Trivia:
Producer David F. Friedman came up with some very effective publicity stunts for "Blood Feast" which included giving theater goers vomit bags reading "You may need this when you see 'Blood Feast'" and obtaining an injunction against the film in Sarasota, Florida, which of course only generated more interest in the film.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Ishtar was actually an ancient Babylonian mythological goddess, not an Egyptian one, though Lewis and Friedman were aware of this.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]

Gordon Lewis Rules, 12 February 2004
Author: yediotm from Israel

Herschell is maybe my favorite gore director. The person who invented genres off handedly, does it again - for the first time! Wonderful colors, very disturbing plot. John Waters used to watch these films as a young man. One could see Herschell's effect on Waters later films like 'Pink Flamingos' when you look at Herschells colors (color me blood red) and the trashy- campy acting, costumes and settings. When I think of flesh Water's star Divine - i have to admit - Waters saved some of that gore effect that Herschell has in his films. The effect of real fleshy gore!
