BLOOD (1974)

 Andy Milligan's films are all pretty bad but as long as they have that chaotic charm I find them at least worth a watch. This one is terrible for the first half of it's running time with endless and pointless dialogue scenes then about halfway through it starts to get batshit crazy and my intense patience is rewarded. From what I can figure out this is Milligan's version of a classic monster mash flick. You get a wolfman character named Lawrence Talbot, the daughter of Dracula, disfigured servants and even Baron Frankenstein shows up at the end. There's also some blood-drinking/man-eating plants ala LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS for some inexplicable reason. Hands get chopped off, blood gets sucked, there's some meat-cleaver mayhem and the title doesn't lie. Check it out if don't have very high expectations. IMDB lists the runtime at 74 minutes but I've only ever seen the 57 minute version and even at that it feels like a long film at points.
