My rating:  4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Unbelievable.  After watching the film I checked out the trailer and right after the announcer (which sounds like Casey Kasem) says the last fifteen minutes will jolt you out of your seat, the trailer shows you shots of the final minute of the film which is supposed to be a shocker.  Way to spoil the damn movie.  It's not much of a spoiler since this is pretty dull to begin with.  It plays out kind of like a soap opera and it's about as paced as one, too.   And for a title called BLOOD MANIA you'd think there'd be some blood but that's almost non-existent.  There is some nudity sprinkled around but it's not enough (in quality or quantity) to come close to saving this picture.  The performances are fine if not slow and relaxed.  The score is less than desirable and sometimes it's downright irritating. This is part of a 3 disc set from Mill Creek called Gorehouse Greats Collection.  The widescreen print looks fantastic (especially for a collection such as this one).  There are no extras.  I picked this set up for pennies since it was missing two of the discs so I can't comment on any of the films other than the four films (two per side of a double sided disc) I watched from disc 1.
