Trivia

According to director David E. Durston, when the film was originally given an "X" rating by the MPAA, theaters threatened to pull the film entirely. The distribution company then granted the theaters permission to edit the film themselves as long as they would still attempt to show it. As a result of this agreement, Durston says there were hundreds of different "versions" of the film due to individual theaters editing their own reels of I Drink Your Blood. See more »

Goofs

Back home after being dosed with LSD, Doc Banner is sitting at his kitchen table. As Sylvia says, "Come on, Grandpa," and helps him up, the moving shadow of the mike and boom isvisible on the refrigerator and wall directly behind them, to the right of Sylvia's head. See more »

A no gross Jerry Gross production
22 July 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

Wow, talk about drive-in fare. The acting is terrible and the dialog is unbelievable and yet this one's kinda campy in it's own way, forcing me to laugh at it in parts.

This DVD supposedly has the original 'X-rated' (for violence) version that the MPAA gave back in '71, but since there really isn't any graphic sex in it, I don't see much of anything 'X-rated' about it.

A hippy cult's van breaks down near a near-deserted town in upstate New York. The hippies rape a local kid's sister and feed his grandfather LSD for kicks. The grandfather's tripping-out scene is pretty funny.

The kid comes up with a brilliant idea for revenge by contaminating some meat pies with rabies-infected blood taken from a dead dog he had shot earlier, and feeding them to the unsuspecting hippies. Most of the hippies eat them (except for two guys) and they start getting feverish and kill one another. The ax scene where the black guy flips out and cuts off the other hippie's leg looks pretty cool.

Next thing ya know, a construction crew from a nearby dam site have sex with one of the hippie girls and get infected that way. Pretty soon, most everyone left in town is foaming at the mouth, especially the black guy who goes running around wide-eyed, looking like a crazed lunatic. It's hilarious.

The Grindhouse DVD has plenty of extras including an alternate downbeat ending (it's quite different from the one they actually used) where Mildred Nash shoots Roger in the mouth in a fit of rabies rage. She was infected earlier when one of the construction workers bit her while she was trying to escape in the old '62 Ford station wagon.

We also get as extras, 2002 interviews with Lynn Lowry (who's aged gracefully), John McCook, David Dunston, etc. They give a quick history behind the making of this film, inspired by (sur-prise!) George Romero.

I'll give it a 5 out of 10 for inspiring a few laughs.
