 The movie that introduced the world to graphic, splattery gore! Director HG Lewis moved over from nudie-cuties into the world of the ol' ultra-violence and lowbrow cinema was never the same.
 I got a chance to view this at a drive-in theater over the weekend and that is the perfect way to watch this since it's how it initially made its impact on unwary patrons. While not the greatest movie in the world  by a very long stretch, its historical significance cannot be denied. The characters are all dumb as dirt, the plot, about an Egyptian caterer who's also a serial-killer trying to appease an ancient Egyptian god, is pretty thin and the acting is either over-the-top or just plain awful but for hardcore gorehounds this is ground-zero and just plain old goofy, grand-guignol fun.
 This is part of a loose "gore trilogy" by Lewis which includes 2000 MANIACS and COLOR ME BLOOD RED. AKA FEAST OF FLESH

With that Italian vampire flick!:

The whole "blood trilogy" together with LOVE GODDESSES OF BLOOD ISLAND under an alternate title. A great night out at the drive-in!:
