Storyline

Millionaire playboy Hugo (whose lack of facial expressions give him the appearance of a Thundercat marionette) flies around Acapulco in his private helicopter to pick up sexy young women. He whisks them away to his secluded old castle, where he wines and dines them (among other things, *wink*). With the aid of his bald mute little helper Gorgo, he kills his dates, keeping their heads in a crystal cage and feeding their chopped up body parts to his 1,000-strong army of blood thirty, flesh hungry cats.

Blood Feast too
30 September 2008 | by (Tallahassee, Florida) – See all my reviews

Also known as Night of 1,000 Cats. Back in the 90's, when I was a teenager, I got into B-horror. and always heard about Herschell Gordon Lewis's Blood Feast, so I rented it, and ended up with this, but the disappointment was brief, because Blood Feast too is actually a damn fine movie. A Mexican production, mostly concerns a rich, young playboy cruising Acapulco, in his helicopter, searching for women who are impressed by guys in helicopters. The impressed get taken back to the castle, then wined, then dined, laid, murdered, and then fed to his 1,000 cats. It's all good, though, because he saves their heads for his collection. This pattern is repeated until the end, or until you get bored and pop in something more worthwhile, like Messiah Of Evil. Night of 1,000 cats was directed by Rene Cardona Jr, son of Rene Cardona, who is responsible for a movie called Night of the Bloody Apes. You would think a film with the words "bloody" and "apes" in the title, which also involves womens wrestling, would be 1,000 times better than the helicopter movie about the cats, that steals legendary titles, but then again, stranger things have happened. So, why did they call it Blood Feast? I'm sure someone knows. Not a lot of dialogue, here, but somehow doesn't seem to matter. Blood Feast is very "to the point", but, of course, doesn't have the gore, or the legendary status of its namesake, but, let's not hold that against it. So, if you can appreciate felines, pleasant Mexican beach scenery, and hefty amounts of helicopter footage, you might not hate Blood Feast too. 7/10
