Did You Know?


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 »

Where is Louis Pasteur When You Need Him?

A band of devil-worshipping hippies take root in a small town that has been evacuated save a group of construction workers, a baker, and a family led by Grandpa the veterinarian. While holing themselves up in a rat-infested hotel(where the hippies actually play a game of who can kill the most rats for the rat barbecue), they are confronted by an irate Grandpa the vet. They force him to take some lsd and beat him up. Grandpa's grandson gets back by injecting a dozen meat pies with rabies from a dog he shot later that evening. The hippies go mad and all those people they infect do likewise. This film is rather distasteful, yet strangely interesting. It is definitely a low-budget affair as no one in it has a name and the special effects are extremely poor. The film is markedly gruesome as you see a man stabbed repeatedly, a leg, hand, head chopped off, and crazed hippies with bloody hands wielding axes, a sword, even an electric carving knife! The producer's name does his film great honor...his name is Jerry Gross.
