Trivia

Durston originally entitled the film "Phobia" - however the distributors felt the film needed to be a double-feature. An ad executive came up with the promotion of a double feature of films called "I Drink Your Blood" and "I Eat Your Skin." This is how Durston's film came to be named "I Drink Your Blood" despite the fact that no one's blood is ever drank in the film. 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 »

One of the most spectacularly rancid exploitation films ever made
15 January 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"I Drink Your Blood" is one of the most spectacularly rancid exploitation films ever made! It was produced so the filmmakers could pair it up with the unreleased "I Eat Your Skin" (maybe they should have added "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and made it a triple bill) for drive-ins across America. For a film made on the fly, this is actually pretty decent. Sure the acting is horrible and the screenplay is ridiculous, but its never boring and it certainly delivers on the sleaze and gore merits. There's rabid satanic hippies (whose leaders look uncomfortably like Greg Kinnear and Cleavon Little), a pregnant woman stabbing herself in the stomach, LSD (referred to as "that crazy L stuff), and a hilariously close-minded conservative message. If this doesn't sound enticing, I question your exploitation film appreciation. Surprisingly, the direction is competent for this kind of film, with some cool angels and good pacing.

On the negative side, there is some animal cruelty which is unacceptable no matter what. Fortunately, its brief and not nearly as in your face as it is in the Italian cannibal flicks of the lat 70s. The gore effects are nonstop and are likely to elicit laughter from the audience (whats not to love about a rabid hippie running around with an ax?). "I Drink Your Blood" isn't a masterpiece, but is lots of fun and never boring. Definitely an exploitation classic. (7/10)
