I Drink Your Blood (1970)

Director: David E. Durston

Starring: Bhaskar Roy Chowdhury, Jadin Wong, Rhonda Fultz, George Patterson, Riley Mills, John Damon, Elizabeth Marner-brooks

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Rabid, drug-infested hippies on a blood-crazed killing rampage!

Plot: A band of satanist hippies roll into a town and begin terrorizing the local folk. They rape a local girl and her 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.


My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

I've been gone for a while on an extended working vacation (comic/movie/nerd conventions) and last night was my first real night home, relaxed and ready to watch something as I hadn't seen a movie in over a week (it was murder). I decided to go for an exploitation triple feature starting with I DRINK YOUR BLOOD (1970), I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (1978) and DOUBLE AGENT '74 (1973) delivering lots of blood & boobs. What a fun night.

DRINK was a lot more fun than what you'd expect but be warned that the hippie boobs are largely confined to the first few minutes and then a brief scene near the end but it's filled with unintentional laughs (I LOVED the little kid who shoots a rabid dog with a shotgun, fills a syringe with its blood and injects it into meat pies which he gives to the villainous hippies), a shit ton of gore and gorgeous women!

Did you know that Satan is an acid head? Me neither but the Indian hippie leader said so it must be true. This flick is filled with outrageous shit like that. It's a relatively short movie at only 83 minutes. You'll hardly be bored if you like low budget horror flicks from this era. It's one of the better ones. I had a fun time with it. It's an amusing premise with some bad-t0-OK acting. The ending is much too abrupt but you can watch the original downbeat ending as an extra on the Fangoria DVD. It's got a lot of extras including trailers, outtakes, deleted scenes, a half hour doc and more.

So THAT'S how you use a penis pump!

Here's the whole thing on YouTube if you want to go right to it.
