The notes are a bit insulting.
Joseph A. Jenkins Jr.
The only extra feature is a really poor copy of the trailer for the movie.

Not at all bad as a relic of 50's sci-fi, it just could have been better.

This is a fun AIP 50's Sci-Fi film! Perhaps a little more low budget than some AIP pictures as the spaceship is poorly animated and the title creature is the reused spaceman suit from Teenage Caveman. However, the plot is interesting and there are some well done suspense scenes.
Plot concerns a scientist who crashes on his way back from a space flight. When he is found, he appears dead but no rigor mortis has set in. What everyone does not know is that he was not alone on the ship. He revives just after the stowaway rips the head off one of the good-guy scientists. Once revived, he finds that he is carrying the offspring of the alien stowaway.
Film is quick-paced (around 60 minutes) and entertaining. Not a classic, but well worth watching. This DVD from Retromedia is much better than the others I own (Bride and the Beast, Mad Monster, Teenage Zombies), but is still a far cry from ones put out by Image Entertainment. There are some scratches and occasional (albeit rare) sound splices. No extras on this DVD. Nice title to have and I doubt other companies will release so I recommend it.

Co-written and produced by Gene Corman, with Roger Corman as the executive producer, Night of the Blood Beast (1958) is a good representation of the Z grade science fiction movies of the late 50's.
Directed by Bernard L. Kowalski, who also helmed Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959), the movie stars, among others, John Baer, Angela Greene, and Ed Nelson, from Teenage Caveman (1958), The Brain Eaters (1959), and TV's Peyton Place (1964).
The movie starts off proper with an astronaut in a small capsule supposedly returning to Earth after a brief orbit. Something goes wrong, and after much techno babble, "The negative, cross-indexed hyper dyne ion chamber is reading 8 million psi!", "The multi-functional thyroid chronometer is unfunctional!", the small capsule crashes to Earth. Two individuals find the capsule (not much of a rescue party) and discover their space-traveling colleague is no longing among the living. They radio the rest of their small group, who soon arrive, and then they document everything and take the body back to some dinky, remote radar station they are using for a base. What they don't realize is that their chum didn't come back from space alone...oooooh...(cue creepy music)
A cursory analysis of the dead man reveals he is dead, but he isn't. The older scientist keeps saying, "That's impossible" every time they find another indication that the dead man may not really be dead. Soon after stuff starts happening...the radio goes kaput, the lights no longer light, vehicles no longer run...seems a magnetic field is playing havoc with just about everything. And to top things off, there's a space thingy running around, which makes it's appearance known by breaking some windows.

NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST
Is the Ventura release listed here the same as [another] version reviewed by everyone at this site?...
NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST is an enjoyable but cheap and somewhat predictable fare. The actors do the best they can with the material. Some elements are reminescent of other films. The Quatermass Xperiment, for instance, also features an astronaut who comes back to earth, a man who should be dead, but who is kept alive and consumed by an alien parasite. This film has the "momma" or "papa" alien aboard the rocket as well. It will become the protagonist of the film.
The body scan of the astronaut, Major John Corcoran (Michael Emmet) with the incubating alien parasites in his chest cavity is rather cool. Dr. Wyman (Tyler McVey) has his head bitten off but we are spared the gore. (Did it originslly show more?) We find out later that the alien has appropriated the dead doctor's knowledge and language. Didn't Corman already do this bisiness in ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS?
This film is hardly a Roger Corman classic. Esentially he assisted his brother who directed this film and the BEAST WITH A MILLION EYES. The script is poor and steals profusely from others. The monstrous alien is fashioned from a recycled costume used in TEENAGE CAVEMAN.
The sets are essentially Griffith Park (plenty of fences) and Bronson Caves (seen in lots of movies!).
... What became of the 35 mm original? Is it lost? It is sad if this is the best copy anyone could find. Many films have been lost through careless circulation.
The notes on the box are quoted from LAST GASPS: HORRIBLE HORRORS FROM HORROR HEROES by Thorn Sherman. However, I wish you luck trying to find it...!
The notes close with another peculiar statement, that the "lucky film fan ...
