I Drink Your Blood


by Tuna

Original print ad from the drive-in double feature.

A group of acid-dropping satanic hippies have car trouble, and walk to the nearest town, which is mostly deserted while a dam is being built. A bakery is still open because the woman who owns it is doing the nasty with the foreman of the dam construction. The nasty hippies walk into town, buy some baked goods, then discover that the town is deserted, and decide to move into a boarded-up hotel. To their delight it is full of rats, thus providing them with hours of hunting and frolicking pleasure.

An elderly gent discovers that the hippies are the same ones who molested his granddaughter when she accidentally saw their satanic ceremony, so he heads over to the hotel with a shotgun to teach them some manners. They easily subdue him and feed him acid. His young grandson takes a dim view of this grampa violation, and comes up with the perfect revenge plot. He goes out and shoots a convenient rabid dog, injects the dog's blood into a dozen meat pies in the bakery, and sells it to the group the next morning.

Now the story really gets going, with a rabid acid-eating satanic hippie cult.

I Drink Your Blood is a charmingly quirky little over-the-top horror offering. If you like a little nudity with your gore, this fills the bill nicely, and does provide some genuinely creepy moments.
