BLOOD THIRST (1965)
OK so the monster in this Filipino horror flick looks like a guy who has had candle wax melted all over his head or maybe giant genital warts of some sort. There's also some blood drinking going on(so the title is accurate) with women hung upside down and drained to keep a lady young looking, a sleazy guy with a John Waters moustache and they throw in some comedy bits which aren't very funny. It's mostly dull and doesn't really compare to the craziness of the later John Ashley Blood Island films which is the closest thing I can compare it to. Stick with those for maximum thrills from the Philippines.
This movie was made in the 60's but wasn't released until 1971 in the U.S. on the bottom of a double-bill with the similarly titled BLOODSUCKERS.
