This is one of SWV's earlier releases and comes in that flimsy paper DVD box. The first title is 'Blood Suckers'[80mins/1972]. The story is about an Oxford student who disappears in Greece, get's a "missing persons" search party for him, and then weird things happen during the search. The title 'Blood Suckers' and the freaky cover art make this movie seem a lot more interesting than it is. The pace of the movie is slow with a ton of that archaic British acting.

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.

While an ardent fan of BAD horror movies, I can think of very few complimentary remarks to make about this turgid waste of money. Aside from the ballyhoo on the cover (which I KNOW was part of the allure of the Drive-in) there is little to be entertained with these 2 yawners. The first picture BLOOD SUCKERS (which is titled FREEDOM SEEKERS on this print) is a horrid mess. It felt more like a bad episode of THE HARDY BOYS TV series. The sad thing is, this is worse! This film can't decide if its DRACULA, SHAFT or BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. (Disclaimer:If you love any of these films don't see this film) What's even more tragic is the cast! Alex Davion (remember "Ted Casablanca" in VALLEY OF THE DOLLS) plays one of the most boring action heros to be put on the screen. Patrick McNee is his usual regal self. The truly SAD casting decision in this film (as if there could be just ONE) is Peter Cushing in a most thankless role. His tears at the end of the movie seem more like remorse for having signed on for this mess! Vampire movie? You'll be greatly disappointed. There is barely a shot of a campire to be found here. Lots of comparisons to vampirism and orgasm, but who really cares. This was a waste of 80 minutes. Just when I though things HAD to get "better" in the bad movie sense of the word, along comes BLOOD THIRST! If you were confused by the first picture, just wait til this one! Filmed in the Phillipines, the story centers around an American detective summoned to Manila to help an old friend investigate a series of brutal murders. Is it a vampire? Well, even I wasn't sure at the end! We do get some fun shots of some monster with what looks like elephantitis, but even he is not much fun. What a bore! Don't waste your time or your 20 bucks!

This may be the most uninteresting DVD so far in the ever-growing Something Weird catalog. Once again, a nice package and an authentic recreation of an actual double-bill...but these two movies [are bad]...(...)
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.
