First up is "Blood Suckers" which is about a young man, Patrick Mower, who has become part of a satanic vampiric cult. His friends and family are on a mission to rescue him. Eventually they do. But once back home, the man has turned a bit weird and now likes to suck blood. Patrick McNee stars and Peter Cushing is in there too. I remember renting this on VHS many years ago and it didn't leave much of an impression then. It hasn't really gotten any better, but it is watchable and has it's moments. The print used here has the pre-release title of "Freedom Seeker" on it --- now that's somthing weird.
Well, after one mediocre flick, I was looking forward to feature #2 which I had never seen (although I remember seeing photos of the monster(?) in old issues of Famous Monsters magazine....or maybe it just looks like a creature from the Outer Limits...I don't know). Well, all I got to say is I now know why the 1965 filipino horror flick BLOOD THIRST took 6 years to find a release in the US on the bottom of this double bill. Absolutely mind-numbingly dull from start to finish, this 73 minute b/w melodrama left this viewer in a comatose state. Talk talk talk, blah blah blah.... and nothing happens. And that monster mask is pretty damn fake (in the whole 1 minute of screen time you see it). This one is just plain bad....not even good for laughs.
Something Weird DVD's are usually still a good buy because of the extras included, but here's a case where even those are mediocre.Read more ›
Blood Thirst[72mins/1971] is a story about a series of grisly crimes occurring to young women in the Philippines. Then an American 'sex-crime' expert comes to Manila to lend his expertise. This movie is in b&w and features many Filipino actors of the day. Despite the title, there is not much gore or blood and the movie has the look and feel of something from the early 60's instead of 1971.
As always with SWV DVD's, there is a nice amount of extra material. First you get six Double Bill trailers(Blood Thirst/Blood Suckers[2:21],The Crawling Thing/Creature of Evil[1:45],Devil Woman/Dragons Never Die[3:23],The Embalmer/The She Beast[1:00],Night of the Witches/Dr. Frankenstein on Campus[1:00],Orgy of the Living Dead[2:04]).
Then you get three different sets of old Drive-in Intermission clips. These include ads for those wacky snack bars with the radio-active looking food and drinks along with announcements for upcoming shows/movies and reminders to return the drive-in speakers. There is also a Gallery of Drive-in Exploitation Art with Intermission Announcements.
This gallery features posters of exploitation movies along with ads for upcoming live shows including some spook shows of the day.Read more ›

Incense for the Damned (1970) or Blood Suckers (USA), is one of those odd English horror films you find at some rare store. Read more
Something wierd can be counted on to find obscure horror features and stick them out on dvd. That's a good thing for sure. In this case the prints are in not to great of shape. Read morePublished on November 1, 2008 by Michael Dobey
