Product Description

Sons and daughters of Satan: Let it be known that this is the first and only uncut, authorized release of David Durston's I DRINK YOUR BLOOD. Restored in all its acid-crazed glory, this `70s horror classic is now more gruesome and depraved than ever before--accept no substitutes!

Originally released in February 1971, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD was one of the first motion pictures to be rated X for violence. Aiming to outdo NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, producer Jerry Gross instructed writer/director Durston to discard all of the old monster-mash cliches and shoot straight for the gut with maximum shock value and gore. The result was pure American drive-in genius. Even after 30 years, IDYB still holds up as one of the most entertaining and wildly demented movies of its kind.

Between the bad-taste instincts of exploitation legend Gross (who gave the film its lurid title and distributed it on a double-bill with an cheap black-and-white zombie film he'd rechristened I EAT YOUR SKIN- a.k.a. ZOMBIE, VOODOO BLOODBATH, 1964) and Durston's twisted imagination (rabies, meat pies, LSD, hippie maniacs, construction workers foaming at the mouth--call the Red Cross!), I DRINK YOUR BLOOD plays like a double-barreled shotgun blast, a sugar fix for gore freaks. Just when you think Durston can't push the delirium any further, somebody drags a dead goat across the screen...or an old man in long underwear pukes up his dentures while being strangled...or an electric carving knife strays from a side of ham with disastrous results...or...well, you get the picture.

Unfortunately, the MPAA didn't appreciate the effort. Graphic scenes of bodily dismemberment, multiple stabbings, self-immolation, barbecued rats, gang-bang sex, gut-spilling, decapitation, and the hara-kiri stake impalement of a pregnant woman's stomach all seemed to upset the censors for some strange reason. Ever the exploitationeer, Gross sent the movie out uncut anyway, resulting in pandemonium. With the ratings board cracking down on offenders, Cinemation panicked and prints of the film were hacked to pieces by everyone from projectionists to the local morals squad. The R-rated print seen in most theaters (and on previous, inferior video releases) lacks a crucial plot point and barely makes sense. Despite these trials, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD was a smash success for Gross and even managed to impress a few critics who were unperturbed by the day-glo ad campaign announcing "2 Great Blood-Horrors To Rip Out Your Guts!" The L.A. Times' Kevin Thomas gave I DRINK... a rave, as did then-unknown Joe Dante, who praised it in the pages of FILM BULLETIN. The film even captured a prize at the Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival in Paris.

Words just can't do this movie justice. Like a sheet of high-grade blotter, this DVD of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD packs enough bizarre entertainment value to last for hours and hours. In closing, we can only repeat the demonic invocation of Horace Bones, who tells his followers in the movie's opening scene: "Satan was an acid-head. Drink from his cup. Pledge yourselves, and together we'll all freak out!"

I Drink Your Blood is possibly the best movie about rabies-infected satanic hippies on a killing spree ever made, and it is my favorite American grindhouse/horror/drive-in flick......word's cannot do this little gem of an American horror film justice.
The plot is a about a group of satanic hippie's that costantly drop acid and perform satanic ritual's who come to a small town, and piss off the wrong little boy by forcing his grandpa to take acid. The little boy then get's revenge on them by taking blood from a dead dog he found infected with rabies, and secretly putting it in their meat pie breakfast. They all slowly start to go insane, killing each other off, and go on a rabie's infected rampage of murder and rape. If that does not sound like this coolest movie premise ever to you.........then I don't know what does?
I Drink Your Blood play's out like a comedy most of the time (like my review's) with ridiculous subject matter, hilarious performances, over the top gore effect's, and is one of the most entertaining movie's I have ever seen. It is also (supposably) the first movie to get an X rating in America and I can't recommend this movie enough.

I Drink Your Blood contain's all the essential grindhouse/drive-in elements:

- Rat barbecue's
- Gang rape
- Rabie's infested satanic hippies
- A grandfather that has a bad trip
- Abortion
- Over the top gore
- Meat pie's
- More rape
- Self immolation
- Chicken beheading's
- Decapitation
- More gore
- Satanic ritual's

This Grindhouse Releasing release is (like alway's) amazing. They really went the extra mile to make sure this cult-classic got the release it deserve's.

Wow, where to start? Well first off I should say that I love the horror/zombie/gore stuff. Although this was totally exploited by Fangoria, this is still not a mainstreem movie, and those seem to be the better ones.

Anyway, this movie is really spectacular. One of the biggest problems I, and other fans, seem to have is that most horror movies don't keep us interested, until the last fifteen or twenty mins. But this is an exception. Although the whole movie is not one, big climax it still keeps your interest.

The movie is not as gory as a Lucio Fulci, or H.G. Gordon Lewis film, but it is still has more blood and guts than Friday the 13th or a thriller type of movie.

So basically a hippie cult stays in this tempoary ghost town, due to the construction of dam, and they end up teasing and terrorizing a small boy and his grandfather. To get revenge on them the kid goes out to the woods and kills a rabid dog. He just happens to work in the only bakery left in town, for the time being, so he infects some meat pies with the rabid blood from the dog. The hippie cult eats them, bcomes infected and basically go insane. Pretty original if you ask me.

So anyways, this movie is very well directed and pretty decently acted for a low budget. The main leader of the cult, Horris, probably gives the best performance out of all of them.

The movie has some pretty creepy shots, what with dead bodies, severed heads, blood, and of course the foaming of the mouth. It just has a generally eerie feel to it, as horror movies should. So I can definitly see why Fangoria picked this for a midnight classic. But don't be fooled by their website, you can get this DVD at other stores besides theirs.

So all in all this movie is terrific for the true horror fan. If you choose to pass on this one, well, your loss my friend.

Thanks for reading.

Directed by David Durston (Stigma). A band of Satanist hippies lead by Horace Bones (Bhaskar) roll into a town and begin terrorizing the local folk, raping a local girl who's grandpa goes after them. He fails and is given LSD. This bothers his grandson and he gets back at the hippies by feeding them meat pies infected with blood from a rabid dog. They turn into crazed lunatics and begin killing and/or infecting everything in their path. I DRINK YOUR BLOOD is also know as PHOBIA. The movie is like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD meets Charlie Manson in this gore-drenched 1971 drive-in classic. After consuming rabies infected meat pies, an LSD-addicted hippie cult goes on a vicious murdering rampage! Heavily censored since its original release, this infamous landmark of cinematic brutality is being presented uncut in all its blood-splattered glory! Directed by David Durston with stars Bhaskar, Lynn Lowry, Tyde Kierney and Jack Damon. DVD FEATURES for this film include:
