Directed by Hershell Gordon Lewis
This is yet another entry in the vast directorial library of a man lovingly referred to as the Godfather of Gore, and a follow up to the 1963 shocker BloodFeast. Don't be fooled it contains similar amounts of 'camp' and 'cheese' as his first film, but I will dare to say it, the acting is a tad better.
This movie boasts a larger cast and yet still manages to feature both Connie Mason (former Playmate) and other recognizable actors from BloodFeast. Yet again, as with the first, I was a little timid about its viewing yet I found myself smiling with appreciation as I watched. The creepiness found in some scenes is tangible, the movie as a whole is enjoyably absurd, and you may find yourself yelling at characters...
“How could anyone possibly be that dumb!”
The 'Barrel roll' scene excited me the most, but that's possibly because I'm a severely warped individual. For a movie from almost fifty years ago (wow!) the payoff is very well executed (pun!). There are plenty more moments to whet your appetite too, thus the reason why I am giving this a high recommendation.
* Scribbler’s Side Note: There are already a couple of sequels, and why in this current climate of unimagination wouldn't there be? The cast of one in particular, 2001 Maniacs, includes Robert Englund (you better know who that is!) it deserves a peek also.
