Perhaps one of the most important and craziest drive-in/exploitation movies out there is I Drink Your Blood. Essentially, it’s about a Satanic cult that gets infected with rabies when they eat tainted meat pies and go on a killing rampage in a small town they are holed up in. The characters are nearly cartoonish, it’s filled with blood and gore, a far out, zany soundtrack and premise that they seemed misinformed about. That doesn’t stop I Drink Your Blood from being one of my personal favorites!
Grindhouse Releasing has been releasing their library of films and this is the moment long time fans have been waiting for. On November 8th, I Drink Your Blood will be available on Blu-ray! Not only will the old features from the DVD be included, but a slew of new ones will be added as well, but that’s not all! The release will include two other vintage features, I Eat Your Skin and Blue Sextet, the latter of which has been unseen.
“I Drink Your Blood is one of the most infamous movies in the history of exploitation films,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “Rescuing this lost gem was one of our most important achievements. And being able to finally unite I Drink Your Blood with its legendary co-feature I Eat Your Skin, both fully remastered in stunning HD for the very first time, takes that accomplishment one step further. We’ve spent almost a decade working on this release, and I feel it’s our finest yet. I’m also thrilled that so many theaters are playing I Drink Your Blood. We’ve been trying to make this happen for years and have finally succeeded. Seeing this movie on the big screen with an audience is a mind-blowing experience. No self-respecting horror fan should miss this rare opportunity.”
I Drink Your Blood stars Bhaskar, John Damon, and cult superstar Lynn Lowry (George A. Romero’s The Crazies, David Cronenberg’s The Came from Within, and Paul Schrader’s The Cat People)
