I Drink Your Blood Blu Ray Review

IDYB1Hippies satanists are going around the back roads of small town America. They are looking for the next thrill and the next glorious kill. They find a town and rape a local girl, feed LSD to a granddad and attack children. This causes anger and also a rotted and toxic meat pies being eaten as revenge. Now the town has cannibal hippies. They love eating, violence and the splatter of human flesh.

IDYB2Grind-house cinema and the ’42nd’ street craze has lead to re evaluations of some of the better sleaze and trash films. I Drink Your Blood is such a film. It is blood soaked (its X rated cut was for violence and not sex as was the norm) and sadistic. Sardonic and subversive in its casual humour. It is also very violent and volatile as well. I didnt like the film having wanted to see it for some time. I was left with a sense though that for some film fans of this movement, it is well worth a visit. It feels like it was inspired by Gordon Lewis splatter films, ethnic rage and hippy hatred. It feels often confused and overall it lacks cohesion. I would however guess some will delight in its darkly comical tones.

IDYBDVDBoth cuts look great on the disk. I X rated is the better film, albeit barely. The deleted scenes are worth exploring for the out and out violence spree ending. The commentary is a hoot. To hear what Bhaskar, (a name that translate from hindi into English as ‘Sun’) talk about the making of such a film and in such a way is quite compelling. He is also very engaged.
