A band of satanist hippies roll into a town and begin terrorizing the local folk. They rape a local girl and her grandpa goes after them. He fails and is given LSD. This bothers his grandson and he gets back at the hippies by feeding them meat pies infected with blood from a rabid dog. They turn into crazed lunatics and begin killing and/or infecting everything in their path. Written by

He's not drunk, stupid. He's been doped!
With that stuff that they call LSD. The whole bunch take it.
What does it do, that L-whatever you call it?

One of the most spectacularly rancid exploitation films ever made
"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)
