Screened in partnership with our very own Psycho Cinema!
Two brothers are guided by the disembodied brain of their favorite occult uncle to find a virgin and prepare a blood buffet to raise cannibal goddess Sheetar! This is one of the most all-out bonkers gore films of the video age. The death scenes are wholly creative: a nude woman is rubbed in batter and deep-fried before being decapitated, topless cheerleaders are shot to hell by a man in a Reagan mask, and a cavorting young couple are speared mid-hump by a falling stalactite. At “Club Dread,” punks slam to Austin band Dino Lee & the White Trash Revue. The singer sports a gargantuan pompadour, ladies with blue wigs dance on stage, and all of this is backed by a band of Nazi musicians. Zaaamm! The plot is basically (and intentionally) the ‘60s classic BLOOD FEAST with an overdose-level injection of ‘80s insanity. Dammit, what’s NOT in this movie…with its kung-fu nudity, ventriloquist fry cooks, wrestling Hitlers and mambo-induced car fatalities? Hey, Jackie Kong! Come out of your hiding place, make some more perfect movies and save us all from this worthless modern world! (Bryan Connolly, BLOOD DINER fan # 1)
