey monster) takes a job testing/eating experimental turkey meat in a lab that makes him turn into a ruthless, feathered maniac (duh, everyone knows that when you eat tainted turkey meat you turn into a turkey monster). Now as a 6 ft. tall giant turkey he wanders around town looking for tainted blood to satisfy his turkey need's, hanging his victims upside down and sucking their blood with his giant turkey beak! (All while gobbling profusely!)
This is a masterpiece of horrible cult cinema, probably the worst film ever made. That's exactly why I'm giving this film 5 stars! As bad as it is, it's still more entertaing than so called "good" film's. Not recommended...but GO BUY IT NOW!

I willingly spent 30 of my hard-earned dollars to own a copy of this film when you only could get it on VHS. so all I own is the film itself, a film that brought me and ten of my friends into full-blown MST3K mode when we saw it once (complete with rewinding and watching a couple scenes over and over because they were so bad). A friend of mine had thought to bring PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE because he thought it was bad, but quickly yielded. This was worse. Obviously. And therein lies its beauty.
The fact that the DVD contains something entitled "Brad Grinter: Nudist" puts it into the realm of the sublime.

Blood Freak (1972) is a strange film that takes some odd characters, puts them in some weird situations, exposes them to illicit drugs, adds some crazed bloodletting by a guy in a turkey head mask, then wraps things up with a twist ending that apparently is supposed to serve as a warning about the dangers of drug use.

Is it worth your time? Well, if you are interested in conventional cinema with a coherent plot, reasonable sounding dialog, halfway decent special effects, and in focus camera work . . . probably not.

The `so bad that it is good' factor, the gore (which is substantial for the time), and the ridiculous looking turkey-headed killer, contribute to the film's cult appeal. Steve Hawkes, stars in the film that he co-wrote and co-directed with Brad Grinter, who appears as a cigarette smoking narrator.

If you find your curiosity peaked by a man who eats chemically altered turkey and is transformed into a crazed turkey-headed killer, slaying young women to drink their blood, you might try renting Blood Freak, or look for it on TMC Underground, before you consider shelling out the big bucks for the currently discontinued DVD release. The DVD does have a number of extras that may add to your appreciation of this oddity.
