I wish it was worse!
21 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Despite the amazingly cool (and kitschy) title, this film is MUCH more sedate and not nearly as bad as you might expect. Sure, it is bad--but with Jerry Warren directing, I really expected far worse!! After all, this is the same guy who brought us "Teenage Zombies", "The Incredible Petrified World" and "Frankenstein Island"--all absolutely terrible films. I wish it had been worse--then at least it would have been good for bad movie buffs.

The film is set in South America at some French penal colony like Devil's Island. Oddly, however, not one person in the film has a French accent and the film seems about as French as Chop Suey. In fact, throughout the film there are clumsily inserted scenes of native dancing girls who are supposed to be South American--but they clearly are Asians living in the South American jungle!!

"Terror of the Bloodhunters" begins with a shipment of prisoners being brought to the island. One of them, Steve Duval (Robert Clarke) is a political prisoner--sent there because of the books he's written. The commandant's dissatisfied daughter, Marlene (Dorothy Haney) is dying to escape the wretched place and helps Duval to escape. Together with one of Duval's expendable friends they set into the dense jungle (the sort made up mostly of old stock footage). Can they survive? And, more importantly, do you even care?

The film is extremely talky, has almost no bloodhunters in it and it a pretty dull film. Clearly it's bad but it is amazingly low-key and lacks the tackiness I'd hoped to find. Instead, it's just boring--and not a film I could recommend unless you either need to get some sleep or if you are a masochist.
