Ghastly Tales Drenched with Gouts of Blood! Carnage and Violence Mark this Double-Barralled NIGHT OF HORROR! (May, 1969)

I haven’t had the pleasure of watching Herschell Gordon Lewis’ A Taste of Blood yet, but from what I’ve read I think I need to take a look — and fast. Seems somebody has accidentally ingested some blood of Dracula, who is now seeking revenge on the descendents of those who done the Transylvanian Count in. That’s right: an unofficial sequel to Bram Stoker’s novel that clocks in at an astonishing 2 hours! No wonder it’s referred to as Lewis’ Gone with the Wind. As for our second feature, I’ve only seen the MST3k’d version of Teen-Age Strangler a/k/a Terror in the Night but I always kinda dug the hometown auteur flavor of the proceedings. It’s clumsy and a bit kooky, but it also has a bit of a nasty streak, making it worth a look unmolested — if you can find it.

  1. Two stinkers but the last Drive-in adds The Horrible Dr. Hichcock, now that one is a classic and a great movie. Hichock was re-released during that time (1967) along with its original co-feature The Awfull Dr. Orloff. That double bill had done great back in 1964 on its original american release.

    great blog BTW.
