I had no idea what kind of film I was about to watch, and still didn't have much of a clue by the end of it. This semi-psychedelic groove fest involves a doctor being blackmailed for fifty grand by a guy with a mullet (seems he used to do back room abortions) and having to team up with the daughter of one of his patients, but she's not too sane as she's always putting the moves on him (and the pool cleaner, who runs off once she disrobes and chases him around the pool).
Her dad is dying of some heart condition and although she superficially acts like the loving daughter, she's actually a loony high on amyl nitrate (she also gives the doctor some, leading to a trippy sex scene). Meanwhile, the doctor's girlfriend (who also gets naked quite frequently) is trying to figure out a way to get the mullet guy off her boyfriend's back (also involves sex, doesn't work). When the crazy daughter says that she could be due some cash from her inheritance, things take off down murderous road, with a few twists and surprises thrown in for good measure (including a brutal murder).
They sure don't make them like this any more. Probably for good reason. Alternatively slow and then engaging, then slow again, then trippy, then violent, Blood Mania still manages to keep your attention due to the frequent nudity during the first half, then all the violence in the second half. I did have a laugh when the doctor managed to whoo and then bed the other daughter over the course of one day. Oh, and wait till you get a load of that picture the crazy daughter's painting! The murder at the end was a bit of a shock, but please remember I am very easy to please when it comes to films like this, and I'm a lot more patient than most people. It was a good looking film, and a bit hard to categorise.
